They are members of two sister orders in the fungal Kingdom, the Hypocreales and Microascales, where intrinsic multi-resistance is prevalent. Intrinsic resistance is also common in the Mucorales, belonging to lower fungi. This is demonstrated in the Atlas of Clinical Fungi, which shows the medically relevant species in their phylogenetic coherence Read more The ultimate benchtool for diagnostics All currently fungi proven infectious agents are full described, many with beautiful photo-plates in full color and with informative line-drawings. Ample information is provided on pathogenicity, biosafety levels and antifungal susceptibility, supported by over references.

Author by : Helen E. The often complex interactions between pathogen and host are being unravelled through eloquent research and the importance of the often subtle interactions, in determining the success or failure of biological control, cannot be underplayed. The realm of ecology is vast and deciphering insect-fungal pathogen interactions within an ecological context will take us on voyages beyond our imagination.

This book brings together the work of renowned scientists to provide a synthesis of recent research on the ecology of fungal entomopathogens exploring host-pathogen dynamics from the context of biological control and beyond.

The focus of her research is insect community interactions with particular emphasis on the effects of environmental change. She has been working on the ecological interactions between fungal entomopathogens and their hosts for 15 years; this continues to be a source of fascination. She has been an associate editor of BioControl since He has studied entomopathogenic fungi for just over 20 years.

He has particular interests in entomopathogenic fungi as biocontrol agents of horticultural crops, fungal physiology and ecology, and the pathogens of honeybees. In addition to this research, he has been extensively involved in the review and revision of the regulations for registration of microbial control agents and has addressed regulatory and safety issues at the international level.

Judith K. She leads research on the ecology of fungal entomopathogens, to elucidate their role in population regulation and community structure and to inform biological control strategies. Specifically: intraguild interactions; the relationships between guild diversity, habitat diversity and ecosystem function; pathogen-induced host behavioural change. Eric Wajnberg is a population biologist specialising in behavioural ecology, statistical modelling and population genetics.

He is also an expert in biological control, with more than 20 years experience of working with insect parasitoids. He has been the Editor in Chief of BioControl since Fernando E.

He conducts research on biological methods to control the coffee berry borer, the most important insect pest of coffee throughout the world.



These fungi usually attach to the external body surface of insects in the form of microscopic spores usually asexual, mitosporic spores also called conidia. After some time the insect is usually killed sometimes by fungal toxins , and new propagules spores are formed in or on the insect if environmental conditions are again right. High humidity is usually required for sporulation. Groups[ edit ] Cordyceps fungi are parasitoids of various arthropod species. Here, a wasp is parasitized by the fungus Cordyceps. The entomopathogenic fungi include taxa from several of the main fungal groups and do not form a monophyletic group. Related fungi attack and kill other invertebrates e.
