Abstract:My experiment investigated the factors that inhibited Penicillium growth (on the medium formulated by Shimazu and Sato, 1996) but allowed growth of two entomopathogenic fungi. Fungal growth on media with different pH, copper and crystal violet concentrations was tested. The combined effect of these three factors was important in this selective medium. This selective medium was tested successfully with a mixed fungal inoculum.
