Diversity of cellulase- and xylanase-producing filamentous fungi from termite mounds

Cellulases and xylanases are enzymes of industrial significance, particularly in the pulp, paper, textile, and animal feed industries. Moreover, their utilization in the food industry, among them, bakery, brewery, winery and fruit and vegetable juice production, cannot be underestimated. One of the potential sources of enzymes is the filamentous fungi, and hence bio-prospecting of this specific group of microorganisms...

Taxonomical study of the genus Amanita from Western Burkina Faso

Burkina Faso has abundant wild mushrooms, but very few inventories have been carried out to record these species. The shortage of taxonomic studies in Burkina Faso on wild mushroom species limits their knowledge. Three species of the genus Amanita from Burkina Faso are reported and fully described in this paper. They are Amanita pulverulenta Beeli, Amanita citrina (Schaeffer) Persoon and Amanita virido-odorata Beeli....
