Endophytic Fungal Diversity in Tropical and Subtropical Plants

Debdulal Banerjee

Abstract

Endophytic fungi are an interesting group of microorganisms associated with the healthy tissues of plants. Endophytic fungal diversity is higher in tropical and subtropical plants than other climatic zones. Most of the reports available on bioactive product formation by endophytic fungi are also from tropical and subtropical climate. Rapid destruction of plants from this region needs special attention to protect endophytic diversity.
