Silviculture.'-Silviculturists and others interested in forest management will welcome the second part of Professor Mouillefert's comprehensive treatise which is now out. The first part
The effects of kaolin particle film on Plutella xylostella behaviour and development.
The results warrant the extension of investigations of kaolin-based particle films to field-based P. xylostella management strategies, as any observed treatment effect was enhanced with an increase in the particle film coverage.
Suitability of Arabidopsis thaliana as a model for host plant–Plutella xylostella–Cotesia plutellae interactions
This study assesses the suitability of Arabidopsis thaliana (L.) Heynh.
The use of selfing in selection of forest trees
It is argued that the biologically deleterious effects of inbreeding may be moderated sufficiently by culling so that the theoretical relative efficiency of the selfed family scheme is not materially affected by inbreeding depression.
Eight Patterns of Open Textbook Adoption in British Columbia
Since the launch of the BC Open Textbook Project in 2012, the adoption of open textbooks has steadily grown within public post-secondary institutions in British Columbia, Canada. An analysis of
Effects of kaolin particle film on Myzus persicae (Hemiptera: Aphididae) behaviour and performance.
Investigation of the mode of action of kaolin against aphids found that when M. persicae were given a choice between kaolin-treated and untreated (or water solvent-treated) leaf areas, both adults and nymphs exhibited a significant preference for non-kaolin- treated host-plant material.
Arabidopsis thaliana as a model host plant for Plutella xylostella.
Preliminary laboratory investigations have shown that A. thaliana can be used as a host plant by Plutella xylostella (L.) (Lepidoptera: Yponomeutidae) and have demonstrated that larval period, pupal period and pupal weight measurements of P. xylastella developing on A.Thaliana are comparable to those on Brassica rapa.
