Abstract. A persistent paradigm in insect pathology is one that relates the insect host to certain genetic groups of insect-pathogenic fungi. This paradigm assumes that the genotype of an insect-pathogenic fungus coevolves with a certain taxon of insect host that it infects. The insect-pathogenic fungus Beauveria bassiana shows a wide host range and is considered to be a facultative insect pathogen. In this study, a population genetics analysis of B. bassiana from forested and agricultural… CONTINUE READING
