Dear Dr. O'Donnell,

You might find these two references to be helpful;
 1) Lee, S.B. and Taylor, J.W. 1990.  Isolation of DNA from fungal 
mycelia and single spores.  PCR protocols: A Guide to Methods and 
Applicaitons 282-287.

2) Kuske c.R. et al.,1998. Small-scale DNA sample preparation Method for 
field PCR detection of microbial cells and spores in soil.  Appl Environ 
Microbiol vol 64 (7): 2463-2472.
Hope this helps.
