Contains 73 papers from a May 1997 symposium on mutualistic endophytes in grasses, with current reviews and short papers of basic and applied research on the ecology and systematics of grass-endophyte associations, commercial uses of endophytes for livestock and turf industries, the pathophysiology of toxicoses in livestock, cellular and molecular techniques in investigative research, and current farm practices used to avert or ameliorate livestock toxicosis syndromes. Specific subjects include seasonal incidence of chloropid flies in tall fescue, immunological detection of the "Neotyphodium"-like endophyte of annual ryegrass, solid state NMR spectra of tall fescue seed, and fescue toxicosis in horses.
