Endophytic colonisation of tobacco, corn, wheat and soybeans by the fungal entomopathogen Beauveria bassiana (Ascomycota, Hypocreales)
TLDR
Three inoculation methods are demonstrated in establishing fungal the entomopathogen Beauveria bassiana as an endophyte in tobacco, corn, wheat and soybean and there were significant differences in endophytic colonisation among the different inoculation techniques. Expand
Screening for a culture medium yielding optimal colony growth, zoospore yield and infectivity of different isolates of Leptolegnia chapmanii (Straminipila: Peronosporomycetes)
TLDR
For the cultivation and maintenance of L. chapmanii isolates, the medium of choice among those tested is FORT(agar), as it is both inexpensive to prepare and ensures optimal colony development, extremely high zoospore production, and excellent maintenance of fungal infectivity. Expand
Isolation of Paecilomyces lilacinus (Thom) Samson (Ascomycota: Hypocreales) from the Chagas disease vector, Triatoma infestans Klug (Hemiptera: Reduviidae) in an endemic area in Argentina
TLDR
A survey for entomopathogenic fungi of the Chagas disease vector Triatoma infestans was conducted in two provinces of Argentina from March–December 2003 and resulted in the first record of natural infection caused by P. lilacinus in T. infestan. Expand
Effects of temperature, pH and salinity on the infection of Leptolegnia chapmanii Seymour (Peronosporomycetes) in mosquito larvae.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that the Argentinean isolate of L. chapmanii tolerated a wide range of temperatures, pH, and salinity, suggesting that it has the potential to adapt to a wide variety of mosquito habitats. Expand
Endophytic fungi from selected varieties of soybean (Glycine max L. Merr.) and corn (Zea mays L.) grown in an agricultural area of Argentina.
TLDR
Fungal endophyte colonization in soybean plants was influenced by tissue type and varieties whereas in corn plants only by tissue types, which could be relevant in the search for endophytic fungi isolates that could be of interest in the control of agricultural pests. Expand
Compatibility between entomopathogenic fungi and biorational insecticides in toxicity against Ronderosia bergi under laboratory conditions
TLDR
The use of these biorational insecticides in an IPM program aimed at control of the grasshopper R. bergi could be of value, and did not affect the isolates of the two species of entomopathogenic fungi employed. Expand
Effect of endophytic entomopathogenic fungi on soybean Glycine max (L.) Merr. growth and yield
TLDR
It was demonstrated for the first time that inoculation with B. bassiana promoted the growth and increased the yield of soybean plants under filed conditions, with no adverse effects observed in the inoculated plants. Expand
Screening of Argentine native fungal strains for biocontrol of the grasshopper Tropidacris collaris: relationship between fungal pathogenicity and chitinolytic enzyme activity
TLDR
A principal component analysis indicated that isolate LPSC 1067, obtained from a long-horned grasshopper, would be a potential candidate for T. collaris biocontrol because the strain exhibited the highest mortality, a shorter median lethal time, and a high enzymatic activity and growth rate. Expand
Interactions between the entomopathogenic fungus Beauveria bassiana and the Neotropical predator Eriopis connexa (Coleoptera: Coccinellidae): Implications in biological control of pest
TLDR
Evaluating the compatibility and interaction between E. connexa and the entomopathogenic fungus Beauveria bassiana shows that despite having received a single dose of the fungus in its life cycle, the population parameters of the predator E. bassiana are affected. Expand
Entomopathogenic fungi from Argentina for the control of Schistocerca cancellata (Orthoptera: Acrididae) nymphs: fungal pathogenicity and enzyme activity
TLDR
This is the first time that a wide variability in chitinase, protease and lipase activity as well as in virulence has been reported in a representative sample of different entomopathogenic fungal strains from Argentina. Expand
