Species of Aspergillus, Penicillium, Talaromyces and related genera (Eurotiales) are ubiquitous in the environments and of industrial, agricultural and clinical importance. These species are able to grow at a broad range of different physiological conditions, such as low water activity, low pH levels and low or high temperatures. They have a huge impact on daily life, both positive and negative. The positive aspects include their use in food fermentation, biotechnology for the production of enzymes, organic acids and drugs, while the negative aspects include food spoilage and mycotoxin production, indoor growth and causing opportunistic infections.
The impact of these species has resulted in high interest in the taxonomy of this group of fungi, resulting in an increase in newly described species in the last few decades.
This Special Issue will focus on the diversity, classification and taxonomy of Aspergillus, Penicillium and Talaromyces. Studies covering the discovery and descriptions of new species/taxa of this group of fungi, found in air, animals, humans, indoor, plants, soil and other environments are welcome.
