The flavonoid rutin is recognized as playing an important role in the protection of plants against lepidopterans. Bioassays with this compound are generally carried out using artificial diets. Proteins of high energy value, such as casein, are important ingredients of insect artificial diets as a source of essential amino acids. However, such proteins can(More)
The aim of this study was to evaluate the prevalence and need for treatment of temporomandibular disorders (TMD) in students living in Bauru, Brazil. The role of occlusal and emotional factors was also addressed. The presence and severity of TMD was determined by using a self-reported anamnestic questionnaire composed of 10 questions regarding common TMD(More)
To test the hypothesis that the plant stress related elicitor cis-jasmone (cJ) provides protection in soybean pods against the seed-sucking stink bug pest, Euschistus heros, the growth of E. heros on cJ-treated pods was investigated using three soybean cultivars differing in insect susceptibility, i.e. BRS 134 (susceptible), IAC 100 (resistant) and Dowling(More)
In Brazil, the silverleaf whitefly (SLW), Bemisia tabaci biotype B, is a serious soybean pest. SLW management is difficult and new control strategies, such as host–plant resistance, are required. Herein, we aimed to evaluate the biology of SLW, from eggs to adults, on seven soybean cultivars. The emergence of adult insects was monitored daily.(More)
