BACKGROUND Neonicotinoid insecticides were first used commercially for Colorado potato beetle [Leptinotarsa decemlineata (Say), Coleoptera: Chrysomelidae] control in the United States in 1995, and since then have been critical for management of this pest. Field populations from the northeastern and midwestern United States were tested from 1998 to 2010 for(More)
OBJECTIVE Cognitive approaches to clinical communication attribute deficits in communication to lack of skill. We examined, instead, emotional influences on communication by finding out how nurses construed patients who were in pain, and how these constructions were related to the emotional challenge of patients' pain and to deficits in clinical(More)
This year we conducted an insecticide trial comparing programs with and without the use of onion thrips thresholds. The three graphs below show two programs each, where black arrows indicate when threshold based sprays were applied. Gray lines and product names listed below the graph refer to weekly application of insecticides. All insecticides were applied(More)
This project is directed at further enhancing our present integrated pest management strategies for key insect pests in potato with a focus on determining the potential for widespread neonicotinyl resistance in populations of Colorado potato beetle while also providing practical guidance towards implementing an appropriate insecticide resistance management(More)
Advances in our understanding of the microbial ecology at sites impacted by light non-aqueous phase liquids (LNAPLs) are needed to drive development of optimized bioremediation technologies, support longevity models, and develop culture-independent molecular tools. In this study, depth-resolved characterization of geochemical parameters and microbial(More)
