    • Mycoviral Population Dynamics in Spanish Isolates of the Entomopathogenic Fungus Beauveria bassiana 

      Filippou, Charalampos; Garrido-Jurado, Inmaculada; Meyling, Nicolai V.; Quesada-Moraga, Enrique; Coutts, Robert H.A.; Kotta-Loizou, Ioly (MDPI, 2018)
      The use of mycoviruses to manipulate the virulence of entomopathogenic fungi employed as biocontrol agents may lead to the development of novel methods to control attacks by insect pests. Such approaches are urgently ...
    • A Comparative Nitrogen Balance and Productivity Analysis of Legume and Non-legume Supported Cropping Systems: The Potential Role of Biological Nitrogen Fixation 

      Iannetta, Pietro P.M.; Young, Mark; Bachinger, Johann; Bergkvist, Göran; Doltra, Jordi; López-Bellido Garrido, Rafael J.; Monti, Michele; Pappa, Valentini A.; Reckling, Moritz; Topp, Cairistiona F.E.; Walker, Robin L.; Rees, Robert M.; Watson, Christinie A.; James, Euan K.; Squire, Geoffrey R.; Begg, Graham S. (Frontiers Media, 2016)
      The potential of biological nitrogen fixation (BNF) to provide sufficient N for production has encouraged re-appraisal of cropping systems that deploy legumes. It has been argued that legume-derived N can maintain productivity ...
    • Los hongos entomopatógenos y sus proteínas insecticidas en el control de plagas de insectos 

      Quesada-Moraga, Enrique; Ortiz-Urquiza, A.; Garrido-Jurado, Inmaculada; Muñoz-Ledesma, F.J.; García-Fernández, P.; Santiago-Álvarez, C. (Universidad de Córdoba, 2009)
      El desarrollo de hongos entomopatógenos para el control de plagas de insectos ha experimentado en los últimos años un considerable progreso. El empleo de estos agentes de control biológico presenta numerosas ventajas, ...
    • The Hidden Habit of the Entomopathogenic Fungus Beauveria bassiana: First Demonstration of Vertical Plant Transmission 

      Quesada-Moraga, Enrique; López-Díaz, Cristina; Landa, Blanca B. (Public Libray of Science (PLOS), 2014)
      Beauveria bassiana strain 04/01-Tip, obtained from a larva of the opium poppy stem gall wasp Iraella luteipes (Hymenoptera; Cynipidae), endophytically colonizes opium poppy (Papaver somniferum L.) plants and protects them ...
    • Metarhizium anisopliae Pathogenesis of Mosquito Larvae: A Verdict of Accidental Death 

      Butt, Tariq M.; Greenfield, Bethany P.J.; Greig, Carolyn; Maffeis, Thierry G.G.; Taylor, James W.D.; Piasecka, Justina; Dudley, Ed; Abdulla, Ahmed; Dubovskiy, Ivan M.; Garrido-Jurado, Inmaculada; Quesada-Moraga, Enrique; Penny, Mark W.; Eastwood, Daniel C. (Public Libray of Science (PLOS), 2013)
      Metarhizium anisopliae, a fungal pathogen of terrestrial arthropods, kills the aquatic larvae of Aedes aegypti, the vector of dengue and yellow fever. The fungus kills without adhering to the host cuticle. Ingested conidia ...
