Species-wide homogeneity of nuclear ribosomal ITS2 sequences in the spider mite Tetranychus urticae contrasts with extensive mitochondrial COI polymorphism
We compared patterns of intraspecific polymorphism of two markers with contrasted modes of evolution, nuclear ribosomal DNA (rDNA) and mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA), in the phytophagous mite TetranychusExpand
Mitochondrial cytochrome oxidase I in tetranychid mites: a comparison between molecular phylogeny and changes of morphological and life history traits
Spider mites, Tetranychidae, represent one of the most cosmopolitan and economically important groups of terrestrial arthropods; however, many aspects of their evolutionary relationships remainExpand
Intraspecific diversity of the Cassava Green Mite Mononychellus progresivus (Acari: Tetranychidae) using comparisons of mitochondrial and nuclear ribosomal DNA sequences and cross-breeding
Intraspecific diversity in Cassava Green Mite Mononychellus progresivus Doreste was examined using individuals collected in Benin and the Congo and in Columbia and Brazil. Comparisons were based onExpand
Influence of temperature on the life-history parameters of the yellow grape-vine mite Eotetranychus carpini (Oudemans) (Acari: Tetranychidae).
ABSTRACT The life-history parameters of Eotetranychus carpini (Oudemans), a rarely studied species, were determined in the laboratory at five temperatures ranging from 15 ± 0.50 C to 30 ± 0.50 CExpand
Synonymy between two spider mite species, Tetranychus kanzawai and T. hydrangeae (Acari: Tetranychidae), shown by ribosomal ITS2 sequences and cross-breeding experiments
Amplification of the second internal transcribed spacer (ITS2) of ribosomal DNA was used to compare seven samples of the Tetranychus kanzawai Kishida–T. hydrangeae Pritchard & Baker mite complex fromExpand
DNA sequences and cross‐breeding experiments in the hawthorn spider mite Amphitetranychus viennensis reveal high genetic differentiation between Japanese and French populations
Sequence variation of the complete second internal transcribed spacer (ITS2, 445 bp) of nuclear ribosomal DNA and part of the mitochondrial cytochrome oxidase I gene (COI, 350 bp) was examined inExpand
Molecular approach in spider mites (Acari: Tetranychidae): Preliminary data on ribosomal DNA sequences
DNA sequence data were used to examine phylogenetic relationships between six species of economically important Tetranychidae mites:Eotetranychus carpini (Oudemans),E. pruni (Reck),TetranychusExpand
Effect of Mating Status on the Fecundity and Longevity of Four Spider Mite Species (Acari: Tetranychidae)
The longevity and fecundity of inseminated and uninseminated females of four phytophagous mite species from the Indo-Pacific tropical area, Tetranychus fijiensis, T. lambi, T. marianae and T.Expand
