Feeding damage by Bagrada hilaris (Hemiptera: Pentatomidae) and impact on growth and chlorophyll content of Brassicaceous plant species.
Brassicaceous plants are characterized by a pronounced metabolic flux toward sinapate, produced by the shikimate/ phenylpropanoid pathway, which is converted into a broad spectrum of O-ester conjugates.
Life table of the diamondback moth, Plutella xylostella (L.) (Lepidoptera: Plutellidae) on five cultivated brassicaceous host plants.
However, generally these studies were carried out using cultivated plants of Brassicaceae and studies regarding the use of Brassicaceous weeds are scarce.
Role of native soil biology in Brassicaceous seed meal-induced weed suppression.
Raylessness at the beginning of secondary growth, yielding to development of rays thereafter, was observed in the brassicaceous species Cheiranlhus mutabilis, Lepidium fremontii, Matthiola maderensis Lowe, Parolinia ornata, Sinapidendron sp.
Whether most pollination systems are generalized or specialized is still debated (Waser et al., 1996; Johnson and Steiner, 2000; Vazquez et al., 2009) but studies that examine plants in different populations and in the same population over time find that multiple insects act as pollinators to some extent (Herrera, 1988; Brunet, 2009), and other brassicaceous species have been found to have generalized pollination systems (Gomez and Zamora, 1999; Gomez et al., 2009).
