Phylogeny of representative eumycota
This phylogram is based on parsimony analysis of nearly complete (ca. 1700 nt)
rDNA sequences. Bootstrap percentages of > 50 % (based on 200 bootstrap replications) are shown over thickened branches. Distance is relative to line length (scale on figure). This figure is adapted from: Gargas, A., P.T. DePriest, M. Grube & A. Tehler (1995) Multiple origins of lichen symbiosis in fungi suggested by SSU rDNA phylogeny. Science 268: 1492-1495.
Lichens are shown in green, animal pathogens in red.
