Capnodiaceae, Sooty Molds of Florida, Cyclic Patterns in Sooty Molds
Monographic work (Reynolds, 1970; Reynolds, 197la; Reynolds, 197lb) suggests that sooty molds exhibit distinct cyclic patterns of growth and reproduction. Furthermore, a tally of collection data recorded in other monographic work (Batista and Ciferri, 1962; Batista and Ciferri, 1963a) suggests that the sexual fruit bodies of ascomycetous neotropical sooty molds are prevalent during the drier season of the year. Asexual sooty molds may also occur seasonally (Batista and Ciferri, 1963b). A study was begun approximately two years ago to determine the reproductive unit frequency of select sooty molds at various times of the year.
