The top 100 questions of importance to the future of global agriculture
Despite a significant growth in food production over the past half-century, one of the most important challenges facing society today is how to feed an expected population of some nine billion by the… Expand

This paper describes the ‘push–pull’ or ‘stimulo-deterrent diversionary’ strategy in relation to current and potential examples from our own experiences. The push–pull effect is established by… Expand
Introduction and spread of the cassava green mite, Mononychellus tanajoa (Bondar) (Acari: Tetranychidae), an exotic pest in Africa and the search for appropriate control methods: a review.
Mononychellus tanajoa (Bondar), a spider mite new to Africa, was discovered on cassava in Uganda in 1971. This exotic mite of Neotropical origin has since spread to 27 countries, causing an estimated… Expand

Foraging range, an important component of bee ecology, is of considerable interest for insect-pollinated plants because it determines the potential for outcrossing among individuals. However,… Expand
Economics of biological control of cassava mealybug in Africa
Pest populations of the cassava mealybug Phenacoccus manihoti Mat.-Ferr. (Homoptera: Pseudococcidae) were reduced successfully by the biological control agent Apoanagyrus (Epidinocarsis) lopezi De… Expand
Dynamics of Mononychellus tanajoa (Acari: Tetranychidae) in Africa: Seasonal factors affecting phenology and abundance.
Populations of Mononychellus tanajoa (Bondar) increased on new leaf growth of cassava, Manihot esculenta Crantz, during the early dry season, averaging 20–200 active mites per leaf depending on plant… Expand
Dynamics of Mononychellus tanajoa (Acari: Tetranychidae) in Africa: Experimental Evidence of Temperature and Host Plant Effects on Population Growth Rates
Effects of temperature, season (wet versus dry), plant age, and leaf age on developmental time, fecundity, survivorship, and intrinsic rate of increase (rm) of Mononychellus tanajoa (Bondar) on… Expand
