Abstract/Contents:"The epichlo√ę endophytes (fungal genera Epichlo√ę and Neotyphodium) are symbionts of many temperate pasture grasses, and are particularly important in Festuca and Lolium species. Many epichloae are known to protect host grasses against a wide range of insects, but some of the anti-insect alkaloids that they produce can negatively affect the health and reproduction of livestock. Here I review the evolutionary relationships and origins of Epichlo√ę and Neotyphodium species, and what is known of the biosynthetic pathways and genetics of protective alkaloids that they produce."
