Ethnobotanical survey in Canhane village, district of Massingir, Mozambique: medicinal plants and traditional knowledge
The data compiled in this study show the social importance of the surveyed plants being a contribution to the documentation of PGR at the national and regional level. Expand
Lethal and Sublethal Effects of Various Pesticides on Trichogramma achaeae (Hymenoptera: Trichogrammatidae)
Chlorpyrifos was the most lethal among these pesticides and killed all females in less than 24 h and affected the biological parameters of T. achaeae to varying degrees, and can be recommend the use of chlorantraniliprole and B. thuringiensis to control Lepidoptera. Expand
Potential of Trichogramma achaeae (Hymenoptera: Trichogrammatidae) in Biological Control of Tuta absoluta (Lepidoptera: Gelechiidae) in Azorean Greenhouse Tomato Crops
Tuna absoluta (Meyrick) (Lepidoptera: Gelechiidae) is an important pest of tomato crops and the parasitoid Trichogramma achaeae Nagaraja and Nagarkatti has been recommended as a possible biological control agent of this invasive pest. Expand
Natural occurrence of Wolbachia-infected and uninfected Trichogramma species in tomato fields in Portugal
As Wolbachia-infected thelytokous strains exist for T. evanescens, the most abundant Trichogramma species naturally occurring in the tomato fields of the Ribatejo region, this species offers interesting and powerful options for biological control of lepidopteran pests in processing tomato in this region.

Is the parasitization capacity of Trichogramma cordubensis influenced by the age of the females?
The results show that the parasitization capacity of ageing T. cordubensis females changes as they become time‐limited, and the consequences for biological control programs are discussed. Expand
Susceptibility of Pseudaletia unipuncta (Lepidoptera: Noctuidae) to Entomopathogenic Nematodes (Rhabditida: Steinernematidae and Heterorhabditidae) Isolated in the Azores: Effect of Nematode Strain
The armyworm, Pseudaletia unipuncta (Haworth), is a serious pest to the Azores’s pastures and is the most susceptible to the A48 strain, followed by the fifth instars, while the sixth instars were the less susceptible, with LD50 values of 26.2. Expand
Host Age of Pseudaletia unipuncta (Lepidoptera: Noctuidae) and Parasitic Capacity of Glyptapanteles militaris (Hymenoptera: Braconidae)
The results indicate that the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th instars of P. unipuncta were more suitable for G. militaris parasitism, because these instars provide a high percentage of hosts that will be successfully parasitized and they also produce large numbers of parasitoids per host. Expand
