Endophytic fungi from Dracaena cambodiana and Aquilaria sinensis and their antimicrobial activity
Single mycelium method was used to isolate endophytic fungi from surface-sterilized tissues of two medicinal plants. Of the 300 isolates recovered, 172 were from Dracaena cambodiana and 128 from
Endophytic fungi assemblages from 10 Dendrobium medicinal plants (Orchidaceae)
Tropical epiphytic orchids appear to vary in degree of host specificity in their endophytic fungi, and investigation of fungal composition in host plants is the first step toward elucidating the relationship endophyte-therapeutic content of herbal medicine.
In situ seed baiting techniques in Dendrobium officinale Kimuraet Migo and Dendrobium nobile Lindl. : the endangered Chinese endemic Dendrobium (Orchidaceae)
The new in situ seed baiting method using seed packets to assess germination of orchid species within soil provides a means of locating, collecting, and identifying specific fungi that are involved
Diversity and Taxonomy of Endophytic Xylariaceous Fungi from Medicinal Plants of Dendrobium (Orchidaceae)
Findings implied that different host plants in the same habitats exhibit a preference and selectivity for their fungal partners, and these xylariaceous isolates may be important sources for the future screening of new natural products and drug discovery.
Species Recognition and Cryptic Species in the Tuber indicum Complex
This study combined five years of field investigation in China with morphological study and DNA sequences analyses of 131 Tuber specimens to show that T. indicum and T. pseudoexcavatum are the same species.
Isolation and Identification of Endophytic Fungi in Roots of Nine Holcoglossum Plants (Orchidaceae) Collected from Yunnan, Guangxi, and Hainan Provinces of China
This is the first report concerning endophytic fungi from Holcoglossum plants (Orchidaceae), suggesting that endophytics fungi in Holcogslossums plants are very abundant.
Interaction between an isolate of dark-septate fungi and its host plant Saussurea involucrata
The present study is the first report hitherto on DSE fungi in S. involucrata, and shows no profound effects of endophyte EF-M on plant root development, but significant differences were detected in plant height and shoot dry weight between the treatments.
Diversity and Antimicrobial and Plant-Growth-Promoting Activities of Endophytic Fungi in Dendrobium loddigesii Rolfe
A great diversity of endophytic fungi in D. loddigesii was first confirmed in a considerable proportion of antimicrobial isolates, and two endophytes exhibited the ability to enhance plant growth although their activities were influenced by the growth media.
