These chapters supply updated info on nematophagous fungi, rather these of the Orbiliaceae in Ascomycota, whose asexual states produce nematode-trapping units. The authors think about fungal-nematode interactions, fossil fungi, the biodiversity, ecology and geographical distribution of nematode-trapping fungi, and their power use in biocontrol of nematodes, all in detail.
Nematode-trapping fungi with adhesive or mechanical hyphal traps are the focus of this e-book which starts with an summary of the information on nematode-trapping fungi, together with their taxonomy, phylogeny and evolution. next chapters extend upon the tools and methods used to check those interesting fungi. Keys for genera of Arthrobotrys, Drechslerella and Dactylellina, which come with all stated species of predatory orbiliaceous fungi are awarded and diverse species from those genera are morphologically defined and illustrated.
The ecology of nematode-trapping fungi is expertly provided: their incidence and habitats, their geographical and seasonal distribution and the consequences of soil stipulations and nematode density on their distribution all characteristic among the suitable themes.
Further chapters study using nematode-trapping fungi in organic keep watch over and the authors think of nematicidal actions intimately, exploring the numerous compounds from fungi that function in nematicidal actions and naturally worthwhile paths for additional learn in this topic.
This is a hugely informative and punctiliously provided e-book, offering medical perception for students with an curiosity in fungi and in organic regulate of nematodes.
