Abstract: Purpose: Plants that are stressed or weakened are more susceptible to disease than healthy plants. An endophytic fungus that has the capability of becoming a latent pathogen may trigger a host-fungus interaction resulting in disease development in Eurasian watermilfoil (Myriophyllum spicatum L.) (EWM) plants when they are subjected to stress. The purpose of the present study was to determine if endophyte infected (E+) plants that are weakened by nutrient stress decline more rapidly and to a greater degree than plants that are endophyte free (E-).
