Sources of Resistance to Whitefly (Bemisia spp.) in Wild Populations of Solanum lycopersicum var. Cerasiforme (Dunal) Spooner G.J. Anderson et R.K. Jansen in Northwestern Mexico
Genetic variability of wild populations, closely related to domesticated species, constitute important genetic resources for plant breeding programs. In this paper, we analysed the variation of eightExpand

Host-associated genetic structure of Mexican populations of the cabbage aphid Brevicoryne brassicae L. (Homoptera: Aphididae)
Phytophagous insects can use different host plant species across their geographic distribution. Within a locality, however, their feeding can be restricted to one or two plant species. If hostExpand

Flower morphometry of Rhizophora mangle (Rhizophoraceae): geographical variation in Mexican populations.
We explored the patterns of intra- and interpopulation variation in flower morphology of the red mangrove, Rhizophora mangle. Twelve populations in Mexico were studied: five from the Gulf of MexicoExpand

Female mating success and risk of pre‐reproductive death in a protandrous grasshopper
Numerous studies have assessed the adaptive value of protandry for males in several insect species, considering that male emergence is determined by female availability. However, the possibleExpand
