Crude protein (CP) content varied with the interaction between Fabaceous
species, shade level and period of the year (p=0.0085).
CPMMV is widely spread across all continents, infecting fabaceous
plants (Brunt & Kenten, 1973; Costa, Gaspar, & Vega, 1983; Antignus & Cohen, 1987), whereas MYaV has been reported only in Brazil, where it causes serious damage to melon crops (Nagata et al., 2003, 2005).
Thrips on fabaceous
plants and weeds in an ecotone in northeastern Brazil.
It is also the first report of this predator on lima bean since thrips surveys were conducted by Lima and Zucchi (2016) on fabaceous
plants and weeds in northeastern Brazil.
Usually found on Fabaceous
trees, such as Lonchocarpus and Pterocarpus, and eats their foliage in captivity.
HOSTS: Unknown, but all specimens were collected from inflorescences of fabaceous
trees planted in the garden of South East Asian Fisheries Development Center.
A natural product that could properly be called 8-prenylnaringenin is known to exist, e.g., from the Fabaceous
shrub native to Asia, Sophora flavescens Ait.
There are several different growth forms: grasses (Uniola paniculata and Schizachyrium littorale); conspicuous herbaceous plants and several brassicaceous species of the genus Cakile; creeping plants like Ipomoea pes-caprae or the legume Canavalia rosea, with runners up to 98 ft (30 m) long; clump-formers like the euphorbiaceous Croton punctatus or the fabaceous
Cassia [= Chamaecrista] chamaecristoides; and shrubs 7-10 ft (2-3 m) high, such as Suriana maritima, the only representative of the family Surianaceae; and the polygonaceous sea grape Coccoloba uvifera.
Some floral mechanisms are too complicated to be learned by honeybees (e.g., certain fabaceous
keel flowers; Westerkamp, 1993; Teppner, 1988).
Thrips were collected from 33 species of plants (ornamental and forage fabaceous
species, along with nearby weeds), 30 of which are native (Tables 1, 2, 3 and 4).The surveys were conducted in two municipalities with typical caatinga-cerrado ecotone vegetation, Sao Luis (02[degrees]35'01" S; 44[degrees]12'33" W) and Teresina (05[degrees]05'21" S; 42[degrees]48'07" W), in 2010 (July, August and December) and 2011 (January and July), the period of planting and flowering of fabaceous
plants in the region.
About 80% of fabaceous
species produce hard seeds (Baskin & Baskin 1998, Baskin et al.
2006), 4 are species without host-plant information, and 12 are species known to feed on fabaceous
plants (Inoue 1982; Hayashi et al.
