Context-dependent associations, symbiont genomes, symbiosis, yeast-like symbionts. Ecology Letters () – In this book we shall discuss only [animal hosts and plant guests] [this] includes the extraordinarily widespread and often fantastically complex bacterial and fungal symbiosisCited by: Insect-Fungal Associations: Ecology and Evolution by Vega, F.e.; Blackwell, M. (eds) at Pemberley Books.

Understanding of the ecology of fungal entomopathogens has vastly increased since the early ’s, but remains challenging. The often complex interactions between pathogen and host are being unravelled through eloquent research and the importance of the often subtle interactions, in determining the success or failure of biological control, cannot be underplayed. Estimates of the number of arthropod species vary between 1,, and 10 million, accounting for over 80% of all known living animal species. One arthropod subgroup, insects, is the most species-rich member of all ecological guilds in land and freshwater environments (1). As arthropods were emerging as the dominant animals they are today, fungi were also colonizing the by:

There is a significant and increasing interest in using fungi as biocontrol agents for insect pests in agricultural systems, and also a growing interest in the basic biology of insect-fungal associations from the perspective of parasitism, symbiosis, and infection.

It provides much information and rich food for thought whether or not its readers regard themselves to be specialists in any aspect of insect-fungal associations. The Fungal Infection Cycle and Host Specificity. Entomopathogenic fungi recognize and infect insects through the spore adhesion and formation of appressoria that penetrate the cuticle ().After reaching the hemocoel (body cavity) of an insect, fungal filaments will switch into yeast-like cells that undergo budding for rapid propagation and counteract the immune response of the hosts ().

In contrast to the many observations of facultative insect–fungal associations that dominate the literature, there are intriguing cases of obligate fungal associations.

For instance, there are YLS that occur in the hemocoel (extracellularly) of four aphid genera in the Cerataphidini (Ascomycota: Pezizomycotina: Sordariomycetes: Hypocreales).Cited by: Complexity of Insect–Fungal Associations: Exploring the Influence of Microorganisms on Attine Ant–Fungus Symbiosis, M.
