Scholarcy highlights

  • Endophytic fungi are rich in orchids and have great impacts on their host plants. 53 endophytes were isolated, respectively, from roots and stems of Dendrobium species
  • All the fungi were identified by way of morphological and/or molecular biological methods. 30 endophytic fungi in D. devonianum were categorized into 11 taxa and 23 fungal endophytes in D. thyrsiflorum were grouped into 11 genera, respectively
  • Fusarium was the dominant species of the two Dendrobium species in common
  • Out of the fungal endophytes isolated from D. devonianum and D. thyrsiflorum, Phoma displayed strong inhibitory activity against pathogens
  • Fusarium isolated from the two Dendrobium species was effective against the pathogenic bacterial as well as fungal pathogens
  • We would like to thank Dr Youxin Wang for carefully reviewing the manuscript
