Endophytic colonisation of tobacco, corn, wheat and soybeans by the fungal entomopathogen Beauveria bassiana (Ascomycota, Hypocreales)
TLDR
Three inoculation methods are demonstrated in establishing fungal the entomopathogen Beauveria bassiana as an endophyte in tobacco, corn, wheat and soybean and there were significant differences in endophytic colonisation among the different inoculation techniques. Expand
New records of entomopathogenic fungi infecting Bemisia tabaci and Trialeurodes vaporariorum, pests of horticultural crops, in Argentina
TLDR
These are the first records of natural infections in the southernmost region of the South American continent of L. lecanii, L. longisporum and Isaria javanica and also the first report of I. fumosorosea on B. tabaci. Expand
Endophytic colonisation of tomato by the entomopathogenic fungus Beauveria bassiana: the use of different inoculation techniques and their effects on the tomato leafminer Tuta absoluta (Lepidoptera:
TLDR
The results suggest that the endophytic inoculation of B. bassiana in tomato crops provides the basis for further investigation, which should focus on the virulence of theendophytic B.bassiana against T. absoluta. Expand
Natural occurrence of entomopathogenic fungi (Zygomycetes: Entomophthorales) of aphid (Hemiptera: Aphididae) pests of horticultural crops in Argentina
TLDR
A three-year survey of entomophthoralean pathogenic fungi of aphids from horticultural crops in La Plata, Argentina, found Pandora neoaphidis was the most predominant pathogen of aphid and was found throughout the summer of 2004. Expand
Screening for a culture medium yielding optimal colony growth, zoospore yield and infectivity of different isolates of Leptolegnia chapmanii (Straminipila: Peronosporomycetes)
TLDR
For the cultivation and maintenance of L. chapmanii isolates, the medium of choice among those tested is FORT(agar), as it is both inexpensive to prepare and ensures optimal colony development, extremely high zoospore production, and excellent maintenance of fungal infectivity. Expand
Trichomycetes living in the guts of aquatic insects of Misiones and Tierra del Fuego, Argentina.
TLDR
The lower diversity of Trichomycetes found at Misiones, which has a subtropical climate and rainforest vegetation, was due possibly to the warmer temperatures of the water compared to the colder streams of Tierra del Fuego, with forests and steppes as typical vegetation. Expand
Host range and specificity of an Argentinean isolate of the aquatic fungus Leptolegnia chapmanii (Oomycetes: Saprolegniales), a pathogen of mosquito larvae (Diptera: Culicidae)
TLDR
An isolate from Argentina of the fungal mosquito pathogen Leptolegnia chapmanii, was tested against 12 species of mosquito larvae and on species of non-target aquatic invertebrates and vertebrates, finding members of the Family Chironomidae which were susceptible at low infection rates. Expand
Endophytic fungi from selected varieties of soybean (Glycine max L. Merr.) and corn (Zea mays L.) grown in an agricultural area of Argentina.
TLDR
Fungal endophyte colonization in soybean plants was influenced by tissue type and varieties whereas in corn plants only by tissue types, which could be relevant in the search for endophytic fungi isolates that could be of interest in the control of agricultural pests. Expand
Compatibility between entomopathogenic fungi and biorational insecticides in toxicity against Ronderosia bergi under laboratory conditions
TLDR
The use of these biorational insecticides in an IPM program aimed at control of the grasshopper R. bergi could be of value, and did not affect the isolates of the two species of entomopathogenic fungi employed. Expand
Effect of endophytic entomopathogenic fungi on soybean Glycine max (L.) Merr. growth and yield
TLDR
It was demonstrated for the first time that inoculation with B. bassiana promoted the growth and increased the yield of soybean plants under filed conditions, with no adverse effects observed in the inoculated plants. Expand
