Special Issue "Phylogeny and Taxonomy of Ascomycete Fungi"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 July 2023) | Viewed by 10910
The vertiginous and remarkable development of fungal phylogenetic studies based on DNA sequence data analysis promotes the number of novelties described each year and their positive impact on the knowledge of fungal diversity. However, phenotypic descriptions, which have been the traditional support for proposing a new taxon and still remain in the international literature, are not performed with standard criteria such as phylogenetic ones.
During the last two decades, the phylogeny and taxonomy of ascomycete fungi has undergone remarkable advances after the development and perfection of techniques for studying the fungal genome. A significant number of species hidden in several fungal genera have been described and documented, and their concept, delimitation, or fusion with other previously described genera has been revised.
This Special Issue on “Phylogeny and Taxonomy of Ascomycete Fungi” aims to enrich the academic field. Any research articles, reviews, and opinions addressing relevant topics in ascomycete species are welcomed.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Journal of Fungi is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2600 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
