Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


Many of the common grasses in woodlands and meadows, pastures, lawns, roadsides, and sport fields are aided in their survival by inconspicuous fungal symbionts, termed endophytes. The Epichloë spp. and Neotyphodium spp. (asexual counterparts of Epichloë spp.) are grass endophytes belonging to the fungal family Clavicipitaceae (phylum Ascomycota, order Hypocreales).
