BOTANICAL INSECTICIDES , DETERRENTS , AND REPELLENTS IN MODERN AGRICULTURE AND AN INCREASINGLY REGULATED WORLD
■ Abstract Botanical insecticides have long been touted as attractive alternatives to synthetic chemical insecticides for pest management because botanicals reputedly pose little threat to the
Suggestions for unifying the terminology in biological control
This paper gives suggestions forunifying the terminology in biological controlacross different research disciplines, such asbiological control of arthropods, weeds andplant pathogens. It is suggested
The hidden lifestyles of Bacillus cereus and relatives.
TLDR
It is speculated that all members of the B. cereus group disclose symbiotic relationships with appropriate invertebrate hosts and only occasionally enter a pathogenic life cycle in which the individual species infects suitable hosts and multiplies almost unrestrained.
Bizarre interactions and endgames: entomopathogenic fungi and their arthropod hosts.
TLDR
Examples of host-altered behavior are reviewed and the range of altered behaviors exhibited by invertebrates including behaviorally induced fever, elevation seeking, reduced or increased activity, reduced response to semiochemicals, and changes in reproductive behavior are considered.
Trade-offs in group living: transmission and disease resistance in leaf-cutting ants
TLDR
Both grooming and antibiotic secretions appeared to be important in resistance against the parasite, with the defences of small workers being particularly effective and group living in these ants may actually be associated with a net benefit in terms of disease dynamics.
Community composition, host range and genetic structure of the fungal entomopathogen Beauveria in adjoining agricultural and seminatural habitats
TLDR
Using molecular phylogenetic and genotypic information to infer species diversity, reproductive potential and genetic structure of Beauveria occurring within a single arable field and bordering hedgerow in Denmark, it is shown that all five B. bassiana s.s. phylogenetic species possess bipolar outcrossing mating systems.
