This chapter is an update of the chapter which appeared in The Mycota, Vol. X in 2002. Not many novel compounds with nematicidal and insecticidal activities have been described in the meantime. Therefore, we have shifted focus from the chemical diversity of fungal metabolites and their producing organisms towards novel insights into the mode of action and the ecological significance of the compounds, e.g. their role for insect pathogens during colonization of the host.
