Effect of temperature on the development and fecundity of the Cryptic Mealybug, Pseudococcus cryptus, in the laboratory
The preoviposition and oviposition periods showed a pattern similar to that of longevity and the non-linear model based on a Gaussian equation used to predict relationship between development rate and temperature was well described for all stages. Expand
Temperature-driven models of Aculops pelekassi (Acari: Eriophyidae) based on its development and fecundity on detached citrus leaves in the laboratory
The oviposition model, coupled with the stage emergence model, should be useful to construct a population model for A. pelekassi in the future and provide a good fit for the distribution of development times of each stage. Expand
The Patterns of Change in Arterial Oxygen Saturation and Heart Rate and Their Related Factors during Voluntary Breath holding and Rebreathing
To investigate the changes of and heart rate(HR) during breath holding (BH) and rebreathing (RB) and to evaluate the physiologic factors responsible for the changes, lung volume measurements, and arterial blood gas analyses were performed in 17 healthy subjects. Expand
Occurrence Pattern and Damage of Scirtothrips dorsalis (Thysanoptera:Thripidae) in Primary Host and Citrus Orchards on Jeju Island
It was found that densities, distribution and damage of S. dorsalis in citrus orchards depend highly on the distance from the border of kiwi and mango orchard, which suggested that the primary hosts such as kiwo and mango plants influence the occurrence of S-Dordalis in adjacent citrus orChards.

Multi-modal oviposition model of overwintered Unaspis yanonensis (Hemiptera: Diaspididae) females and its field validation
The model showed high robustness, as the Pearson’s correlation coefficients between actual observations and model outputs indicated significantly positive values and were mostly high values > 0.80, which should be useful for timing control action targeting on the crawler population in citrus orchards.
