It is demonstrated that the tomato homolog of CORONATINE-INSENSITIVE1 (COI1), an F-box protein that is required for JA-signaled processes in Arabidopsis, regulates distinct developmental processes in different plants and suggests a role for JA in the promotion of glandular trichome–based defenses.
Managing Insect Resistance to Bacillus thuringiensis Toxins
Bacillus thuringiensis δ-endotoxins provide an alternative to chemical insecticides for controlling many species of pest insects and the discovery that insects can adapt to these toxins raises concerns about the long-term usefulness of B.t. toxins.
Global Pesticide Resistance in Arthropods
Global pesticide resistance in arthropods is studied to find out whether insecticide resistance can be passed off to animals through contact chemoreception and other mechanisms.
Defining Terms for Proactive Management of Resistance to Bt Crops and Pesticides
Recognizing that resistance is not “all or none” and that intermediate levels of resistance can have a continuum of effects on pest control, it is urged to publish and analyze resistance monitoring data in conjunction with data on management practices to accelerate progress in determining which actions will be most useful in response to specific data on the magnitude, distribution, and impact of resistance.

Despite continued predictions of dramatic growth for biopesticides due to US Food Quality Protection Act-induced cancellations of older insecticides, Bt use has remained relatively constant, even in niche markets where Bt has traditionally been relatively high.
Orchard Floor and Nitrogen Management Influences Soil and Water Quality and Tart Cherry Yields
Designing and implementing more productive, nutrient-efficient, and environmentally sound orchard management systems requires a better understanding of plant and soil responses to more biologically
Selection of a Colorado Potato Beetle (Coleoptera: Chrysomelidae) Strain Resistant to Bacillus thuringiensis
For the first time, resistance to the CRYIIIA coleopteran specific delta endotoxin of Bacillus thuringiensis var. san diego or tenebrionis is reported. Colorado potato beetles, Leptinotarsa
Inheritance of resistance to Bacillus thuringiensis subsp. tenebrionis CryIIIA delta-endotoxin in Colorado potato beetle (Coleoptera: Chrysomelidae).
Analysis of probit lines from the F1 reciprocal crosses indicated that B. thuringiensis delta-endotoxin resistance was inherited autosomaly without maternal effects, and Chi-square analysis of mortality responses of backcrossed offspring suggested that resistance might be caused by more than one locus.
