Identification and characterization of a new vitivirus from grapevine
TvAQ7 and TvP15 should be considered isolates of a new species of the genus Vitivirus, and both isolates are probably genetic variants of the new species, and it is proposed to name this virus grapevine virus E (GVE).
Effect of Chitin in Shrimp Meal on Growth Performance and Digestibility in Growing Broilers
In order to clarify whether chitin in shrimp meal (SM) affects growth performance of broilers adversely, body weight gain, feed intake, digestibility and nitrogen retention were measured in broilers
Occurrence of a novel strain of Scirtothrips dorsalis (Thysanoptera: Thripidae) in Japan and development of its molecular diagnostics
A molecular phylogenetic analysis using mitochondrial cytochrome c oxidase subunit I sequences revealed that the capsicum-associated populations were genetically different from Japanese native strains and were closely related to Southeast Asian populations.
Effectiveness and pesticide susceptibility of the pyrethroid-resistant predatory mite Amblyseius womersleyi in the integrated pest management of tea pests
To prevent the resurgence of the Kanzawa spider mite, Tetranychus kanzawai Kishida, on tea plants caused by the application of synthetic pyrethroid insecticides (SP), an SP-resistant strain of the
Evaluation of the In Vivo Kinetics and Biostimulatory Effects of Subcutaneously Injected Hyaluronic Acid Filler
This study demonstrates that the total volume is maintained long-term by replacing part of the injected hyaluronic acid filler with autologous tissues.
Olfactory response of the anthocorid predatory bug Orius sauteri to thrips‐infested eggplants
In light of the low tolerable thrips density of eggplant, it is necessary to confirm whether artificial treatments with chemicals induce the emission of herbivore‐induced plant volatiles that can attract O. sauteri and prolong its residence time on the leaf.
Female Sex Pheromone of Glossosphecia romanovi (Lepidoptera: Sesiidae): Identification and Field Attraction
The GC-EAD and GC-MS analyses of the pheromone gland extract revealed that the female moths produced the alcohol and acetate in a ratio of about 20:1, in addition to three other minor structure-related components.
Introduction of Non-native Predatory Mites for Pest Control and its Risk Assessment in Japan
The risks of the non-target effect caused by the release of these introduced non-native phytoseiid mites are estimated by using the risk indexes proposed by Mochizuki (2010), and the results of monitoring the species considered at risk from therelease of non-natives are presented.
