  1. 1The stringency and efficiency of RIP-like processes varies among euascomycete genomes.
  2. 2Asexual propagation is the most frequently observed reproductive mode in field settings. However, asexual lineages often either have the potential for sexual reproduction, as indicated by the presence of different mating types in populations, and/or phylogenetic evidence for recombination and cryptic speciation.
