Transmission of the Diachasmimorpha longicaudata rhabdovirus (DlRhV) to wasp offspring: an ultrastructural analysis.
Feeding and Development of Cydia pomonella (Lepidoptera: Tortricidae) Larvae on Apple Leaves
A study of testicular ultrastructure revealed that feeding codling moth larvae exclusively on apple leaves allowed formation of testes, but also triggered an intense, abnormal autophagocytosis that caused premature senescence of this tissue.

Titre did respond to selection in the biparental regime, although both high and control lines both demonstrated increased titre, while the titre of the low lines did not change.
Effect of monosodium glutamate on apple leaf consumption by codling moth larvae
It is demonstrated that larvae of codling moth, Cydia pomonella, can successfully complete their first instar when fed apple leaves instead of fruit, and monosodium glutamate (MSG) increased feeding on leaves bycodling moth larvae.
Toxoplasma gondii transmission by artificial insemination in sheep with experimentally contaminated frozen semen.
Role of Host-Driven Mutagenesis in Determining Genome Evolution of Sigma Virus (DMelSV; Rhabdoviridae) in Drosophila melanogaster
In DMelSV, host mutagenesis is constraining viral evolution both within and between hosts, and there is evidence of mutations segregating within hosts, hereafter referred to as hypervariable sites.

Viral infection may provide males an advantage in sperm competition, or, possibly, females may preferentially use infected sperm in sexual conflict in Drosophila melanogaster.

Project # AE-0143 ( WSU # 6408 ) Project title : Feeding enhancements for insecticides targeting neonate lepidopteran larvae
This research project has taken this research project from an initial finding that Sweet’n low® stimulates neonate codling moth larvae to consume apple leaves to preliminary field studies using monosodium glutamate in Washington apples and California walnuts.
