Examples of "entomogenous"
Modern farming methods have seen the reduction of cattle-grazing and this has impacted the Horseshoes who previously found that dung attracted insects and sustained
populations, giving their prey a stable population.
While little pest management research has been done on the majority of tarsonemid species, comprehensive studies have been made into the biological and chemical control of the cyclamen mite and the broad mite. Chemical trials demonstrated that endosulfan and dicofol consistently reduced densities of "P. latus" and "S. pallidus", and planting stock can be effectively decontaminated through fumigation with methyl bromide or 1,2-dibromoethane. Three
fungi, "Beauveria bassiana", "Metarhizium anisopliae", and "Paecilomyces fumosoroseus", can effectively manage broad mite infestations, with "B. bassiana" providing the greatest reduction. Predatory phytoseiid mites, in the genus "Neoseiulus", can also successfully control "P. latus" and "S. pallidus" under greenhouse and field conditions.
, entomopathogenic or insect-pathogenic hyphomycetes infect and kill insects (and spiders) and are especially diverse in tropical and subtropical regions, especially in Asia. Most are asexual states of or phylogenetically related to the Ascomycete families, Cordycipitaceae and Ophiocordycipitaceae. Insect hosts are infected by asexual spores, which germinate and grow to fill the host body with mycelium or hyphal bodies, then produce sporulating structures on the insect carcass. They are often found on dead insects under bark or in soil, but some affect insect behaviour ("zombie fungus"), causing infected hosts to climb towards the light, ensuring that air-borne infective spores will be released higher up in the canopy of the forest or meadow. Well-known
hyphomycetes are classified in "Beauveria", "Metarhizium" and "Tolypocladium"; famous anamorphic generic names such as "Akanthomyces", "Gibellula", "Hirsutella", "Hymenostilbe" and "Isaria" are now subsumed in genera formerly considered sexual, such as "Cordyceps", "Ophiocordyceps" and "Torubiella" under fungal single-name nomenclature. Species of "Beauveria" and "Metarhizium" show some promise as biological control agents against pest insects. "Tolypocladium inflatum" was the original source of cyclosporine A, used as a drug to prevent rejection of organ transplants.
Howard had great admiration for Roland Thaxter and Cap Weston. When Howard was an undergraduate at the University of California, Berkeley, he was introduced to the study of zoosporic fungi. During his graduate work at University of California, Berkeley he focused on fungi associated with invertebrates, receiving his doctorate in 1960 for a study of the
fungus "Amoebidium parasiticum" (Protozoan). He published his first paper on "Amoebidium parasiticum" (Protozoan) on "Daphnia" in the journal "Nature" in 1960. After that, he published a number of articles on zoosporic fungi. Additional publications included those on the Trichomycetes, Entomophthorales, "Rubetella inopinata" and "Carouxella scalaris", with J. F. Manier and L. Rioux. He published many articles on the biology of "Coelomomyces".[ From 1970, he did some research on members of the Oomycota, insect parasites in the Zygomycota and Ascomycota, and even delved for a bit into the Basidiomycota with G. A. Escobar, D. E. McCabe and C. W. Harpel.
