  1. family xylariaceae

    Family Xylariaceae is a diverse family of fungi in the class of Ascomycetes, primarily known for its members that appear as dark colored or black blobs, spheres or stalked cups on decaying or dead organic matter, especially wood. Xylariaceae often present a two-phase life cycle with an asexual stage characterized by development of spores on conidiophores, and a sexual stage producing ascospores within a hardened fruiting body. Members of this family are found worldwide and play an important role in the decomposition and nutrient cycling processes in many ecosystems. Some species are also known to interact with other organisms as biological control agents or endophytes.
