A Review on the Toxicity and Non-Target Effects of Macrocyclic Lactones in Terrestrial and Aquatic Environments
TLDR
The results of this review clearly demonstrate that regarding environmental impacts many macrocyclic lactones are substances of high concern particularly with larval instars of invertebrates. Expand
Fecal residues of veterinary parasiticides: nontarget effects in the pasture environment.
TLDR
The nature and extent of the effects of veterinary parasiticides in dung of treated livestock, and how greater awareness of these nontarget effects has resulted in regulatory changes in the registration of veterinary products are described are described. Expand
PLANT GENETIC DETERMINANTS OF ARTHROPOD COMMUNITY STRUCTURE AND DIVERSITY
TLDR
The overall patterns of community differences remained remarkably stable, suggesting that the genetic differences among cross types exert a strong organizing influence on the arthropod community, and support the extended phenotype concept. Expand
Extent and patterns of hybridization among the three species of Populus that constitute the riparian forest of southern Alberta, Canada
TLDR
Given its unique nature in terms of extent, health, and composition, and given the effect of plant hybrid zones on the ecology and evolution of their associated organisms, it is hoped that the current study will facilitate future research targeting conservation of this riparian forest in its full genetic complexity. Expand
PLANT HYBRID ZONES AFFECT BIODIVERSITY: TOOLS FOR A GENETIC‐BASED UNDERSTANDING OF COMMUNITY STRUCTURE
TLDR
These studies suggest that genetic-based plant traits affect the distribution of many species and that the variation in hybrids can be used as tools to examine the genetic components of community structure and biodiversity. Expand
Overview and relevance of Wolbachia bacteria in biocontrol research
TLDR
Greater awareness of Wolbachia, an unsuspected, but potentially important, component of many biocontrol programs, is recommended to heighten awareness of these bacteria and to recommend that all arthropod species in biocOntrol programs be screened for these bacteria. Expand
Endectocide residues affect insect attraction to dung from treated cattle: implications for toxicity tests

  • 1 December 2007
TLDR
This study shows that endectocide residues can affect the number of insects attracted to colonize and oviposit in dung, and the emergence of their offspring from field‐colonized dung of untreated vs. endECTocide‐treated cattle should not be used as a measure of residue toxicity per se, but rather as a measures of ‘insect activity’. Expand
The "Hybrid Bridge" Hypothesis: Host Shifting via Plant Hybrid Swarms
TLDR
The hybrid bridge hypothesis argues that the presence of plant hybrid intermediates facilitates host shifting by herbivores such that host shifting is more likely to occur in their presence than in their absence. Expand
Male Development Time Influences the Strength of Wolbachia-Induced Cytoplasmic Incompatibility Expression in Drosophila melanogaster
TLDR
It is shown thatmale development time can greatly influence CI expression in D. melanogaster and when male development time is controlled, it is possible to obtain consistently high levels of CI expression, which will benefit future studies that wish to use this species as a model host to unravel CI mechanisms.
