The effects of the endophytic fungus Acremonium starii on feeding and oviposition of the Argentine stem weevil






Proceedings of the Forty Fourth New Zealand Weed and Pest Control Conference: 181-184

The effects of the endophytic fungus Acremonium starii on feeding and oviposition of the Argentine stem weevil

The effects of Acremonium starii infection in Bromus anomalus on feeding and oviposition by adults of the curculionid Listronotus bonariensis were studied in the laboratory. In choice tests, weevils preferred healthy plants for feeding and oviposition.
