Patterns of Variation in the Seasonal Dynamics of Listronotus maculicollis (Coleoptera: Curculionidae) Populations on Golf Course Turf
TLDR
Variation was greater by year than by site in terms of overall shape of the fluctuation curves, relative abundance of overwintered to spring and summer adults, population synchrony, and number of generations. Expand

Development and Evaluation of Degree-Day Models for Acrolepiopsis assectella (Lepidoptera: Acrolepiidae) Based on Hosts and Flight Patterns
TLDR
Evaluating the development of the US A. assectella population in the laboratory and commercial onion fields concluded that this model can help growers to implement appropriate management strategies for different life stages in a timely manner and lessen damage by this new invasive pest. Expand
Linking the spatio‐temporal distribution of an edaphic crane fly to its heterogeneous soil environment
TLDR
The abiotic (soil moisture) and biotic (plant community) factors defining a continuous turfgrass environment to the temporal population structure and spatial distribution of Tipula paludosa ontogenetic stages across 3 years of investigation are related. Expand
Design of an arboreal shade project to control aquatic plant growth
Shading of the Avon River with trees has been considered as one means of controlling the growth of nuisance aquatic plants during the summer months. The design of a shade tree planting project isExpand
