Three grass host species--tall fescue, Festuca arundinacea Schreber; meadow fescue, Festuca pratensis Hudson; and perennial ryegrass, Lolium perenne L.--each infected with a number of different Neotyphodium endophyte isolates, were investigated for their effects on fall armyworm, Spodoptera frugiperda (J.E. Smith). Alkaloid profiles varied among associations. Choice and no-choice tests comparing feeding and early development of S. frugiperda larvae on endophyte-infected and endophyte-free leaf… Expand
Endophyte Isolate and Host Grass Effects on Chaetocnema pulicaria (Coleoptera: Chrysomelidae) Feeding
TLDR
Loline alkaloids seemed to play a role in antixenosis to C. pulicaria, and this phenomenon also has been reported in tests with other insects, and indicates the presence of additional insect-active factors. Expand
Influence of genetic variation in the fungal endophyte of a grass on an herbivore and its parasitoid
TLDR
Results show that N. coenophialum can modify bottom‐up trophic cascades through direct effects on herbivores, as well as indirect effects on a natural enemy of the Herbivores and that the fungus may influence the tritrophic interaction in ways that counterbalance herbivore protection provided by the symbiont. Expand
Effects of Tall Fescue and Its Fungal Endophyte on the Development and Survival of Tawny-Edged Skippers (Lepidoptera: Hesperiidae)
TLDR
Results confirm that tall fescue invasion and dominance may be deteriorating the quality of grassland habitats for native pollinators; however, this effect does not appear to be linked to endophyte infection. Expand
Mollusc herbivory influenced by endophytic clavicipitaceous fungal infections in grasses
TLDR
It is demonstrated that infection of grasses by different isolates of Neotyphodium endophytes differentially influence herbivory by molluscs, reflecting their SM profile. Expand
Contribution of ergot alkaloids to suppression of a grass‐feeding caterpillar assessed with gene knockout endophytes in perennial ryegrass
TLDR
It is suggested that ergot alkaloids can be eliminated from an endophyte of perennial ryegrass while retaining significant insect resistance, and similarity of larval response to the two mutants suggested that ergovaline and/or ergine account for the somewhat greater potency of wild‐type Lp1 compared to the knockouts, whereas simpler ergot aloids contribute little to that added resistance. Expand
Variation in Endophyte-Plant Associations Influence Black Cutworm (Lepidoptera: Noctuidae) Performance and Susceptibility to the Parasitic Nematode Steinernema carpocapsae
TLDR
Variation in endophyte-plant associations can influence black cutworm performance and susceptibility to entomopathogenic nematodes and that susceptibility to the nematode H. bacteriophora may be partially tied to ergot alkaloid levels in the insects' food. Expand
Detrimental and Neutral Effects of a Wild Grass-Fungal Endophyte Symbiotum on Insect Preference and Performance
TLDR
The wild grass— Neotyphodium symbiotum in this study broadens the number of wild E+ grasses available for expanded explorations into the effects of endophyte metabolites on insect herbivory. Expand
Endophyte-Mediated Resistance to Black Cutworm as a Function of Plant Cultivar and Endophyte Strain in Tall Fescue
TLDR
Endophyte haplotypes expressing high levels of N-acetyl norloline and peramine may be of particular importance for developing ‘friendly’ endophyte-enhanced turf and pasture grasses that resist challenging lepidopteran pests, although remaining safe for wildlife and grazing mammals. Expand
Fungal endophytes of native grasses decrease insect herbivore preference and performance
TLDR
The results demonstrate that the mechanisms by which native symbionts deter herbivores are at least as potent as those in model agricultural systems, despite the absence of artificial selection. Expand
Epichloë endophytes of Poa alsodes employ alternative mechanisms for host defense: insecticidal versus deterrence
TLDR
The effects of the two endophytes on survival, feeding preference, and plant damage by the generalist herbivore, Spodoptera frugiperda, independently hosts two species of Epichloë that vary by produced alkaloids, may protect their common host in different ways. Expand

Influence of turfgrass species and tall fescue endophyte on feeding ecology of Japanese beetle and southern masked chafer grubs (Coleoptera : scarabaeidae)
TLDR
This study suggests that antixenosis may not occur in the presence of the stimulus complex in tall fescue roots, and variation in susceptibility of cool-season turfgrasses to white grubs is probably affected more by differences in their ability to tolerate the feeding damage than by their inherent suitability as food.

Response of Plant-Feeding, Predatory, and Soil-Inhabiting Invertebrates to Acremonium Endophyte and Nitrogen Fertilization in Tall Fescue Turf
TLDR
Fertilization of tall fescue probably will not nullify the benefits of endophyte-enhanced resistance, but nitrogen fertilization generally enhances plant quality for herbivores. Expand
Occurrence and impact of pasture mealybug (Balanococcus poae) and root aphid (Aploneura lentisci) on ryegrass (Lolium spp.) with and without infection by Neotyphodium fungal endophytes
TLDR
It is concluded that pasture mealybug are capable of inflicting severe damage to endophyte‐free ryegrass in Canterbury, particularly during dry summer‐autumn periods. Expand
Enhanced resistance to fall armyworm (Lepidoptera: Noctudiae) in Acremonium endophyte-infected turfgrasses
TLDR
The results indicate that endophyte-enhanced resistance varies among and within species of grasses and endophytes and researchers need to be aware of the potential ofendophytes for breeding purposes and as sources of variation in natural populations. Expand
Fungal endophytes of grasses and their effects on an insect herbivore
TLDR
For most grasses, survival and weights of fall armyworm larvae fed infected leaves were significantly lower and larval duration was significantly longer compared to larvae fed uninfected leaves, suggesting resistance to herbivores may provide a selective advantage to endophyte-infected grasses in natural populations.

TLDR
It is found that grasshoppers consumed similar amounts of grasses with high and low infection levels, contrary to the prediction that endophytic fungi deter herbivores. Expand
