Fluctuations in density of an outbreak species drive diversity cascades in food webs
Patterns in food-web structure have frequently been examined in static food webs, but few studies have attempted to delineate patterns that materialize in food webs under nonequilibrium conditions.Expand
Sequence and Organization of the Neodiprion lecontei Nucleopolyhedrovirus Genome
ABSTRACT All fully sequenced baculovirus genomes, with the exception of the dipteran Culex nigripalpus nucleopolyhedrovirus (CuniNPV), have previously been from Lepidoptera. This study reports theExpand
A brief review of the past use of baculoviruses for the management of eruptive forest defoliators and recent developments on a sawfly virus in Canada
An overview is presented of the state of knowledge on the use of baculoviruses—a family of virulent insect viruses exhibiting narrow host ranges—for the suppression of insect outbreaks in CanadianExpand

The eugregarine Leidyana canadensis infects the larval gut of the eastern hemlock looper, Lambdina fiscellaria fiscellaria. Guts of infected larvae were chemically fixed, embedded in epoxy resin, andExpand
A polydnavirus from the spruce budworm parasitoid, Tranosema rostrale (Ichneumonidae).
The calyx epithelium of the campoplegine wasp, Tranosema rostrale, contains typical ichneumonid polydnaviruses (PVs) that display an apparently uncommon association with the egg chorion. The latterExpand
Identification and sequence analyses of the granulin gene of Choristoneura fumiferana granulovirus
SummaryThe nucleotide sequence of the granulin gene of Choristoneura fumiferana granulovirus (CfGV) was determined. The gene encodes a protein of 248 amino acids with a predicted Mr of 29.299 kDa.Expand
Molecular characterisation of a cypovirus isolated from the western spruce budworm Choristoneura occidentalis
A novel cypovirus, assigned CoCPV, was isolated from natural populations of the western spruce budworm, Choristoneura occidentalis. The complete nucleotide sequences of genomic segments S2–S5 andExpand
Comparative Genome Sequence Analysis of Choristoneura occidentalis Freeman and C. rosaceana Harris (Lepidoptera: Tortricidae) Alphabaculoviruses
The complete genome sequences of Choristoneura occidentalis and C. rosaceana nucleopolyhedroviruses (ChocNPV and ChroNPV, respectively) (Baculoviridae: Alphabaculovirus) were determined and comparedExpand
Incidence and impact of Entomophaga aulicae (Zygomycetes: Entomophthorales) and a nucleopolyhedrovirus in an outbreak of the whitemarked tussock moth (Lepidoptera: Lymantriidae)
Abstract In Nova Scotia, the whitemarked tussock moth, Orgyia leucostigma Fitch, periodically erupts in outbreaks that typically last 3–5 years. Population changes during a recent outbreak wereExpand
