(Cecidomyiidae): Classification and biology.
The gall midges
(Diptera: Cecidomyiidae) of Mikania glomerata (Asteraceae) in southeastern Brazil.
The gall midges
(Diptera, Cecidomyiidae) from three restingas of Rio de Janeiro State, Brazil.
Damaging effect of two species of gall midges
(Diptera: Cecidomyiidae) have been investigated on Castanopsis hystrix Miq.
The sections cover root and stem feeders, stem borers, rice gall midges
, leafhoppers and planthoppers, foliage feeders, panicle feeders, and integrated pest management for rice.
In addition to the pygmy locust, Dr Heads and his colleagues have found mating flies, stingless bees, gall midges
, Azteca ants, wasps, bark beetles, mites, spiders, plant parts and even a mammal hair.
complex has been recently reported as one of the major pests from all mango growing areas of Pakistan.
Unlike galls, which are formed by gall midges
(Cecidomyiidae), petal damage is caused by a wide variety of insects.
Checklist of Indian Gall Midges
Articles of about 20 pages then discuss such aspects of the science as pathogenomics of the Ralstonia solanacearum species complex, the role of nematode peptides and other small molecules in plant parasitism, new grower-friendly methods for monitoring plant pathogens, gall midges
(Hessian flies) as plant pathogens, and receptor kinase signaling pathways in plant-microbe interactions.
Gagne (1994), in an account of the gall midges
of the Neotropical Region, provided a brief biography of Jean-Jacques Kieffer (1857-1925), in which he noted that Kieffer published 470 scientific papers, including taxonomic studies of the Cecidomyiidae, Ceratopogonidae, Chironomidae and parasitic Hymenoptera.
White's first large-scale studies of chromosomal polymorphisms on natural populations of grasshoppers took place while he stayed in the USA at the University of Texas, where he also studied the cytology of gall midges
. He chose an exceptional group of Acrididae for his cytogenetic work, the Oedipodinae genera Trimerotropis and Circotettix (White 1949, 1951); in these he pioneered studies on the effects of pericentric inversions (and other rearrangements) on meiosis and on racial and specific differentiation in grasshoppers.
