Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. An entomopathogenic fungus is a fungus that can act as a parasite of insects and kills or seriously disables them. These fungi usually attach to the external body surface of insects in the form of microscopic spores (usually asexual, mitosporic spores also called conidia). Under permissive conditions of temperature and (usually high) moisture, these spores germinate, grow as hyphae and colonize the insect's cuticle; eventually they bore through it and reach the insects' body cavity (hemocoel).show more
