At the most basic level, endophyte simply means the location of an organism, with “endo” means “inside” and “phyte” means “plants”. Therefore, endophyte refers to organisms that live within plants (Wilson, 1995). Fungi and bacteria are the most common organisms associated with the term endophyte.

The ecological significance


Endophytic organisms associated with plants are varied and complex. Endophytic microbes occupy a relatively privileged niche within plant and usually contribute to plant health. Some groups of endophytic microorganisms have been believed to be mutualists that protect plants against biotic stresses. Co-evolution may exist between endophytes and their host in resist to environmental stresses. During the last two decades endophytes have been targeted as valuable sources of new bioactive compounds (Endophytic Microbes, 2009, Tadych).
