This insect spends part of its life cycle in the soil, making it a target for entomopathogenic nematodes. This work aimed at evaluating the influence of soil temperature and moisture on the infectivity of(More)
Soil water repellency (SWR) in Mediterranean sub-humid environments is poorly studied in soils derived from basic bedrock.

Sampling was performed on two adjacent slopes (NE/SW) underneath Quercus(More)
