Alternaria alternata as a mycoparasite of Rhizopus nigricans

K. N. Pandy, Madhu Mohan, R. C. Gupta


Interaction between Alternaria alternata and Rhizopus nigricans was studied in vitro in dual cultures to examine their antagonistic behaviour. A. alternata parasitised R. nigricans by direct penetration of hyphae, sporangiophores and sporangia. R. nigricans is described here as a new host record for the mycoparasite A. alternata.
