Dynamics of initial colonization of nonconserved perennial ryegrass by anaerobic fungi in the bovine rumen.

Abstract

Anaerobic fungi (Neocallimastigales) are active degraders of fibrous plant material in the rumen. However, only limited information is available relating to how quickly they colonize ingested feed particles. The aim of this study was to determine the dynamics of initial colonization of forage by anaerobic fungi in the rumen and the impact of different… (More)
