Evidence for field evolved resistance to newer insecticides in Spodoptera litura (Lepidoptera: Noctuidae) from Pakistan
TLDR
Paired wise comparisons of the log LC 50 s of insecticides tested for all the populations showed correlations among several insecticides, suggesting a cross-resistance mechanism, however, further studies are required to establish these mechanisms. Expand
Occurrence of insecticide resistance in field populations of Spodoptera litura (Lepidoptera: Noctuidae) in Pakistan
TLDR
Correlation analysis indicated that insecticides belonging to the same class such as organophosphate, carbamate or pyrethroid exhibited a positive cross-resistance in S. litura. Expand
Monitoring Insecticide Resistance of Helicoverpa armigera (Lepidoptera: Noctuidae) in Pakistan
TLDR
It is demonstrated that this insect pest has developed a moderate to high level of resistance to cypermethrin and monocrotophos compared with a susceptible laboratory strain, and a rotational strategy involving the pesticides having low resistance and different modes of action is recommended. Expand
Ethnobotanical appraisal and cultural values of medicinally important wild edible vegetables of Lesser Himalayas-Pakistan
TLDR
Patterns of wild edible plant usage depend mainly on socio-economic factors compare to climatic conditions or wealth of flora but during past few decades have harshly eroded due to change in the life style of the inhabitants. Expand

TLDR
The ethnobotanical results contain quantitative information on medicinal plants diversity documented for the first time in Balochistan province, Pakistan, and provides basis for the conservation of the local flora, its use as food and medicine and various socio-economic dimensions associated with the common people. Expand
Susceptibility of Helicoverpa armigera (Lepidoptera: Noctuidae) to new chemistries in Pakistan
TLDR
If used judiciously and in rotation, the new chemistries can restore the profitability of crop production by counteracting and preventing insecticide resistance in H. armigera and other pests in the future. Expand
Anopheline vectors and malaria transmission in eastern Afghanistan.
TLDR
Anopheline vectors and malaria transmission were studied in 2 river-irrigated, rice-growing districts of eastern Afghanistan from May 1995 to December 1996 to suggest the conventional view of A. culicifacies being the main rural vector and A. stephensi important only in urban settings needs to be reconsidered in western outreaches of the Indo-Pakistan subcontinent.
