Transstadial and horizontal transfer of bacteria within a colony of Anopheles gambiae (Diptera: Culicidae) and oviposition response to bacteria-containing water.
In a paratransgenic approach, genetically modified bacteria are utilized to kill the parasite in the vector gut. A critical component for paratransgenics against malaria is how transgenic bacteriaExpand
Volatiles of Bracket Fungi Fomitopsis pinicola and Fomes fomentarius and Their Functions as Insect Attractants
Volatiles released from fruiting bodies of the polypores Fomitopsis pinicola and Fomes fomentarius (Polyporaceae) were collected by entrainment and SPME techniques and analyzed by GC-MS. The mostExpand
Sexual cooperation and conflict in butterflies: a male–transferred anti–aphrodisiac reduces harassment of recently mated females
Sexual selection theory predicts that the different selection pressures on males and females result in sexual conflict. However, in some instances males and females share a common interest whichExpand
Biological degradation of selected hydrocarbons in an old PAH/creosote contaminated soil from a gas work site
Abstract An old PAH/creosote contaminated soil (total ∼300 μg PAH/g soil) from a former gas work site in Stockholm, Sweden, has been treated at 20 °C with the addition of various nutrients andExpand
Chemical and ethological studies of pollination in the genus Ophrys (Orchidaceae).
Abstract Results of chemical analyses of volatile compounds from flowers of 30 Ophrys taxa, from odour attracted insects, and the pollination biology of Ophrys orchids are reviewed. ChemicalExpand
Relative amounts and enantiomeric compositions of monoterpene hydrocarbons in xylem and needles of Picea abies
Abstract The relative amounts of 23 monoterpene hydrocarbons, including enantiomers, present in extracts of branch xylem and needles from 41 Picea abies plus-trees of widely different origins, wereExpand
Oviposition Responses of Anopheles gambiae s.s. (Diptera: Culicidae) and Identification of Volatiles from Bacteria-Containing Solutions
Abstract In this study, a dual-choice oviposition bioassay was used to screen responses of gravid An. gambiae toward 17 bacterial species, previously isolated from Anopheles gambiae s.l. (Diptera:Expand
Plant odor analysis of apple: antennal response of codling moth females to apple volatiles during phenological development.
Volatile compounds were collected from apple branches (Malus domestica) at different developmental stages, and the antennal response of codling moth females (Cydia pomonella) to these compounds wasExpand
(S)-(+)-Linalool, a Mate Attractant Pheromone Component in the Bee Colletes cunicularius
Enantiomerically pure (S)-(+)-linalool was the main constituent in the extracts of the cephalic secretions of virgin females, mated females, freshly emerged males, and patrolling males of theExpand
Induced Terpene Accumulation in Norway Spruce Inhibits Bark Beetle Colonization in a Dose-Dependent Manner
Background Tree-killing bark beetles (Coleoptera, Scolytinae) are among the most economically and ecologically important forest pests in the northern hemisphere. Induction of terpenoid-basedExpand
