Two reliable small-plant bioassays were developed using tissue-cultured banana, resulting in consistent symptom expression and infection by Fusarium oxysporum f. sp. cubense (Foc). One bioassay was… Expand
Diversity of host plant relationships and leaf galling behaviours within a small genus of thrips - Gynaikothrips and Ficus in south east Queensland, Australia.
Thrips are well known as gall inducers, yet no field studies have been published on phlaeothripids in the genus Gynaikothrips, which gall Ficus leaves in Australia. A detailed field study was… Expand
