Phytochemicals of Brassicaceae in plant protection and human health--influences of climate, environment and agronomic practice.
In this review, we provide an overview of the role of glucosinolates and other phytochemical compounds present in the Brassicaceae in relation to plant protection and human health. Current knowledgeExpand

Scale-dependent responses in cabbage herbivores affect attack rates in spatially heterogeneous systems
Herbivorous insects face a dilemma when selecting suitable hosts in a complex environment, and their sensory capability may often reduce the female capacity for proper selection. As a consequence,Expand

Patch size effects are more important than genetic diversity for plant–herbivore interactions in Brassica crops
1. Considerable evidence suggests that the diversity within plant communities may strongly affect the strength of species interactions, but the majority of studies only considered interspecificExpand

Combined Effect of Intercropping and Turnip Root Fly (Delia floralis) Larval Feeding on the Glucosinolate Concentrations in Cabbage Roots and Foliage
The effects of plant competition and herbivory on glucosinolate concentrations in cabbage root and foliage were investigated in a cabbage-red clover intercropping system. Cabbage plants were grownExpand

Habitat selection of a parasitoid mediated by volatiles informing on host and intraguild predator densities
To locate and evaluate host patches before oviposition, parasitoids of herbivorous insects utilize plant volatiles and host-derived cues, but also evaluate predator-derived infochemicals to reduceExpand

Evaluating the enemies hypothesis in a clover‐cabbage intercrop: effects of generalist and specialist natural enemies on the turnip root fly (Delia floralis)
1 The relative importance of the resource concentration hypothesis and the enemies hypothesis was investigated for the turnip root fly Delia floralis in a cabbage–red clover intercropping systemExpand

Neighbouring monocultures enhance the effect of intercropping on the turnip root fly (Delia floralis)
Knowledge of insect behaviour is essential for accurately interpreting studies of diversification and to develop diversified agroecosystems that have a reliable pest‐suppressive effect. In thisExpand

Effects of intercropping on the life cycle of the turnip root fly (Delia floralis)
The turnip root fly (Delia floralis) is a pest insect in the northern temperate regions of the world. If uncontrolled, it can cause severe problems in the production of brassica crops. This thesisExpand

The Establishment of Genetic Counselling in Sweden: 1940–1980
Genetic counselling in Sweden may be traced to the eugenics movement in the early twentieth century. A rudimentary form of what we might call genetic counselling today was practised within the stateExpand

Effects of plant competition and herbivore density on the development of the turnip root fly (Delia floralis) in an intercropping system
In this study, interactive effects of plant competition and herbivory on plant quality and herbivore development were examined in a greenhouse experiment where cabbage plants [Brassica oleracea L.Expand
