Mayflies (Ephemeroptera) of the far western United States. Part 2: Oregon
Abstract The mayfly fauna of Oregon consists of 142 species in 45 genera among 11 families. Previous data and new data (from 20 major collections) are given for all species and include first
The Mayflies (Ephemeroptera) of the Southeastern United States
ABSTRACT An annotated checklist consisting of 300 species is provided for the mayfly fauna of the southeastern United States [Alabama (139 spp.), Arkansas (118 spp.), Florida (77 spp.), Georgia (155
Mayflies (Ephemeroptera) of the Far Western United States. Part 3: California
Abstract The mayfly fauna of California consists of 155 species in 44 genera among 15 families. Previous data and new data (from 23 major collections) are given for all species and include first
Evaluation of Mayfly Species Originally Described as Baetis Leach (Ephemeroptera: Baetidae) from California
Abstract Eight species of mayflies described in Baetis Leach from California are evaluated for validity, generic classification, and distribution. Taxonomic status quo is maintained for the
Insecta, Ephemeroptera: Transcontinental range extensions in western North America.
Among the 631 valid species of Ephemeroptera (mayflies) that are presently known from North America (McCafferty 2007), relatively few have been known as having more or less continuous (non disjunct)
Genetic Basis for Varied Levels of Injury to Sweet Corn Hybrids from Three Cytochrome P450-metabolized Herbicides
The objective of this study was to determine if alleles affecting herbicide sensitivity (e.g., cytochrome P450 alleles) were associated with differences in levels of injury to sweet corn hybrids in trials and to classify hybrids as homozygous or heterozygous for alleles conditioning herbicide tolerance.
Using Soil-Applied Fungicides to Manage Phytophthora Crown and Root Rot on Summer Squash.
Soil application methods, including soil drench and drip chemigation, should be evaluated when fungicides are registered for soilborne disease control, because these methods provide better control of Phytophthora crown and root rot than foliar application.
Increased Severity of Foliar Diseases of Sweet Corn Infected with Maize Dwarf Mosaic and Sugarcane Mosaic Viruses.
The results of this experiment demonstrate the importance of breeding for MDM resistance, not only to control this important viral disease of sweet corn, but also to lower the potential for detrimental effects from several other foliar diseases that often are of minor importance on sweet corn in the absence of MDM.
Tests of Current Hypotheses of Mayfly (Ephemeroptera) Phylogeny Using Molecular (18s rDNA) Data
The molecular data support the hypothesis that Pisciforma and Setisura comprise a monophyletic sister group to the Furcatergalia, rather than the hypothesis That SetisURA and Furc Catergalia comprise aMonophyletics group stemming from the PISCiforma.
