Effect of temperature on biology and population growth parameters of Aphis gossypii Glover (Hom., Aphididae) on greenhouse cucumber
TLDR
Three mathematical models were compared for accuracy in predicting the developmental rate of A. gossypii, and estimating its temperature thresholds and optima, and the Briere 2 and Lactin 2 models were accepted for success to satisfy criteria of goodness‐of‐fit and estimable temperature threshold parameters.

Temperature-dependent functional response of two aphid parasitoids, Aphidius colemani and Aphidius matricariae (Hymenoptera: Aphidiidae), on the cotton aphid
TLDR
The results showed that instantaneous attack rate in A.colemani increased linearly as the temperature increases from 10 to 30°C, but in the case of A.matricariae, increased almost linearly with temperature to reach a maximum at 25 °C, and then decreased at 30° C, displaying an asymmetrical dome-shaped pattern, which suggests that A. cole mani maybe more effective for biological control of the cotton aphid during warmer periods.

Effect of Temperature on Life History of Aphidius colemani and Aphidius matricariae (Hymenoptera: Braconidae), Two Parasitoids of Aphis gossypii and Myzus persicae (Homoptera: Aphididae)
TLDR
The Lactin 2 and Briere 1 developmental models were accepted based on their excellent goodness-of-fit to the data (residual sum of square and coefficient of determination) and estimable temperature thresholds and are strongly recommended for the description of temperature-dependent development of A. colemani and A. matricariae.

Linking Life Table and Consumption Rate of Amblyseius swirskii (Acari: Phytoseiidae) in Presence and Absence of Different Pollens
TLDR
Amblyseius swirskii had greater control potential of T. urticae in the presence of almond pollen than other diets, and feeding on almond pollen resulted in higher intrinsic and finite rate of increase compared with feeding on date and bee pollens. Expand
Pollen quality and predator viability: life table of Typhlodromus bagdasarjani on seven different plant pollens and two-spotted spider mite
TLDR
Almond pollen can be used to amplify the experimental and commercial mass rearing programs of this predator and maize plant can be recommended as banker plants in greenhouses. Expand
Natural Enemies of Cypress Tree Mealybug, Planococcus vovae (Nasonov) (Hem., Pseudococcidae), and their Parasitoids in Tehran, Iran
TLDR
Three species of cypress tree mealybug, Coccidoxenoides perminutus Girault, Aprostocetus ceroplastae (Girault) and Pachyneuron bonum Xu and Li were recorded here for the first time from Iran. Expand
Producing a landslide inventory map using pixel-based and object-oriented approaches optimized by Taguchi method
Abstract Landslides are considered one of the most important natural hazards. Mapping landslides and producing landslide inventory maps have received special attention from a wide range ofExpand
Functional response and mutual interference of Diaeretiella rapae (Hymenoptera: Aphidiidae) on Brevicoryne brassicae (Homoptera: Aphididae).
TLDR
The functional response and mutual interference of the parasitoid wasp, Diaeretiella rapae, attacking the cabbage aphid and Brevicoryne brassicae nymphs were investigated, finding different host–parasitoid ratios could affect the efficacy of D. rapae. Expand
LIFE HISTORY AND DEMOGRAPHIC PARAMETERS OF APHIS FABAE (HEMIPTERA: APHIDIDAE) AND ITS PARASITOID, APHIDIUS MATRICARIAE (HYMENOPTERA: APHIDIIDAE) ON FOUR SUGAR BEET CULTIVARS
TLDR
The use of Shirin cultivar is suggested to maximize the natural biological control of A. fabae and A. matricariae as a step toward Biological control of black bean aphid. Expand
