AbstractMany grass species are in symbiosis with Epichloë fungal endophytes. Infected plants are known to contain several mycotoxins and three of these are particularly important in Lolium perenne: Lolitrem B is a tremorgenic compound responsible for ryegrass staggers, a toxic syndrome affecting mainly sheep. Ergovalineis an ergopeptine alkaloid causing various diseases in cattle, like fescue-foot and fescue toxicosis. Peramineis an alkaloid toxic for insects but not for mammals. Objective: To analyse the variability in alkaloids content of a heterogeneous set of Lolium perenne plants from natural grasslands, infected with different morphotypes of Epichloë endophytes.
