Predacious activity of Arthrobotrys spp isolates on infective Cooperia punctata larvae
Keywords:Arthrobotrys spp, Fungi, Cooperia punctata, Biological control
AbstractLaboratory experiments were performed in order to investigate the capacity of isolates from the predacious fungi Arthrobotrys musiformis (isolate 3), A. conoides (isolate A) and A. robusta (isolates B and E) to trap and kill infective Cooperia punctata larvae. Two groups were formed for each isolate: group 1, fungi and infective larvae and group 2, infective larvae (control). There were statistical differences (p<0.05) between the predacious activity of one isolate of A. robusta (isolate E) when compared with the other isolates of Arthrobotrys spp (isolates A, B and 3). No statistical difference (p>;0.05) was found between the isolate E and the control. This indicates that there can be an existing variability within a fungus species or genus concerning the predation of infective C. punctata larvae.
