Evidence of local evolution of tomato-infecting begomovirus species in West Africa: characterization of tomato leaf curl Mali virus and tomato yellow leaf crumple virus from Mali
TLDR
Three predominant symptom phenotypes were observed: TYLC/ToLC (stunted upright growth and upcurled leaves with interveinal yellowing and vein purpling), yellow leaf crumple and broccoli or bonsai (severe stunting and distorted growth), and begomovirus infection in plants with each of these symptom phenotype and no evidence of phytoplasma infection.

Annual population dynamics of mango fruit flies (Diptera: Tephritidae) in West Africa: socio-economic aspects, host phenology and implications for management
TLDR
D detection trapping of male flies with parapheromones is a useful indicator of field population levels and could be used to deploy control measures (IPM package) in a timely manner when the Economic Injury Level is reached. Expand
Inventory of the fruit fly species (Diptera: Tephritidae) linked to the mango tree in Mali and tests of integrated control
TLDR
The installation of a regional project for controlling mango tree Tephritidae in West Africa would be fundamental in the medium term to limit such an insect pest which itself prevails on the sub-region scale. Expand
