Main objectives of the project

  • Assess the diversity and distribution pattern of fungal endophytes in three olive tree cultivars (Galega, Picual and Cobrançosa) with different susceptibilities to olive anthracnose and verticillium wilt.


  • Disclose potential role of fungal endophytes in the mediation of plant defense against both diseases and select the most efficient biocontrol agent.
