Biology and life table of the cassava mite, Tetranychus truncatus Ehara (Acari: Tetranychidae)
The overall results suggested that T. truncatus could develop and reproduce within a wide range of temperatures and the range 24–31°C was the most suitable for the development, survival rate and reproduction of this mite. Expand
Morphology and distribution of antennal sensilla of the tarnished plant bug, Lygus lineolaris (Palisot de beauvois) (Hemiptera: Miridae)
There are significantly more type(s) 3, 4, 5 and 6 sensilla in adult males than adult females, which suggests an olfactory function and sexual dimorphism is observed in total numbers. Expand
Biology and efficacy of the predatory mite, Amblyseius longispinosus (Evans) (Acari, Phytoseiidae) as a biological control agent of Eotetranychus cendanai Rimando (Acari, Tetranychidae)
Egg, larval, protonymphal and deutonymphal stages of Amblyseius longispinosus (Evans) that fed on Eotetranychus cendanai, required 2.02 ± 0.13, 0.57‰±‰0.17, 1.07’±‚0.31 and 1.16‰¦0.34 eggs/female per day to be laid. Expand
Factors Associated with Resistance to Fall Armyworm (Lepidoptera: Noctuidae) and Southwestern Corn Borer (Lepidoptera: Crambidae) in Corn at Different Vegetative Stages
This investigation was undertaken to determine the associations between various chemical and physical characteristics of resistant and susceptible corn hybrids and leaf-feeding damage and larval growth on hybrids infested at different vagetative stages of growth. Expand
Sensory cues and receptors for oviposition by Heliothis virescens
When given a choice of cotton (host) and ground cherry (non host) in a close range situation, Heliothis virescens (F.), the tobacco budworm, depends primarily on contact chemoreception andExpand
Stipitate hydnoid fungi of the temperate southeastern United States
An 11 year study was conducted to reevaluate the species of stipitate hydnums from the southern United States especially the Great Smoky Mountains and surrounding geography, finding many species within Hydnellum and Phellodon have a indeterminate type growth often dependant on environmental conditions making discrimination between closely related species difficult without supportive molecular sequence data.

Pesticide-induced mortality and prey-dependent life history of the predatory miteNeoseiulus longispinosus (Acari: Phytoseiidae)
The life history of Neoseiulus longispinosus (Evans), a common predaceous mite on various plants in central, eastern, and southern Thailand, was studied under laboratory conditions at 30±2 °C, 50±5%Expand
Spiracular Plate of Nymphal and Adult Hard Ticks (Acarina: Ixodidae): Morphology and Cuticular Ultrastructure
Morphology and ultrastructure of the nymphal and adult spiracular plate of five species of hard ticks (Ixodidae) are described using scanning scanning and transmission electron microscopy. Both theExpand
Structure of the male and female reproductive and digestive systems of Rhizoglyphus robini Claparede (Acari, Acaridae)
The anatomy and histology of the female and male reproductive and digestive systems of Rhizoglyphus robini are described. The female reproductive system consists of paired ovaries and oviducts,Expand
