Oxidative stress in pea seedling leaves in response to Acyrthosiphon pisum infestation.
Findings indicate that the defensive strategies against A. pisum infestation were stimulated in seedling leaves of P. cv. Expand
Role of phenolic compounds during antioxidative responses of winter triticale to aphid and beetle attack.
It was found, that infestation by insects induced a high increase in the content of hydrogen peroxide and superoxide anion radical within resistant Lamberto cv, whereas in sensitive Marko cv. Expand
Selected insect groups of shrubbery complexes of "Biedrusko" Protected Lanscape. Part I: Aphids (Hemiptera: Aphidoidea)
In the research carried out at „Biedrusko” Protected Landscape Area in the years 2003-2005 in shrubberies of Rhamno-Prunetea class 15 species of aphids were found in the shaking method on the bushes, while the richest finds were collected with the method of Moericke’s traps: 118 different aphid species.

The Dynamics of the Defense Strategy of Pea Induced by Exogenous Nitric Oxide in Response to Aphid Infestation
The present study showed that foliar application of NO donors induced sequentially defense reactions of pea against A. pisum and had a deterrent effect on aphid feeding and limited the population growth rate. Expand
Influence of temperature on the biological parameters of the anholocyclic species Cinara tujafilina (Hemiptera: Aphidoidea)
The results suggest that the optimal temperature for the species is 25°C, and indicate that climatic change will favourably influence its development and increase its role as a pest of decorative plants. Expand
Bionomy and ecology of Amphorophora idaei [Born.] on raspberry
The bionomy and ecology of Amphorophora idaei (Bőrn.) on raspberry was studied under insectary conditions and in two rasberry farm plantations in 1997-2002. In 2001 and 2002 the develop- ment andExpand
Larval instars of Appendiseta robiniae (Gillette, 1907) (Hemiptera: Aphidoidea: Drepanosiphidae)
DFA analysis confirmed that larval growth is the fastest between the third and fourth instars and the best parameters distinguishing the instars of A. robiniae are antenna and body lengths. Expand
Pea aphid infestation induces changes in flavonoids, antioxidative defence, soluble sugars and sugar transporter expression in leaves of pea seedlings
In conclusion, A. pisum infestation on pea leads to stimulation of metabolic pathways associated with defence, including accumulation of flavonoids, changes of carbon metabolism, and expression of nuclear genes involved in sugar transport. Expand
Defense responses of Thuja orientalis to infestation of anholocyclic species aphid Cinara tujafilina.
Results indicate that the perception of C. tujafilina infestation by T. orientalis leaves induces a specified sequence of defense mechanisms in the course of time. Expand
