Publication History

Published Online:


This is the first of a three-paper series that reports on the abundance, identity, and diversity of microorganisms isolated from dead-stacked yellow-poplar lumber in four time periods during the spring and summer of 2000. This paper focuses on filamentous fungi. Over the entire period, a total of 427 fungal isolates were obtained and 14 species representing 12 genera were identified. Nearly 15% of the fungal isolates were not identified. In total, fungal colonies accounted for 41% of the total abundance of microorganisms that were isolated from samples during this entire study. Penicillium implicatum and Aspergillus versicolor were the predominant fungal species identified and accounted for 29.7% and 14.5%, respectively, of the total fungal isolates. Penicillium sp was the most commonly isolated genera. Other fungi isolated at lower frequencies include Graphium penicilliodes, Cladosporium cladosporioides, Trichoderma harzium, Alternaria alternata, A. tenuissima, Epicoccum purpurscens, Hormoconis resinae, Fusarium monoilforme, Geotrichum sp, Chaetomium globosum, and Exophiala jeanselmi.
