Cover for Endophytic fungi: definitions, diversity, distribution and their significance in plant life.

Endophytes are set opposite to pathogens and therefore should colonize plants asymptomatically. However, as will be illustrated, endophytic fungi may behave differently under various biotic and abiotic circumstances, in which the host plant can play a defining role as well. The genetic differences...

Cover for Endophytes as novel pest control agents: myth or reality?

Endophytic fungi are ubiquitous in nature and their potential for pest control in grassland systems is well understood. However, their role as novel pest control agents in herbaceous crops is far less clear. These fungi can be broadly split into two groups: unspecialized species (including...

Cover for Saving resources: the exploitation of endophytes by plants for the biosynthesis of multi-functional defence compounds.

Plants are effective in defending themselves against herbivores, parasites and pathogens. To accomplish this, they employ various strategies, one of them being the synthesis of antimicrobial and antiherbivory compounds. To reduce the amount of energy spent, such compounds can be efficiently...

Cover for <i xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">Ganoderma</i> pathogenicity testing.

Trichoderma isolates may be screened for their effectiveness in antagonizing Ganoderma in both nursery and field tests. For this, Ganoderma as a source of disease (inoculum) is required. A recommended first step is to collect Ganoderma basidiocarps from Ganoderma infected palms and to then culture...

Cover for <i xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">In vitro trichoderma</i> antagonism screening.

A protocol is described of how to carry out an in vitro test to assess Trichoderma antagonism against Ganoderma. This is known as a Dual Culture Test. Dual culture is a simple method which, as implied, involves growing Trichoderma along side Ganoderma in a culture plate. The medium used to grow...
