Fungus-growing ants use antibiotic-producing bacteria to control garden parasites
The well-studied, ancient and highly evolved mutualism between fungus-growing ants and their fungi has become a model system in the study of symbiosis. Although it is thought at present to involveExpand

The agricultural pathology of ant fungus gardens.
Gardens of fungus-growing ants (Formicidae: Attini) traditionally have been thought to be free of microbial parasites, with the fungal mutualist maintained in nearly pure "monocultures." We conductedExpand

The biofiltration of indoor air: implications for air quality.
An alternative method of maintaining indoor air quality may be through the biofiltration of air recirculating within the structure rather than the traditional approach of ventilation. This approachExpand

Sporovexins A-C and a new preussomerin analog: antibacterial and antifungal metabolites from the coprophilous fungus Sporormiella vexans.
Sporovexins A-C (1-3) and 3'-O-desmethyl-1-epipreussomerin C (4) have been isolated from liquid cultures of the coprophilous fungus Sporormiella vexans (JS 306). The structures of these newExpand

Bat Populations and Cave Microclimate Prior to and at the Outbreak of White-Nose Syndrome in New Brunswick
Information on bat populations and hibernacula is important for understanding the impacts of white-nose syndrome (WNS), a fatal fungal disease of bats. Estimates of bat populations prior to theExpand

Quantifying Hg within ectomycorrhizal fruiting bodies, from emergence to senescence.
Ectomycorrhizal fruiting bodies (basidiomata) collected from forested areas in southwestern New Brunswick were analyzed for total mercury, sulphur, nitrogen, and carbon concentrations (THg, TS, TN,Expand
