A model system using insects to vector Fusarium tumidum for biological control of gorse (Ulex europaeus)
(Lincoln University, 2007)
The overall objective of this study was to test the hypothesis that insects can vector F. tumidum conidia to infect gorse plants with the aim of developing an alternative approach to mycoherbicide delivery to control weeds. ...
Microbial population and diversity on the exoskeletons of four insect species associated with gorse (Ulex europaeus L.)
(Wiley on behalf of Australian Entomological Society, 2008-11)
Fungi and bacteria on the external surfaces of four gorse-associated insect species: gorse seed weevil Apion ulicis Förster (Coleoptera: Apionidae), light brown apple moth Epiphyas postvittana Walker (Lepidoptera: Tortricidae), ...
Factors influencing pathogenicity of Fusarium tumidum on gorse (Ulex europaeus)
(Taylor & Francis, 2008-09-26)
Factors promoting pathogenicity of Fusarium tumidum on gorse (Ulex europaeus) were determined to develop a novel strategy for delivering this potential mycoherbicide using insects as vectors of inoculum. Fusarium tumidum ...
