Abstract: Endophytes are widely present in plants. Endophytic Trichoderma are common endophytic fungi, some of them can promote plant growth, improve plant stress and disease resistance by antagonism, mycoparasitism, producing secondary metabolites, and inducing system resistance in plants. Endophytic Trichoderma received widespread attention in recent years as important biocontrol microbial resource. Recent research advances on the species, distribution and function of endophytic Trichoderma, and the molecular mechanism of interaction between endophytic Trichoderma and their host plants are reviewed in this paper for providing a basis on the utilization of Endophytic Trichoderma as biocontrol factors.

Key words: endophytic Trichoderma, antagonism, mycoparasitism, secondary metabolism, induced resistance
