Factors affecting the occurrence of entomopathogenic fungi in soils of Slovakia as revealed using two methods
Aphid-pathogenic Entomophthorales (their taxonomy, biology and ecology)
The aim of this review is to cover the present status of knowledge about the natural enemies of aphids and to stimulate an interest of insect pathologists in this group of entomopathogenic fungi.
Observations on the Occurrence of Entomophthorales Infecting Aphids (Aphidoidea) in Slovakia
The species spectrum of entomophthoralean fungi parasiting aphids was investigated in Slovakia and Pandora neoaphidis (Remaudière et Hennebert) Humber was the predominant fungal pathogen and could effectively reduce aphid populations.
THE INFLUENCE OF ULTRAVIOLET LIGHT ON PATHOGENICITY OF ENTOMOPATHOGENIC FUNGUS BEAUVERIA BASSIANA (BALSAMO) VUILLEMIN TO THE EUROPEAN CORN BORER, OSTRINIA NUBILALIS HBN. (LEPIDOPTERA: CRAMBIDAE)
It was ascertained that UV light exposition significantly influenced the mortality effect of B. bassiana isolates to O. nubilalis larvae and variant SK99C showed the highest level of infectivity.
Entomophthoralean fungi associated with the common nettle aphid (Microlophium carnosum Buckton) and the potential role of nettle patches as reservoirs for the pathogens in landscape

The potential of nettle patches as natural reservoirs for pathogens in the agroecosystem is discussed and horizontal transmission of infection between the common nettle aphid and different aphid species co-occurring in landscape is proved.
The first detection of leafhopper Scaphoideus titanus Ball (Hemiptera, Cicadellidae) in Slovakia.
The first detection of leafhopper Scaphoideus titanus Ball (Hemiptera, Cicadellidae) in Slovakia is reported, with higher abundance of S. titanus was detected in the vineyards with biological control.
Flea beetles (Chrysomelidae: Alticinae) species occurring on Amaranthus spp. in Slovakia.
Occurrence and abundance of flea beetle species associated with Amaranthus spp. was studied in Slovakia with the aim to assess their potential as biological control agents. Insects were collected by…
The responses of soil nematode communities to Bt maize cultivation at four field sites across Europe
Phylogenetic structure and habitat associations of Beauveria species isolated from soils in Slovakia.
Biological control of pigweeds (Amaranthus retroflexus, L. A. Powellii, S. Watson and A. bouchonii Thell.) with phytophagous insects, fungal pathogens and crop management
The aim of this subproject of COST action 816 is to investigate the possibilities of classical and inundative biological control of Amaranthus spp.
