This Special Issue is dedicated to Professor Wen-Ying Zhuang in recognition of her remarkable contributions to the field of mycology.
Professor Zhuang is an outstanding mycologist in China and worldwide. Over the past 46 years, she has investigated fungal diversity from 26 provinces and districts of China and left her footprints to forests, deserts, islands, plateaus and other various environments. Prof. Zhuang collected and preserved numerous fungal specimens and cultures precious for scientific research and economic utilization. On the basis of these resources, she has introduced and described one new family, 13 new genera and 360 new species of fungi, and resolved many taxonomic and nomenclature problems. Her collaboration with international colleagues contributed greatly to the phylogenetic reconstructions and selections of DNA barcodes for Leotiomycetes, Helotiales, Hypocreales and other important fungal groups. She or with co-authors has published over 290 articles including monographic treatments of three fungal genera, editor or chapter author of 18 monographs including as one of the contributors to Dictionary of the Fungi (edition 9) and Deputy Editor-in-Chief of Florarum Cryptogamarum Sinicarum. Prof. Zhuang has been elected as Member of Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS), Fellow of the World Academy of Sciences (TWAS), Member of International Eurasian Academy of Sciences (IEAS), Honorary Member of Mycological Society of America (MSA), and the executive committee member of International Mycological Association (IMA). In honor of her outstanding contribution, one fungal genus Wenyingia and one bacterial genus Wenyingzhuangia have been named after her. More recently, her research on Trichoderma significantly renews our understanding on its species diversity, distribution and potential application capacities.
In honor and recognition of Professor Wen-Ying Zhuang’s outstanding contributions to this field, this Special Issue welcomes the submission of original research manuscripts or reviews in the area of Mycology. Manuscripts will be published online on an ongoing basis after being processed.
