Diaphornia citri Kuwayama (Hemiptera: Liviidae) is a phytophagous
insect that transmits 'Candidatus' Liberibacter asiaticus, a Gram-negative [alpha]-protobacterium (Capoor et al.
Objective: FlyHigh studies underexplored phytophagous
and saprophagous flies and geophyte plants aiming to obtaining ecological and evolutionary data that will be used to elucidate ecological features of fly species that could be exploited for artificial mass production of flies.
Depending on diet (saprophagous, phytophagous
or predative), soil invertebrates are closely linked to each other as well as to microorganisms, plants and soil.
Marking of native phytophagous
insects with rubidium: a proposed technique.
The cotton leafworm, Spodoptera littoralis is considered as one of the most serious and destructive phytophagous
Lepidopterous insect-pests in Egypt, not only for cotton plants but also for more than 70 cultivated field crops and vegetables [7,2].
To understand the effect of greenhouse gases on the phytophagous
Chionaspis salicis bi-weekly observations were made at the Aspen Free-air Carbon Enrichment site in northern Wisconsin.
Number and abundance of phytophagous
insects of a host are spatio-temporally limited (Lawton, Symp.
Hundreds of species of phytophagous
insects occur on pecan trees and many can cause damage (McWhorter et al.
Host switching of exotic parasites to naive hosts via ecological fitting in invaded areas is very common across many taxa, including phytophagous
insects and their host plants (reviewed in Brooks et al.
Often abundant in most terrestrial habitats, members of the Orthoptera are considered one of the most important groups of phytophagous
Most species of Pilophorus are considered predators of aphids and other Sternorrhyncha found on a wide range of conifers and deciduous trees and shrubs (Schuh and Schwartz, 1988; Wheeler, 2001), whereas members of the genus Sthenaridea are found primarily on grasses and sedges where they may be both predatory and phytophagous
Species of sucking insects such as aphids, scale, leafhoppers, whitefly and thrips and several species of phytophagous
mites are not able to extract amino acids from proteins for their own use.
