Sample text

From a practical perspective, fungi having synanamorphs become difficult to classify, especially if a teleomorph is unknown. The term holomorph re­fers to the entire or whole fungus, including all of its morphologic forms. To avoid confusion in using these two different concepts, form-division, form-classes, form-orders, form-families, form-genera, and form-species are commonly used for the various anamorphs or conidial states. The prefix form- usually denotes that these groups are intended neither to show nor to imply phylogenetic (natural) relationships but only to serve as groupings for morphologically similar imperfect fungi, so that one my­cologist can effectively communicate with another.

McGINNIS WHO Collaborating Center for Tropical Diseases and University of Texas Medical Branch Galveston, Texas I. INTRODUCTION Taxonomy is concerned with the orderly classification of organisms as a means to show their presumed natural relationships. Decisions regarding the classification of fungi are based upon the experiences and perspectives of the taxonomists who are proposing the classification schemes. There are no committees or other official bodies that determine which classifica­tion scheme will serve as the accepted one.
