The Dynamics of Multiple Infection and the Evolution of Virulence
While for pathogen clones singly occupying a host it may pay to adopt a relatively avirulent host exploitation strategy, clones sharing a host have a conflict of interest that favors more virulentExpand

Biological control of two-spotted spider mites using phytoseiid predators
The searching behaviour of individual predators of four phytoseiid species ( Phytoseiulus persimilis , Amblyseius p o tentillae , Amblyseius bibens , Metaseiulus occidentalis ) is investigated inExpand

Differential Timing of Spider Mite-Induced Direct and Indirect Defenses in Tomato Plants1[w]
Through a combined metabolomics and transcriptomics approach we analyzed the events that took place during the first 5 d of infesting intact tomato (Lycopersicon esculentum) plants with spider mitesExpand

Jasmonic Acid Is a Key Regulator of Spider Mite-Induced Volatile Terpenoid and Methyl Salicylate Emission in Tomato1[w]
The tomato (Lycopersicon esculentum) mutant def-1, which is deficient in induced jasmonic acid (JA) accumulation upon wounding or herbivory, was used to study the role of JA in the direct andExpand

Plant strategies of manipulating predatorprey interactions through allelochemicals: Prospects for application in pest control
To understand the role of allelochemicals in predator-prey interactions it is not sufficient to study the behavioral responses of predator and prey. One should elucidate the origin of theExpand

Spider mites suppress tomato defenses downstream of jasmonate and salicylate independently of hormonal crosstalk
Plants respond to herbivory by mounting a defense. Some plant-eating spider mites (Tetranychus spp.) have adapted to plant defenses to maintain a high reproductive performance. From naturalExpand

A herbivore that manipulates plant defence
Phytopathogens and herbivores induce plant defences. Whereas there is evidence that some pathogens suppress these defences by interfering with signalling pathways involved in the defence, suchExpand

Life-history evolution of spider mites
A literature review of data on life histories of spider mites (Acari: Tetrany-chidae) under standardized conditions (25 ± 2°C) reveals a large amount of interspecific variation. The intrinsic rate ofExpand
