The endophytic continuum.
It is hypothesized that the endophytes, in contrast to known pathogens, generally have far greater phenotypic plasticity and thus more options than pathogens: infection, local but also extensive colonisation, latency, virulence, pathogenity and (or) saprophytism.

It is hypothesize that the interaction fungal endophyte-plant host is characterized by a finely tuned equilibrium between fungal virulence and plant defence, and if this balance is disturbed by either a decrease in plant defence or an increase in fungalvirulence, disease develops.
Fungi from marine sponges: diversity, biological activity and secondary metabolites
A high proportion of culture extracts of sponge-associated fungi was biologically active in tests to detect antifungal, antialgal, and antibacterial activity, cytotoxicity and inhibition of reverse-transcriptase and tyrosine kinase.
The endophyte-host interaction: a balanced antagonism?
Both the pathogen-host and the endophyte-host interactions involve constant mutual antagonisms at least in part based on the secondary metabolites the partners produce, and that of theendophyte and its host is a balanced antagonism.
Endophyte-host interactions. II. Defining symbiosis of the endophyte-host interaction
We provide evidence that the symbiosis of fungal endophyte and plant host should only be defined in the broad sense as originally used by De Bary to mean the living together of organisms of…
Metabolites from the Endophytic Fungus Nodulisporium sp. from Juniperus cedre
Seven new metabolites, 3-hydroxy-1-(2,6-dihydroxyphenyl)butan-1-one (1), 1-(2-hydroxy-6-methoxyphenyl)butan-1-one (3), 2,3-dihydro-5-methoxy-2-methylchromen-4-one (6), the dimeric naphthalenes…
Molecular detection of ascomycetes associated with Fucus serratus.
The association of ascomycetes with Fucus serratus was investigated by comparing the broad-based molecular and cultural diversities of healthy and dead fronds, suggesting that fungal colonisation of fronds was limited, mainly to species in dead casts.
