Comparative Life Histories and Predation Types: Are Neoseiulus californicus and N. fallacis (Acari: Phytoseiidae) Similar Type II Selective Predators of Spider Mites?
TLDR
Traits of immatures were more discriminating than traits of female adults in this study; both trait types should be included in predation rating systems.
Corn borers (Lepidoptera : Noctuidae; Crambidae) in Northwestern Spain: Population dynamics and distribution
TLDR
The objectives of this work were to complete the study of the incidence of corn borers in northwestern Spain, to study the behavior of the two species ofCorn borers inside the plant, and to relate the abundance of borers with climatic factors.
Neoseiulus californicus (McGregor) and Neoseiulus fallacis (Garman): larval responsesto prey and humidity, nymphal feeding drive and nymphal predation on phytoseiid eggs
TLDR
Data indicate that N. californicus may be a less specialized predator of spider mites than is N. fallacis, and nymphs of both mites showed similar drives to feed 1–2>h after being held 12–48 h without food and then given eggs of T. urticae.
Hybridization between Ischnura graellsii (Vander Linder) and 2. elegans (Rambur) (Odonata: Coenagrionidae): are they different species?
TLDR
Although hybridization between both taxa is common, it is suggested maintaining the specific status for both phenotypes because they show incipient reproductive isolation, as it is reported in the literature.
Mating, cross-mating and related behaviours of Neoseiulus californicus and Neoseiulus fallacis (Acari: Phytoseiidae)
TLDR
Overall, life-history data show that these two mites are distinct species, but that their males are promiscuous in tending and mating.
Malformations produced by Varroa jacobsoni on Apis mellifera in the province of Buenos Aires, Argentina
TLDR
Les malformations causees par Varroa jacobsoni chez Apis mellifera dans la province of Buenos Aires, Argentine ont ete etudiees chez des abeilles recemment ecloses provenant d'une population locale.
Effect of maize pith free phenols on larval growth and development of Sesamia nonagrioides (Lepidoptera: Noctuidae)
TLDR
This research was supported by the National Plan for Research and Development of Spain (AGL2001-3736, AGL2003-0961) and the Autonomous Government of Galicia (PGIDIT04PXIC40303PN).
Resistance of Kale Populations to Lepidopterous Pests in Northwestern Spain
TLDR
Correlation coefficients among damage traits show that general appearance rating may be an useful indicator of resistance to lepidopterous pests although further research is needed.
Parasitoids incidence and diversity on maize stem borers Sesamia nonagrioides Lefèbvre and Ostrinia nubilalis Hübner in NW Spain
TLDR
A very low parasitoid natural control on maize borers, in hybrid corn crops grown at the province of Pontevedra was found.
Within- and Between-Plant Dispersal and Distributions of Neoseiulus californicus and N. fallacis (Acari: Phytoseiidae) in Simulated Bean and Apple Plant Systems
TLDR
Results of both within- and between-plant dispersal studies supported the hypothesis that N. californicus has dispersal traits more like those of a generalist predator of spider mites than does N. fallacis .
