Title Cercosporoid fungi from wild banana and cultivated Chinese mesona in northern Taiwan

The personnel involved in the project:

Roland Kirschner

Sampling Methods

Living plant leaves were collected in the field, taken to the lab and investigated when still being fresh within a few days.

Study Extent The study was conducted in northern Taiwan; the datasets covers Taoyuan City and Taipei City
Quality Control Specimens were investigated with a dissecting microscope for detecting conidiophores and conidia. Conidia were transferred to agar media for cultivation. Cultures were used for DNA isolation and molecular characterization. DNA sequences were deposited at GenBank. In some cases living strains were deposited at BCRC. Leaves and/or cultures were used for microscopical morphological characterization and dried and deposited at TNM as voucher specimens.

Method step description:

  1. Field collection, light microscopy, in some cases scanning electron microscopy, cultivation, DNA isolation, PCR, sequencing, sequence analyses

Collection Data

Collection Name Herbarium and Botanical Garden, Department of Botany, National Museum of Natural Science, No. 1, Kuan-Chien. Road, Taichung 404, Taiwan, R.O.C..
Specimen preservation methods Dried and pressed
