  • 1 March 2001
The loss of organic material from the roots provides the energy for the development of active microbial populations in the rhizosphere around the root. Generally, saproptrophs or biotrophs such asExpand

Isolation and characterization of actinomycete antagonists of a fungal root pathogen.
By use of selective media, 267 actinomycete strains were isolated from four rhizosphere-associated and four non-rhizosphere-associated British soils. Organic media with low nutrient concentrationsExpand

Substrate flow in the rhizosphere
The major source of substrates for microbial activity in the ectorhizosphere and on the rhizoplane are rhizodeposition products. They are composed of exudates, lysates, mucilage, secretions and deadExpand

Phyllosphere microbiology with special reference to diversity and plant genotype
The phyllosphere represents the habitat provided by the aboveground parts of plants, and on a global scale supports a large and complex microbial community. Microbial interactions in the phyllosphereExpand

Prospects and limitations for mycorrhizas in biocontrol of root pathogens
More than 80 disease biocontrol products are on the market worldwide, but none of these contain mycor rhizal fungi. This is despite ample evidence that both arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi andExpand

EFFECT OF MEDIA ON GROWTH AND INTERACTIONS BETWEEN A RANGE OF SOIL‐BORNE GLASSHOUSE PATHOGENS AND ANTAGONISTIC FUNGI
Summary The growth of and interactions between the glasshouse pathogens, Rhizoctonia solani Kuhn, Fusarium oxysporum Schlect., Pyrenochaeta lycopersici Schneider & Gerlach, Phomopsis sclerotioidesExpand

The use of colony development for the characterization of bacterial communities in soil and on roots
A simple agar plating method for the description of microbial communities is described. This method is based on the quantification of the numbers of bacterial colonies in 6–7 age-based classes asExpand

Bacteria associated with Pinus sylvestris-Lactarius rufus ectomycorrhizas and their effects on mycorrhiza formation in vitro.
•  The structure and functioning of mycorrhizosphere bacterial communities from the soil organic fermentation horizon (FH) of a Pinus sylvestris stand was investigated. •  Bacteria were isolated fromExpand

Ascospore release and survival in Sclerotinia sclerotiorum.
The release and survival of ascospores of a UK Sclerotinia sclerotiorum isolate were studied. Apothecia placed in a spore clock apparatus with different lighting regimes at 15 degrees C releasedExpand

Glasshouse trials of Coniothyrium minitans and Trichoderma species for the biological control of Sclerotinia sclerotiorum in celery and lettuce.
Coniothyrium minitans, Trichoderma harzianum (HH3) and Trichoderma sp. (B1) were tested for ability to control disease caused by Sclerotinia sclerotiorum in a sequence of a celery crop and twoExpand
