Fungi are present in the most diverse environments including the interior of plant tissues, living as endophytes without causing apparent damage. These endophytes are producers of secondary metabolites, also known as natural products, such as fungicides. Here, we evaluated the ethyl acetate fractions obtained from endophytic fungi isolated from plants in the genus Begonia. The fractions were submitted to inhibitory test against the plant pathogens Diaporthe phaseolorum and Colletotrichum…

ANTIFUNGAL ACTIVITY OF LEAF EXTRACTS OF POLYALTHIA LONGIFOLIA (SONN.) BENTH. AND HOOK. F. AGAINST RHIZOCTONIA SOLANI
TLDR
Findings in this study confirmed that plant extracts can be used as to develop the plant extract-based bio-formulation to control plant pathogens to reduce the dependence on the synthetic fungicides which are ecological safe and cheap.
EFFECT OF LEAF EXTRACTS OF LAWSONIA INERMIS LINN. ON ALTERNARIA ALTERNATA CAUSED LEAF SPOT DISEASE OF CHILLI
TLDR
Results suggest that Lawsonia inermis plant can be used to develop a bio control agent against Alternaria alternata, and bioactive natural products that may serve as leads in the development of new pharmaceuticals research activities.

TLDR
The results suggest that using host taxonomy and forest type to tailor plant collections, and selecting endophytes from specific orders or families for cultivation, will markedly increase the efficiency and efficacy of discovering bioactive metabolites for particular pharmaceutical targets.

Endophytic fungal diversity and their interaction with plants for agriculture sustainability under stressful condition.
TLDR
The analytical results indicate that the endophytic fungi can confer profound impacts on plant communities by enhancing their growth, increasing their fitness, strengthening their tolerances to abiotic and biotic stresses, enhance defense mechanism and promoting their accumulation of secondary metabolites that provide immunity to the victims.
Bioprospecting highly diverse endophytic Pestalotiopsis spp. with antibacterial properties from Maytenus ilicifolia, a medicinal plant from Brazil.
TLDR
The present study presents a new approach to the study of endophytic fungi of the genus Pestalotiopsis based on a polyphasic approach integrating taxonomic information, morphological traits, RAPD markers, and the sequencing of the ITS1-5.8S-ITS2 of the rDNA.
