Understanding „fungal behaviour“ – The excretion of organic acids is an essential property of fungal organisms involving many parts of metabolism. In a recently finished project of the Austrian Science Fund three of these parts - adenine and pyridine nucleotides, alternative respiration, and the plasma membrane H+-ATPase – were studied simultaneously in Penicillium ochrochloron using chemostat culture with different nutrient limitations.

Hermann Strasser talks about the use of his biocontrol agent Melocont® Pilzgerste to reduce the cockchafer population in infested areas of East-, North- and South Tyrol. Thanks to the excellent cooperation between the University, Land Tirol, Landwirtschaftskammer and Maschinenring this in the 1990s initiated pilot project was a huge success.
