Evaluation of augmentative release of Zygogramma bicolorata Pallister (Coleoptera: Chrysomelidae) for biological control of Parthenium hysterophorus L.
More is not necessarily better: the interaction between insect population density and culture age of fungus on the control of invasive weed water hyacinth
An initial development of a plant defense response due to mirid feeding delaying the pathogen from establishing is suggested to enhance the success rates of biological control of weeds.
Indian Sarsaparilla (Hemidesmus indicus): Recent progress in research on ethnobotany, phytochemistry and pharmacology.
Bacosides from Bacopa monnieri extract: An overview of the effects on neurological disorders
The main purpose of the present review is to shed light on the use of Bacopa monnieri and its active principles (bacosides) in the management of neurological disorders.
Fungal Endophyte: An Interactive Endosymbiont With the Capability of Modulating Host Physiology in Myriad Ways
The objective is to present an in-depth elucidation about the impact of fungal endophytes on plant physiology to make this evolutionarily conserved symbiotic interaction understandable from a broader perspective.
Evaluation of Indigenous Fungal Pathogens from Horse Purslane (Trianthema portulacastrum) for Their Relative Virulence and Host Range Assessments to Select a Potential Mycoherbicidal Agent
Preliminary host-range tests and pathogenicity studies demonstrated that P. herbarum is a good mycoherbicide candidate against horse purslane and was safe to most of the plant species tested.
Fungi associated with Eichhornia crassipes in South Africa and their pathogenicity under controlled conditions
Eichhornia crassipes Mart. Solms-Laubach (Pontederiaceae), water hyacinth, continues to be the world's worst aquatic weed. In South Africa, considerable research has been conducted on biological…
A glimpse into the compatibilities and conflicts between arthropods and fungal biological control agents of aquatic weed waterhyacinth
The results demonstrate the need for studies on biotic interactions among biocontrol agents, prior to release of the biocOntrol agents of weeds, to be carried out.
Non-target effect of herbicides on Neochetina spp, a biological control agent of waterhyacinth
Glyphosate caused the lowest mortality among the three herbicides tested and bioagent if used alone takes longer time, hence integration of herbicide in the area of 15 to 25% of the weed mats at suitable interval is recommended.
Elicitation of industrially promising vanillin type aromatic compound 2-hydroxy 4-methoxy benzaldehyde (MBAlD) yield in the in-vitro raised medicinal crop Hemidesmus indicus (L) R. Br. by methyl…
