SCHOENLEIN-CRUSIUS, Iracema Helena et al. Microscopic fungi in the Atlantic Rainforest in Cubatão, São Paulo, Brazil. Braz. J. Microbiol. [online]. 2006, vol.37, n.3, pp.267-275. ISSN 1517-8382.

This article presents a survey of fungi obtained from soil, water and mixed leaf litter samples taken from the Atlantic Rainforest in the municipality of Cubatão, in the State of São Paulo, during the years of 1993 to 1995. Using different techniques for the isolation of microscopic fungi, a total of 280 taxa was obtained (66 zoosporic fungi, 40 Mucorales, 45 Glomales, 125 anamorphs, three Ascomycota and one Basidiomycota), with 23 species being reported for the first time in Brazil.
