Plant-mediated interactions between the entomopathogenic fungus Beauveria bassiana, insect herbivores and a plant pathogen
(Lincoln University, 2016-12-19)
The entomopathogenic fungus Beauveria bassiana can adopt an endophytic lifestyle by colonising a wide array of plant species. Several studies have reported enhanced resistance against insects and plant pathogens from ...
Bio-control of the soil-borne pathogen Rhizoctonia solani of radish (Raphanus sativus L.) by Trichoderma species
(Lincoln University, 2018)
The soil-borne fungus Rhizoctonia solani is an important pathogen of Brassicae crops worldwide, including red vegetable radish (Raphanus sativus). However, the impact of R. solani on New Zealand radish production has not ...
Herbicide ingredients change Salmonella enterica sv. Typhimurium and Escherichia coli antibiotic responses
(Microbiology Society, 2017-12-01)
Herbicides are frequently released into both rural and urban environments. Commercial herbicide formulations induce adaptive changes in the way bacteria respond to antibiotics. Salmonella enterica sv. Typhimurium and ...
Plant mutualisms with rhizosphere microbiota in introduced versus native ranges
(John Wiley & Sons Ltd on behalf of British Ecological Society, 2016-09)
© 2016 The Authors. Journal of Ecology published by John Wiley & Sons Ltd on behalf of British Ecological Society. The performance of introduced plants can be limited by the availability of soil mutualists outside their ...
Transformation of Cyclaneusma minus with green fluorescent protein (GFP) to enable screening of fungi for biocontrol activity
(MDPI AG, 2012)
Cyclaneusma needle-cast has a major impact on the New Zealand forest industry. The causal agent, Cyclaneusma minus, causes most severe damage to 11–20 year-old trees and currently there are no economically viable procedures ...
Transcriptional reprogramming of Arabidopsis thaliana defence pathways by the entomopathogen Beauveria bassiana correlates with resistance against a fungal pathogen but not against insects
(Frontiers Media, 2019-03-29)
The entomopathogenic fungus Beauveria bassiana can adopt an endophytic lifestyle by colonising a wide array of plant species. Beauveria-colonised plants can show enhanced resistance against insects and plant pathogens ...
