Herbivorous mammal dung supports a large variety of fimicolous fungi and the number of new genera and species is constantly increasing. Dung is a complex ecosystem and to win the struggle for life, these fungi produce a plethora of bioactive secondary metabolites to compete with other organisms. Fimicolous fungi and their bioactive metabolites are mostly evaluated for a possible use in medicine. Very little information is available about their possible exploitation in agriculture against plant… Expand

TLDR
The ecology of dung-inhabiting fungi is introduced, with particular emphasis on the production of antibiotic compounds as a means to compete with other microorganisms. Expand
Marine-Derived Fungi: A Promising Source of Halo Tolerant Biological Control Agents against Plant Pathogenic Fungi
TLDR
Marinederived fungi possess exploitable antagonistic activities against plant pathogenic fungi through antibiosis, competition for nutrients and space and halo tolerance, and the results from this study showed their potential as novel BCAs for supporting crop production under climatic changes in the future. Expand
Fusaproliferin, Terpestacin and Their Derivatives Display Variable Allelopathic Activity Against Some Ascomycetous Fungi
TLDR
This study represents the first report of these secondary metabolites produced by C. nipigonensis and N. virgineus able to reduce the growth of Alternaria brassicicola, Botrytis cinerea and Fusarium graminearum in a variable extent strongly dependent from chemical modifications and test fungi. Expand
A polyphasic contribution to the knowledge of Auxarthron (Onygenaceae)
TLDR
The analysis of ITS nrDNA sequences suggests that an extensive phylogenetic revision of the genus Auxarthron is necessary, and a preliminary evaluation of the antagonistic properties of A. umbrinum and A. concentricum against phytopathogenic fungi has been performed. Expand
Phytotoxins produced by pathogenic fungi of agrarian plants
TLDR
Treats of phytotoxins produced by fungi responsible of heavy diseases of important agrarian crops, including legumes, cereals, fruit trees, vegetables and crops for oil seed production are reported. Expand
Preharvest application of beneficial fungi as a strategy to prevent postharvest mycotoxin contamination: A review
TLDR
An overview of the possible applications of beneficial fungi in the preharvest of cereals, grapes and apples, in order to control the attack of these crops by important mycotoxigenic plant pathogens such as Fusarium, Aspergillus and Penicillium spp. Expand
In vivo testing of antagonistic fungi against Alternaria brassicicola causing Chinese kale black spot disease
TLDR
T. flavus Bodhi001 could provide protection for Chinese kale, and is a promising biological control agent against A. brassicicola, according to the results of this study. Expand
Potential application of a marine-derived fungus, Talaromyces tratensis KUFA 0091 against rice diseases
TLDR
The in vitro results showed that among the tested pathogens, T. tratensis KUFA 0091 significantly affected the activity of Alternaria padwickii and Fusarium moniliforme. Expand
Efficacy of fungicides on Hymenoscyphus fraxineus and their potential for control of ash dieback in forest nurseries
TLDR
During two field tests in nurseries, it was found out that tebuconazole (triazole), trifloxystrobin and kresoxim-methyl (strobilurins) and mancozeb (dithiocarbamate) were significantly effective against H. fraxineus. Expand
Microbial Resistance Due to the Use ofAntimicrobials in Livestock and Agriculture
TLDR
There is an urgent need to control the use of antimicrobials in animal and vegetable food products in order to find new agents that are less able to develop resistance. Expand

Production of sordarin and related metabolites by the coprophilous fungus Podospora pleiospora in submerged culture and in its natural substrate.
TLDR
Sordarin-type natural products are synthesized by P. pleiospora at sufficiently high concentrations to account for antibiosis against yeasts, but not against filamentous fungi. Expand
Coprophilous fungi: antibiotic discovery and functions in an underexplored arena of microbial defensive mutualism.
TLDR
The well-characterized diversity of dung fungi offers accessible systems for dissecting the function of antibiotics and for exploring fungal genomes for new antibiotics in the genomes of Podospora anserina and Sordaria macrospora. Expand
Antiamoebins, myrocin B and the basis of antifungal antibiosis in the coprophilous fungus Stilbella erythrocephala (syn. S. fimetaria).
TLDR
It is concluded that antiamoebins are responsible for antibiosis in dung colonized by S. erythrocephala. Expand
Studies on three rare coprophilous plectomycetes from Italy
TLDR
The Italian collection of C. nipigonensis from canid dung is compared with the original strain from wolf, and its epidermoid peridial tissue is regarded as one of the main morphological differentiating features from Pseudeurotium ovale. Expand
Diversity and occurrence of coprophilous fungi
TLDR
The usefulness of studying the fungi of the dung microcosm as a means of rapid biodiversity assessment is considered, by comparing the results with those of a similar, but smaller, study 30 years earlier, and by examining the diversity of a sample from a subjectively poor habitat in Morocco. Expand
A comparative study of Neogymnomyces virgineus, a new keratinolytic species from dung, and its relationships with the Onygenales
TLDR
The keratinolytic ability of this species, associated with a Chrysosporium anamorph and a sexual state of appendiculate reticuloperidia and oblate ascospores, allows it to be accomodated in Onygenaceae. Expand
Sporminarins A and B: Antifungal Metabolites from a Fungicolous Isolate of Sporormiella minimoides
TLDR
Cultures of a fungicolous isolate of Sporormiella minimoides afforded two new polyketide metabolites which are named sporminarins A and B, which exhibited significant antifungal activity against Aspergillus flavus. Expand
