- ... Grasshopper outbreaks cause significant damage to crops and grasslands in US. Chemical control is widely used to suppress these pests but it reduces environmental quality. Biological control of insect pests is an alternative way to reduce the use of chemical insecticides.

- ... Metarhizium is widely recognized as an insect pathogenic fungus but it can also form symbiotic associations with plant roots. Here we assessed root rhizoplane, as well as endophytic colonization in monocots and dicots by ten Metarhizium strains representing species with either narrow or broad insect host ranges, as well as a related endophytic and nematophagous fungus, Pochonia chlamydosporia. In ...
