Anguina australis, a vector for Rathayibacter toxicus in Ehrharta longiflora
It is concluded that A. australis is a vector for R. toxicus and that infested E. longiflora in WA may pose a risk to livestock. Expand
Use of high resolution digital thermography to detect Heterodera schachtii infestation in sugar beets.
Thermography is a non-destructive method used to monitor pest and disease infestations, as it is related to changes in plant water status, and might be a useful tool for monitoring sugar beet fields. Expand
Detection of Heterodera schachtii infestation in sugar beet by means of laser-induced and pulse amplitude modulated chlorophyll fluorescence
The linear discrimination analysis based on the combination of PAM and LIF parameters resulted in 100% correct classification of control plants and high classification rates of the infested treatments on all the sampling dates, indicating whether the fluorescence technique will differentiate nematode densities under field conditions needs further study.

Kentucky coffeetree, Gymnocladus dioicus (L.) K. Koch: Current abundance in nature and prospective persistence.
Observations in sampling G. dioicus across circa 95 percent of the species native range would indicate the species is rare not because of an obvious or direct threat of insect or disease, but rather because of indirect, often overlooked, ecological changes. Expand
