Impact of transgenic cotton plants on a non‐target pest, Aphis gossypii Glover
Abstract.  1. Transgenic crops have shown great promise for the control of target pest insects, but in some cases they can also influence non‐target species. This study investigated the impact of BtExpand
Observations of the autumn migration of the rice leaf roller Cnaphalocrocis medinalis (Lepidoptera: Pyralidae) and other moths in eastern China.
The autumn migration of the rice leaf roller moth, Cnaphalocrocis medinalis Guenee, in eastern China was studied at two sites (one in southern Jiangsu Province and one in northern Jiangxi Province),Expand

Abstract Brown Planthopper (BPH, Nilaparvata lugens (Stål)) is one of the most serious pests of rice in both temperate and tropical regions of East and South Asia and has become especiallyExpand
Characterization of the Complete Mitochondrial Genomes of Cnaphalocrocis medinalis and Chilo suppressalis (Lepidoptera: Pyralidae)
The complete mitochondrial genomes (mitogenomes) of Cnaphalocrocis medinalis and Chilo suppressalis (Lepidoptera: Pyralidae) were determined and analyzed. The circular genomes were 15,388 bp long forExpand
Effects of temperature stress and pesticide exposure on fluctuating asymmetry and mortality of Copera annulata (Selys) (Odonata: Zygoptera) larvae.
Although there have been some investigations into the effects of insecticide on the level of fluctuating asymmetry (FA) of adult damselflies, the cooperative effects of environmental factors on FA ofExpand

Rice planthopper (RPH) populations of Nilaparvata lugens and Sogatella furcifera periodically have erupted across Asia. Predicting RPH population dynamics and identifying their source areas areExpand
Outbreak reasons of Laodelphax striatellus population.
As the most important vector of some plant virus transmission, the populations of small brown planthoppers (SBPH), Laodelphax striatellus, were trended to increase in recent years, and it causedExpand
Specialized host-plant performance of the cotton aphid is altered by experience
Although distinct host specialization is observed for the cotton-melon aphid (Aphis gossypii Glover) on cotton and cucurbit plants, it is still ambiguous whether the specialization is altered byExpand
Prediction of migratory routes of the invasive fall armyworm in eastern China using a trajectory analytical approach
BACKGROUND The fall armyworm (FAW), an invasive pest from the Americas, is rapidly spreading through the Old World, and has recently invaded the Indochinese Peninsula and southern China. In theExpand
