Reduced parasitism of a leaf-mining moth on trees with high infection frequencies of an endophytic fungus

  title={Reduced parasitism of a leaf-mining moth on trees with high infection frequencies of an endophytic fungus},
  author={Ralph W. Preszler and Eric S. Gaylord and William J Boecklen},
We investigated relationships between endophytic fungi and a leaf-mining moth, Phyllonorycter sp., along an elevational gradient from 2255 to 2895 m. The fungi and moth larvae inhabit leaves of Quercus gambelii. Fungal frequencies and larval densities varied with elevation. However, larval densities were not associated with the frequencies of infection by endophytic fungi. Survival of larvae was positively associated with the most dominant fungus, Gnomonia cerastis, owing to reduced parasitism… CONTINUE READING
