A Sebacinales species was recovered from a clone library made from a pooled rhizosphere sample of Nicotiana attenuata plants from 14 native populations. Axenic cultures of the related species, Piriformospora indica and Sebacina vermifera, were used to examine their effects on plant performance. Inoculation of N. attenuata seeds with either fungus species(More)
Bacteria play important roles in plant–herbivore interactions and communicate with each other with chemical signals, often N-acylhomoserine lactones (AHL). Plant responses to these signals may influence resistance to microbial attack, but the effects of these signals on herbivore defense are unstudied. To determine whether AHL influence jasmonate(More)
Sebacina vermifera, a growth-promoting endophytic fungus, significantly increases Nicotiana attenuata's growth but impairs both its herbivore resistance and its accumulation of the costly, jasmonic acid (JA)-regulated defense protein, trypsin proteinase inhibitor (TPI). To determine if the fungi's growth-promoting effects can be attributed to lower(More)
