An Appraisal of The Use of Axillary Buds of Grasses as Clonal Material for Inoculation with Neotyphodium Endophytes
When assessing the interactions between Neotyphodium endophytes and their grass hosts it is useful to have access to clonal plant material. A range of endophyte isolates can be used to inoculate clonal material, this allows comparisons to be made between the endophytes without the complication of host plant genotype effects.
