Data from: Plant host traits mediated by foliar fungal symbionts and secondary metabolites

Christine Hawkes & Moriah Sandy
Fungal symbionts living inside plant leaves (“endophytes”) can vary from beneficial to parasitic, but the mechanisms by which the fungi affect the plant host phenotype remain poorly understood. Chemical interactions are likely the proximal mechanism of interaction between foliar endophytes and the plant, as individual fungal strains are often exploited for their diverse secondary metabolite production. Here, we go beyond single strains to examine commonalities in how 16 fungal endophytes shift plant phenotypic traits such...
