  • Reports recent taxonomic research and DNA sequence analyses on plant-infecting clavicipitaleans
  • Compares morphologic, geographic, and host variations among various clavicipitalean populations
  • Examines key discoveries and compounds obtained in clavicipitalean studies
  • Discusses the impact of the Claviceps species on the quality of crop plants such as rye, wheat, barley, rice, and corn
  • Details challenges encountered in endoyphyte utilization and assessment
  • Considers the use of clavicipitalean fungi for control of arthropod pests
This reference analyzes the ecology, evolution, genetics, physiology, and taxonomy of this diverse group of fungi for identification of common biological, biochemical, and genetic features and discovery of potential medical and agricultural applications. It traces and reconstruct the evolution of various host-endoparasite systems and studies recent taxonomic research and DNA sequence analyses on plant-infecting clavicipitaleans. Providing a holistic view of the entire clavicipitalean family, the book compares morphologic, geographic, and host variations among various clavicipitalean populations and examines key discoveries and compounds obtained in clavicipitalean studies.
