Transmission of the Diachasmimorpha longicaudata rhabdovirus (DlRhV) to wasp offspring: an ultrastructural analysis.
During oviposition, the parasitic wasp Diachasmimorpha longicaudata introduces an entomopoxvirus (DlEPV) and a rhabdovirus (DlRhV) into larvae of its tephritid fruit fly host Anastrepha suspensa.Expand

Feeding and Development of Cydia pomonella (Lepidoptera: Tortricidae) Larvae on Apple Leaves
Abstract We present leaf consumption, maximum body weight, head capsule width, and testicular ultrastructure of four sequential instars in codling moth reared solely on apple leaves of HoneycrispExpand

Sigma virus and male reproductive success in Drosophila melanogaster
The risk of disease transmission can affect female mating rate, and thus sexual conflict. Furthermore, the interests of a sexually transmitted organism may align or diverge with those of either sex,Expand

Virulence evolution in a host-parasite system in the absence of viral evolution.
QUESTION How does virulence evolve in the Drosophila melanogaster/sigma virus (DMelSV) system? ORGANISMS Drosophila melanogaster (host) and DMelSV (parasite). EMPIRICAL METHODS ArtificialExpand

Effect of monosodium glutamate on apple leaf consumption by codling moth larvae
We have demonstrated that larvae of codling moth, Cydia pomonella (L) can successfully complete their first instar when fed apple leaves instead of fruit. Larvae fed leaves after hatching maximizedExpand

Toxoplasma gondii transmission by artificial insemination in sheep with experimentally contaminated frozen semen.
Toxoplasma gondii is a parasite considered one of the major causes of reproductive problems in sheep. Furthermore, the presence of the agent in ram semen urges the possibility of sexual transmissionExpand

Role of Host-Driven Mutagenesis in Determining Genome Evolution of Sigma Virus (DMelSV; Rhabdoviridae) in Drosophila melanogaster
Abstract Sigma virus (DMelSV) is ubiquitous in natural populations of Drosophila melanogaster. Host-mediated, selective RNA editing of adenosines to inosines (ADAR) may contribute to control of viralExpand

Project # AE-0143 ( WSU # 6408 ) Project title : Feeding enhancements for insecticides targeting neonate lepidopteran larvae
Preface by John J. Brown: “Dr. Pszczolkowski has taken this research project from an initial finding that Sweet’n low® stimulates neonate codling moth larvae to consume apple leaves to preliminaryExpand
