  • Annual review of entomology
  • 1998
This review examines potential impacts of transgenic cultivars on insect population dynamics and evolution. Experience with classically bred, insecticidal cultivars has demonstrated that a solidExpand

Identification of a Gene Associated with Bt Resistance in Heliothis virescens
Transgenic crops producing insecticidal toxins from Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt) are widely used for pest control. Bt-resistant insect strains have been studied, but the molecular basis of resistanceExpand

Selection and Genetic Analysis of a Heliothis virescens (Lepidoptera: Noctuidae) Strain with High Levels of Resistance to Bacillus thuringiensis Toxins
Heliothis virescens (F.), tobacco budworms eggs were collected from 3 adjacent counties in North Carolina. A laboratory strain (YDK) was established from these eggs using precautions to avoid loss ofExpand

Initial frequency of alleles for resistance to Bacillus thuringiensis toxins in field populations of Heliothis virescens.
The risk of rapid pest adaptation to an insecticide is highly dependent on the initial frequency of resistance alleles in field populations. Because we have lacked empirical estimates of theseExpand

Functional characterization of pheromone receptors in the tobacco budworm Heliothis virescens
Functional analyses of candidate Heliothis virescens pheromone odorant receptors (HvORs) were conducted using heterologous expression in Xenopus oocytes. HvOR6 was found to be highly tuned toExpand

Gene drive systems for insect disease vectors
The elegant mechanisms by which naturally occurring selfish genetic elements, such as transposable elements, meiotic drive genes, homing endonuclease genes and Wolbachia, spread at the expense ofExpand

THE IMPORTANCE OF MOSQUITO BEHAVIOURAL ADAPTATIONS TO MALARIA CONTROL IN AFRICA
Over the past decade the use of long‐lasting insecticidal nets (LLINs), in combination with improved drug therapies, indoor residual spraying (IRS), and better health infrastructure, has helpedExpand

Overexpression of the Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt) Cry2Aa2 protein in chloroplasts confers resistance to plants against susceptible and Bt-resistant insects.
Evolving levels of resistance in insects to the bioinsecticide Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt) can be dramatically reduced through the genetic engineering of chloroplasts in plants. When transgenicExpand

Manipulating natural enemies by plant variety selection and modification: a realistic strategy?
The host plants of arthropod pests may affect parasitoids and predators directly or indirectly, through multitrophic interactions. Direct plant effects may involve simple mechanisms such as reducedExpand

Spread of resistance in spatially extended regions of transgenic cotton : Implications for management of Heliothis virescens (Lepidoptera: Noctuidae)
Through the use of a stochastic, spatially explicit, simulation model, we explored factors that may influence the regional development of resistance in Heliothis virescens (F.) to a BacillusExpand
