Direct classification of related species of fungal endophytes (Epichloë spp.) using visible and near-infrared spectroscopy and multivariate analysis.


The aim of this work was to investigate the potential of visible and near-infrared (Vis-NIR) reflectance spectroscopy for the classification of three morphologically similar species of fungal endophytes of grasses. Vis-NIR spectra (400-2498 nm) from 34 isolates of Epichloë sylvatica, 32 of Epichloë typhina and 38 of Epichloë festucae were recorded directly… (More)
