The impact of Spodoptera exigua herbivory on Meloidogyne incognita-induced root responses depends on the nematodes’ life cycle stages
Abstract Induced responses to above-ground and below-ground herbivores may interact via systemic signalling in plants. We investigated whether the impact of above-ground herbivory on root-knotExpand
Macrolepiota aberdarense, a new edible mushroom from Kenya
A new Macrolepiota species from the Aberdare Forest in Kenya is described and illustrated. The larger basidiomata with yellow brownish to brownish granular squamules, distinct umbo, larger basidiaExpand
Insect chemical ecology: chemically mediated interactions and novel applications in agriculture
Insect chemical ecology (ICE) evolved as a discipline concerned with plant–insect interactions, and also with a strong focus on intraspecific pheromone-mediated communication. Progress in this fieldExpand
Deciphering systemically induced plant responses underlying interactions between root-knot nematode and shoot herbivores
Plants mediate interactions between herbivores that attack simultaneously or sequentially above-groun (AG) and below-groun (BG) parts. Local and systemic induction of hormonal pathways and theExpand
Characterisation and Development of Propagation Spawns For Selected Wild Edible Mushrooms From Aberdare National Forest, Kenya
Characterization and identification of mushrooms at the species level is an important first step in systematic exploitation in specific applications. Mushrooms industry is growing rapidly in Kenya,Expand
MORPHOLOGICAL CHARACTERIZATION OF KENYAN NATIVE MACROLEPIOTA SPP OF MUSHROOM AND THE EFFECT OF SUPPLEMENTED MILLET AND SORGHUM GRAINS IN SPAWN PRODUCTION
Kenya is rich in mushroom biodiversity that has not been fully exploited. Rural communities consume wild ediblespecies especially during the rainy seasons. Utilization of mushrooms collected from theExpand
Induced Local and Systemic Defense Responses in Tomato Underlying Interactions Between the Root-Knot Nematode Meloidogyne incognita and the Potato Aphid Macrosiphum euphorbiae
Plants mediate interactions between different herbivores that attack simultaneously or sequentially aboveground (AG) and belowground (BG) organs. The local and systemic activation of hormonalExpand
