Behavioral and Electrophysiological Responses of Arhopalus tristis to Burnt Pine and Other Stimuli
The exotic longhorn beetle Arhopalus tristisis a pest of pines, particularly those damaged by fire, and a major export quarantine issue in New Zealand. Actinograph recordings of caged individualsExpand
EUROPEAN EARWIG PHENOLOGY AND EFFECT OF UNDERSTOREY MANAGEMENT ON POPULATION ESTIMATION
European earwigs (Forficula auricularia L.) were sampled in a Canterbury apple orchard over two growing seasons using shelter traps comprised of corrugated cardboard rolls. Adult activity peakedExpand
The role of peroxidase isozymes in resistance to wheat stem rust disease.
In common with other disease situations, rust-resistant wheat leaves show a large increase in peroxidase activity during infection. Peroxidase isozymes from healthy or infected lines of wheatExpand
PHEROMONE TRAP COLOUR DETERMINES CATCH OF NON-TARGET INSECTS
Pheromone traps were operated in five regions to determine the impact of trap colour on catch of target and non-target insects. Red or green coloured pheromone sticky traps caught fewer native andExpand
The maturation and breeding biology of Harmothoë imbricata (Polychaeta: Polynoidae)
The embryos of Harmothoë imbricata (L.) are protected during their early development as a mass under the scales of the female parent. Eggs are shed into the space under the scales through nephridialExpand
Structure of the host-specific pathotoxins produced by Phyllosticta maydis
Abstract Linear polyketol structures of two host-specific pathotoxins from Phyllosticta maydis (PM-toxin B and PM-toxin C) were elucidated by MS fragmentation patterns of the toxins and theirExpand
IMPROVING THE PHEROMONE LURE FOR DIAMONDBACK MOTH
Pheromone traps have potential to assist with integrated pest management of diamondback moth (Plutella xylostella (Linnaeus)). Trapping experiments were set up in brassica crops in Canterbury andExpand
The structure of the toxin from helminthosporium carbonum
Using Fast Atom Bombardment Mass Spectrometry and Mass Spectrometry/Mass Spectrometry, the structure of HC-toxin a metabolite of Helminthosporium carbonum, is postulated to be structure 3.
