Phylogeny of parasitiform mites (Acari) based on rRNA.
Acari (mites and ticks) form one the most diverse lineages of arthropods, but basal relationships in the group are still poorly understood. The current study addresses this issue for one of its twoExpand
Multivariate Analysis of Morphological Variation in Two Cryptic Species of Sancassania (Acari: Acaridae) from Costa Rica
Abstract Populations of Sancassania mites were collected in Costa Rica from scarabaeid and passalid beetles and cultured. The populations proved to be reproductively incompatible due to postzygoticExpand
Collection and detection of eriophyoid mites
Methods for collecting and detecting eriophyoid mites are crucial components in research, taxonomical and biological studies, and control programs for these organisms. Their small size, theirExpand
Phylogeny of infraorder Sejina (Acari: Mesostigmata)
Phylogenetic relationships among the families in the infraorder Sejina and the position of Sejina relative to other infraorders of Mesostigmata are re-examined based on molecular and morphologicalExpand
Impact of No-till Cover Cropping of Italian Ryegrass on Above and Below Ground Faunal Communities Inhabiting a Soybean Field with Emphasis on Soybean Cyst Nematodes.
Two field trials were conducted between 2008 and 2010 in Maryland to evaluate the ability of an Italian ryegrass (IR) (Lolium multiflorum) cover crop to reduce populations of plant-parasiticExpand

A new species of Sejidae (Acari: Mesostigmata) from the Southeastern USA
Abstract A new sejid mite, Sejus carolinensis n. sp. (Acari: Sejidae) is described for all instars from three different localities in the Southeastern USA. Special attention is paid to developmentalExpand
New classification of the family Sejidae (Acari: Mesostigmata) based on morphological analyses
Relationships in the family Sejidae are examined based on analysis of 74 morphological characters. Synonymy of Willmannia Balogh and Liroaspis Banks with Sejus Koch is supported, while synonymy ofExpand
Extraction of tannin from gall nuts in a rotary pulsating apparatus
The present work is devoted to a study of the process of extracting tannin from gall nuts in a rotary pulsating apparatus. In operating such apparatus intense stream turbulence, pulsation, andExpand
