Cladosporium cladosporioides is a fungal plant pathogen that affects wheat.[1] It is the source of the series of chemical compounds known as calphostins.[2][3]

Falcarindiol (cis-heptadeca-1,9-diene-4,6-diyne-3,8-diol) is a polyacetylene found in carrot roots. This compound shows antifungal activity towards C. cladosporioides.[4]
