Population structure of the Brazilian southern green stink bug, Nezara viridula
TLDR
The Southern Green Stink Bug, Nezara viridula (L.) (Heteroptera: Pentatomidae), is a cosmopolitan and economically important pest to several crops and DNA from specimens collected on soybean fields were subjected to RAPD analysis to determine genetic similarity and population structure parameters.
Genetic diversity of the sunflower caterpillar (Chlosyne lacinia saundersii Doubleday and Hewitson) (Lepidoptera: Nymphalidae) populations determined by molecular RAPD markers.
Chlosyne lacinia saundersii is one of the most important pests of sunflower and it is the main target of insecticides applications. Larvae were collected in Londrina (PR), Santa Maria (RS), Dourados
Population structure of the Brazilian southern green stink bug, Nezara viridula
TLDR
The estimated overall index, Nm was 1.41 suggesting that N. viridula is a better flier than the Neotropical Brown stink bug, Euschistus heros, and the estimated gene flow index (Nm) among them was 2.02 suggesting relatively restricted migration.
