Tolypocladium cylindrosporum (Deuteromycotina: Moniliales), a fungal pathogen of the mosquito Aedes australis
The New Zealand strain of Tolypocladium cylindrosporum was cultured on Sabouraud dextrose agar medium under varying regimes of growth conditions. The isolate exhibited good tolerances to temperatureExpand
Tolypocladium cylindrosporum [Deuteromycetes,Moniliaceae] a new pathogen of mosquito larvae
Tolypocladium cylindrosporumGams isolated fromAedes australisErichson in New Zealand, and another strain isolated from soil in Czechoslovakia have shown pathogenicity for larvae of mosquitoes. TheExpand
Characterization of proteolytic activity associated with Bacillus thuringiensis var. darmstadiensis crystals
14C-labelled Bacillus thuringiensis var. darmstadiensis (Btd) crystals were used to detect crystal-associated protease activity. Optimal protease activity occurred at pH 8.4 and 9.7, and at 15 andExpand
Field studies on the introduction of the mosquito predator Toxorhynchites amboinensis (Diptera: Culicidae) into Fiji.
Toxorhynchites amboinensis was introduced into 2 areas of Fiji between February 1980 and 1981. A total of 1717 adult females were released at Wailoku Village and 400 females on Yanuca Island. NumbersExpand
Tolypocladium cylindrosporum (Deuteromycotina: Moniliales), a fungal pathogen of the mosquito Aedes australis
TLDR
Tests against field-collected non-target fauna indicated that T. cylindrosporum is non-specific in action, and species of daphnid, dixid larvae and copepods were all susceptible to infection at varying degrees. Expand
Efficacy of Bacillus thuringiensis var. israelensis as a biocontrol agent against larvae of Simuliidae (Diptera) in New Zealand
Abstract Preparations of Bacillus thuringiensis var. israelensis were toxic to 2 species of simuliid larvae in streams in the Dunedin area. The rate of recolonisation of treated streams depended onExpand
Multiplication of Whataroa virus in mosquitoes.
TLDR
The Whataroa virus appears to be well adapted to survive in the habitat in which it has been studied, and can be shown to leak into the hemocoel shortly after the insects have engorged but this does not account for the high proportion in which virus eventually generalizes. Expand
