The literature describing the occurrence, some aspects of the physiology and toxicology of the metabolic products of Hypocrea, Glioc/adium and Trichoderma spp. is reviewed. A list of known metabolites of this group of fungi has been assembled and the common physical propenies of these compounds are given when they have been reported. Such data as have been published on the toxicity of these metabolites is summarised, with particular emphasis on suitable review articles. An attempt is made to provide a comprehensive list of agents, known as potential inhibitors of the growth of these fungi.
