Identification of a whitefly species by genomic and behavioral studies.
An introduced whitefly species, responsible for over a half billion dollars in damage to U.S. agricultural production in 1991, is morphologically indistinguishable from Bemisia tabaci (Gennadius).Expand

A Virus in a Fungus in a Plant: Three-Way Symbiosis Required for Thermal Tolerance
A mutualistic association between a fungal endophyte and a tropical panic grass allows both organisms to grow at high soil temperatures. We characterized a virus from this fungus that is involved inExpand

Thermotolerance Generated by Plant/Fungal Symbiosis
All plants studied in natural ecosystems are symbiotic with fungi ([1][1]), which obtain nutrients while either positively, negatively, or neutrally affecting host fitness ([2][2]). Plant adaptationExpand

Green Fluorescent Protein Is Lighting Up Fungal Biology
Prasher ([42][1]) cloned a cDNA for the green fluorescent protein (GFP) gene from the jellyfish Aequorea victoria in 1992. Shortly thereafter, to the amazement of many investigators, this gene orExpand

The Role of Fungal Symbioses in the Adaptation of Plants to High Stress Environments
All plants studied in natural ecosystemsare symbiotic with fungi that either resideentirely (endophytes) or partially(mycorrhizae) within plants. Thesesymbioses appear to adapt to biotic andabioticExpand

Spatial partitioning and asymmetric hybridization among sympatric coastal steelhead trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss irideus), coastal cutthroat trout (O. clarki clarki) and interspecific hybrids
Hybridization between sympatric species provides unique opportunities to examine the contrast between mechanisms that promote hybridization and maintain species integrity. We surveyed hybridizationExpand

Multiple functions for sterols in Saccharomyces cerevisiae.
Analyses with a yeast sterol auxotroph indicated that there are at least four different levels of function for sterol which have been designated sparking, critical domain, domain and bulk. Growth ofExpand

Differentiation of Colletotrichum species responsible for anthracnose of strawberry by arbitrarily primed PCR
A collection of 39 isolates of Colletotrichum acutatum, C. fragariae and C. gloeosporioides , which cause anthracnose on strawberry, was grouped into species based on the arbitrarily primedExpand
