Endophytes of native grasses from South America: Biodiversity and ecology
Abstract We review and present preliminary results of studies on cool-season grass endophytes native to South America. These fungi have been studied only in Argentina, where they have been detectedExpand

Diversity and significance of fungal endophytes from living stems of naturalized trees from Argentina
Fungal endophytes inhabit healthy tissues of all terrestrial taxa studied to date; however, fungi associated with woody tissue have been frequently overlooked. Here, we examined endophytes associatedExpand

Metagenomic approach of associated fungi with Megaplatypus mutatus (Coleoptera: Platypodinae)
Megaplatypus mutatus is a major forest pest in Argentina and an emerging pest in Europe. In this study the multitrophic interactions between M. mutatus and associated fungi were assessed with aExpand

Seed-transmitted Epichloë sp. endophyte alleviates the negative effects of head smut of grasses (Ustilago bullata) on Bromus auleticus
Abstract Some grasses are co-infected by ‘castrator’ fungal pathogens, such as Ustilago bullata, and beneficial seed-transmitted Epichloe endophytes that compete for plant photosynthates and flowers.Expand

Epichloë endophytes of a wild grass promote mycorrhizal colonization of neighbor grasses
Abstract A field experiment was performed to study the effect of Epichloe endophytes of the wild forage grass Bromus auleticus on mycorrhizal colonization, seedling emergence and growth parameters inExpand

Optical study of laser biospeckle activity in leaves of Jatropha curcas L. A noninvasive analysis of foliar endophyte colonization
Currently, the detection of endophytic fungi is determined mostly by invasive methods, including direct isolation of fungal organismsfrom plant tissue in growth media, molecular detection ofExpand
Diversity of foliar endophytes in a dioecious wild grass and their interaction with the systemic Epichloë
Abstract This study compares the culturable fungal endophytic community inhabiting leaves of Epichloe-infected (E+) and Epichloe-free (E-) plants of Poa bonariensis. Plants were collected from a wildExpand
