Horseweed (Conyza canadensis) seed collected in the planetary boundary layer
Abstract Horseweed is a winter or summer annual plant, native to North America and distributed worldwide in temperate climates. This plant is considered an important agricultural weed because it can
Identification of postweaning multisystemic wasting syndrome in European wild boar (Sus scrofa)
TLDR
It is concluded that P concinnum infection is a significant health problem in cats living in Merida, Yucatan, Mexico, and the sex (female) and age (animals two years or older) of these animals can be correlated with the presence of P conc Finnum infection.
[Case report: Porcine circovirus type 2 infection in an European wild boar (Sus scrofa) in the state of Brandenburg, Germany].
TLDR
The presented case rises the questions if PCV-2 is endemic in the European wild boar population at least in certain areas, if it is of pathogenetic importance for wild boars and if the virus present inWild boars is identical to that present in domestic pigs with PMWS.
Multiple-Species Natural Enemy Approach for Biological Control of Alfalfa Snout Beetle (Coleoptera: Curculionidae) Using Entomopathogenic Nematodes
Abstract Multiple-species natural enemy approach for the biological control of the alfalfa snout beetle, Otiorhynchus ligustici (L.) (Coleoptera: Curculionidae), was compared with using
Biological Control of Alfalfa Snout Beetle with a multi-species application of locally adapted persistent entomopathogenic nematodes: The first success.
TLDR
This research suggests that using locally adapted EPNs in a multi-species application provides a more effective approach to the biological control of ASB and potentially that of other soil pests.
Development and size-fecundity relationship of the yellow lac scale, Tachardina aurantiaca (Hemiptera: Sternorrhyncha: Kerriidae).
TLDR
The number of crawlers produced per female increased remarkably with increase in female body size (measured as diameter) with r2 = 0.59 (p < 0.05), and larger field-collected females with an average diameter produced a mean of 323.6 crawlers per female.
