1.6.3 Preparation, mounting and descriptive study of eriophyoid mites
Catalog of the Eriophyoidea (Acarina: Prostigmata) of the world.
Corrections are provided to entries in the Catalog of the Eriophyoidea (Acarina: Prostigmata) of the World by J. Amrine and T. Stasny, 1994 because of errors present in the original text.
Effectiveness of eriophyid mites for biological control of weedy plants and challenges for future research
Concerns that eriophyid mites may be more likely to lose efficacy over time due to coevolution with the target weed or that they may bemore likely to adapt to nontarget host plants compared to insects, which have a longer generation time and slower population growth rate are raised.
Recommended procedures and techniques for morphological studies of Eriophyoidea (Acari: Prostigmata)
Based on their expertise on this topic, the authors provide guidelines and advices of the main critical aspects in managing eriophyoid mites in order to supplement and improve techniques for handling and preparation of specimens, and for improving their taxonomic study.
Host-plant specificity and specialization in eriophyoid mites and their importance for the use of eriophyoid mites as biocontrol agents of weeds

Testing the actual host range of a given eriophyoid species, searching for ecological data, genetic differentiation analysis, and recognizing factors and mechanisms that contribute to host specificity of eriophical mites are suggested as future directions for research.

Attention is directed to dispersal modes of eriophyoid mites, their feeding and host acceptance, spermatophore deposition and mating, defence against predators, and social behaviour.
Genetic Characterization of North American Populations of the Wheat Curl Mite and Dry Bulb Mite
Results indicated limited variability between these two species, but two distinct types within A. tosichella were found that corresponded to previous work with Australian mite populations, and it is important that future studies on biological response differences account for these mite differences.
