DOI: https://doi.org/10.1016/j.biocontrol.2020.104329 Interpretive Summary: In this research we found that a beneficial fungus normally found in corn plants can help to control Fusarium head blight (FHB). FHB is a devastating fungal disease of wheat and barley worldwide. Grain harvested from infected crops can be contaminated with harmful toxins produced by the fungal pathogen. These toxins devalue the grain and make it unsafe for eating. A potential method to control FHB is the use of beneficial fungi that naturally live inside the plant tissues and produce compounds that inhibit the growth of other fungi or increase plant immunity. In this study, Sarocladium zeae, a fungus known to produce antifungal compounds, was tested for its ability to colonize wheat. Strains of S. zeae successfully colonized internal wheat organs and survived within the plant through its life cycle. Wheat plants with S. zeae were more resistant to FHB. This fungus is a promising candidate for environmentally friendly ...
The introduction of biological control agents to new environments requires host specificity tests to estimate potential non-target impacts of a prospective agent. Currently, the approach is conservative, and is based on physiological host ranges determined under captive rearing conditions, without consideration for ecological factors that may influence realized host range. We use historical data and current field data from introduced parasitoids that attack an endemic Lepidoptera species in Hawaii to validate a probabilistic risk assessment (PRA) procedure for non-target impacts. We use data on known host range and habitat use in the place of origin of the parasitoids to determine whether contemporary levels of non-target parasitism could have been predicted using PRA. Our results show that reasonable predictions of potential non-target impacts may be made if comprehensive data are available from places of origin of biological control agents, but scant data produce poor predictions. Using apparent
Sheng Man wore an uncomfortable smile, How would I know, I have never met him?. Ren Shao continued, Sheng Lian is not capable at all, yet he relied on his relationship with the Sheng family to join a branch as an executive. Some time ago, this branch company of his seemed to have lost a lot of business.. Furthermore, Sheng Lians son is not doing any better. He only knows how to eat, drink, and have fun. I remember he also has a daughter. Shes probably also just like them. The whole family are just leeches.. When Sheng Man heard how Ren Shao was talking about her family, her anger could no longer be suppressed, Is that all you have to talk about? Is it really that fun to gossip behind other peoples backs?. Ren Shao was taken aback by Sheng Mans sudden anger, slowly her temper flared up as well. Like Sheng Man, they were spoiled by their families since they were children. How could they stand being yelled at by others?. Ren Shao also raised her voice louder, What do you mean? He has ...

Sirex noctilio is a major pest to Pinus spp. and threat to the Forestry industry in the Southern Hemisphere. The varying level of efficacy of its primary biological control agent, Deladenus siricidicola, is also of serious concern. There is a need to better understand the diversity of both the pest and its biological control agent, as one of the factors that could influence this biological control system. One of the short‐comings is that molecular markers did not exist to study the population diversity of the nematode and wasp. As part of this study it was illustrated how next generation sequencing (454 pyrosequencing) can be used to enhance microsatellite marker discovery tools, and produce a more robust, rapid and economical tool for the development of these markers. The developed markers for D. siricidicola and S. noctilio proved to be highly efficient in characterizing the population diversity of both of these organisms.It was shown that the populations of D. siricidicola in the Southern ...
Term and definition not yet included in the Glossary of Phytosanitary Terms.. OUTLINE OF REQUIREMENTS. A pest free area is an area in which a specific pest does not occur as demonstrated by scientific evidence and in which, where appropriate, this condition is being officially maintained.. The establishment and use of a PFA by an NPPO provides for the export of plants, plant products and other regulated articles from the country in which the area is situated (exporting country) to another country (importing country) without the need for application of additional phytosanitary measures when certain requirements are met. Thus, the pest-free status of an area may be used as the basis for the phytosanitary certification of plants, plant products and other regulated articles with respect to the stated pest(s). It also provides, as an element in pest risk assessment, the confirmation on a scientific basis of the absence of a stated pest from an area. The PFA is then an element in the justification of ...

Biological Trace Element Research. 148(3):356-362. Interpretive Summary: Dietary iron is an extremely important nutrient required by animals to, among many other things, fight off fatal infections. But pest insects also require iron and may actually benefit from iron biofortification intended for humans and livestock. Therefore it is important to determine whether iron levels present in crops help or hinder the usefulness of an insect virus used as a biological control agent for an insect pest. Very little is presently known about the iron requirements of pest insects, thus we conducted the first study of blood and tissue iron levels in budworm caterpillars following infection with two viral biological control agents. Viral infection of caterpillars greatly increased the blood levels of iron, especially in the late stages of infection. Trace ...

In order to make potatoes more resistant, researchers want to coat the seeds of the nightshade plants with beneficial fungi and thus help them grow.
The mechanical force that a single fungal cell or bacterial colony exerts on a plant cell may seem vanishingly small, but it plays a key role in setting up some of the most fundamental symbiotic relationships in biology. In fact, it may not be too much of a stretch to say that plants may have never moved onto land without the ability to respond to the touch of beneficial fungi, according to a new study led by Dr. Jean-Michel Ané, a professor of agronomy at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Many people have studied how roots progress through the soil, when fairly strong stimuli are applied to the entire growing root, says Dr. Ané, who just published a review of touch in the interaction between plants and microbes in the August 2014 issue of Current Opinion in Plant Biology. We are looking at much more localized, tiny stimuli on a single cell that is applied by microbes. Specifically, Dr. Ané, Dr. Dhileepkumar Jayaraman, a postdoctoral researcher in agronomy, and Dr. Simon Gilroy, a ...

There are mixed opinions about the viability of dead wood in a garden - some say it is a vector for honey fungus - but I prefer to take the risk. Healthy trees and shrubs will not be prone if they are kept in good condition and there are plenty of other beneficial fungi that need a place to call their own.. Our neighbour down at the farm believes in the same principle. From time to time one of his elderly poplars has come crashing across the brook that divides us.

A device and method of placement of a chronic micro-catheter is shown that allows effective guiding of micro-catheters through a host catheter that is later removable while leaving the micro-catheter implanted in place within the patient. The novel configuration allows the micro-catheter to be completely radially enclosed during insertion, and still allows the host catheter to be removed, leaving the micro-catheter behind. Additionally, the configuration allows several micro-catheters to be placed at any number of depths and orientations while still using a minimally invasive host catheter.
