Vespidae (Hymenoptera) of the Pothwar region of Punjab, Pakistan .
TLDR
Six genera and nine species of Eumeninae, including E. punctatus and E. papillarius are newly recorded from Pakistan, and one genus and four species of Vespinae are recorded from Pothwar region. Expand
Insecticide Resistance and Detoxification Enzymes Activity in Nilaparvata lugens Stål Against Neonicotinoids
TLDR
The resistance of N. lugens increased significantly against imidacloprid, thiamethoxam, clothianidin, and nitenpyram (neonicotinoids) under selection pressure and detoxification enzymes play an important role in insecticide detoxification. Expand
Functional Morphology and Defensive Behavior in a Social Aphid
TLDR
The results showed significant differences in functional morphology between soldiers, first instar nymphs, and adults, which indicates a cost–benefit trade-off in the evolution of the social aphid species. Expand
Vertically Transmitted Gut Bacteria and Nutrition Influence the Immunity and Fitness of Bactrocera dorsalis Larvae
TLDR
Diet and vertically transmitted bacteria are both essential contributors to the fitness and immunity of B. dorsalis larvae that were fed a nutritionally manipulated diet. Expand
DNA barcoding of aphid-associated ants (Hymenoptera, Formicidae) in a subtropical area of southern China
TLDR
Three barcoding approaches – Automatic Barcode Gap Discovery, Bayesian Poisson Tree Processes and Generalized Mixed Yule-coalescent – were used to help delimit ant species based on COI sequences, and their results corresponded well with most of the morphospecies. Expand
Polygenic variation following irradiation in inter-specific crosses of cotton
TLDR
The occurrence of rare types of segregants for several important characters supports the possible role played by recombinations at meiotic and somaticmore levels in the treated populations as compared to control. Expand
