Colonization of plant roots by egg-parasitic and nematode-trapping fungi
• The ability of the nematode-trapping fungus Arthrobotrys oligospora and the nematode egg parasite Verticillium chlamydosporium to colonize barley (Hordeum vulgare) and tomato (LycopersicumExpand

In vitro soil receptivity assays to egg-parasitic nematophagous fungi
Soil application of nematophagous fungi for the biological control of plant-parasitic nematodes often fails, and in many cases it has been difficult to reisolate the agent delivered to the soil. AExpand

Pre-penetration events in fungal parasitism of nematode eggs
The present investigation deals with the main factors involved in early infection of nematode eggs by fungal parasites. We studied the effect of hydrophobicity on appressorium formation by germlingsExpand

Colonisation of seminal roots of wheat and barley by egg-parasitic nematophagous fungi and their effects on Gaeumannomyces graminis var. tritici and development of root-rot
Abstract This study provides evidence that egg-parasitic nematophagous fungi, Pochonia chlamydosporia, Pochonia rubescens and Lecanicillium lecanii, can also reduce root colonisation and root damageExpand

Transformation of Bipolaris sorokiniana with the GUS gene and use for studying fungal colonization of barley roots
Bipolaris sorokiniana, a fungal pathogen of cereals, was transformed with the GUS (β-glucuronidase) gene, using a plasmid (pGUS5) containing GUS A with the constitutive promotor GPD-1 and aExpand
