Symbiotic fungal endophytes control insect host–parasite interaction webs

  title={Symbiotic fungal endophytes control insect host–parasite interaction webs},
  author={Marina Omacini and Enrique J. Chaneton and Claudio M. Ghersa and Christine B. M{\"u}ller},
Symbiotic microorganisms that live intimately associated with terrestrial plants affect both the quantity and quality of resources, and thus the energy supply to consumer populations at higher levels in the food chain. Empirical evidence on resource limitation of food webs points to primary productivity as a major determinant of consumer abundance and trophic structure. Prey quality plays a critical role in community regulation. Plants infected by endophytic fungi are known to be chemically… CONTINUE READING
