Are There any Risks in Using Entomopathogenic Fungi for Pest Control, with Particular Reference to the Bioactive Metabolites of Metarhizium, Tolypocladium and Beauveria species?
TLDR
This review summarizes data on specific secondary metabolites produced by the important genera Beauveria, Metarhizium and Tolypocladium and methods and strategies are suggested which could standardize the risk assessment of fungal biological control agents.
DEGENERATION OF ENTOMOGENOUS FUNGI
TLDR
This chapter will examine two attributes of degenerate cultures: attenuation of virulence and phenotypic degeneration and briefly review some of the factors that could explain these phenomena.
