Reduced parasitism of a leaf-mining moth on trees with high infection frequencies of an endophytic fungus
Investigation of relationships between endophytic fungi and a leaf-mining moth found survival of larvae was positively associated with the most dominant fungus, Gnomonia cerastis, owing to reduced parasitism of moth larvae on trees with high frequencies of Gnomania.
Interactions between host plants, endophytic fungi, and a phytophagous insect in an oak (Quercus grisea x Q. gambelii) hybrid zone
Observations of interactions between host plants, endophytic fungi, and leaf-mining moths (Phyllonorycter sp.) in an oak hybrid zone found total fungal frequency and frequency of Gnomonia cerastis were lowest on hosts resembling Q. grisea, and increased linearly towards those resemblingQ.
