Role of fungal statling growth products in inter-specific competition among phylloplane fungi

  • R. K. Upadhyay
  • D. K. Arora


The effect of fungal staling growth products on leaf-inhabiting microfungi, with special reference to a leaf spot pathogenPestalotiopsis funerea Desm. ofEucalyptus globulus Labill. was studied. Results depict that antibiotics produced by competing microfungi caused the phenomenon of mycostasis on the leaf surfaces.
