There are reasons to believe that mechanisms exist in the solar interior which lead to random density perturbations in the resonant region of the Large Mixing Angle solution to the solar neutrino problem. We find that, in the presence of these density perturbations, the best fit point in the (sin 2 2θ, ∆m 2) parameter space moves to smaller values, compared(More)
The phytoplasmas associated with bois noir (BN) tuf-type a are transmitted to grapevines by means of Hyalesthes obsoletus Signoret using Urtica dioica L. as the inoculum source. In the period 2003–2008, a research was carried out in six vineyards of northern Italy where a large amount of nettles in the ditches surrounding vineyards was detected. The aim was(More)
The effect of cover plants on arthropod functional biodiversity was investigated in a vineyard in Northern Italy, through a 3-year field experiment. The following six ground cover plants were tested: Sweet Alyssum; Phacelia; Buckwheat; Faba Bean; Vetch and Oat; control. Arthropods were sampled using different techniques, including collection of leaves,(More)
Stinging nettle (Urtica dioica L.) is the most important host plant for both phytoplasma associated with Bois noir disease of the grapevine and its vector Hyalesthes obsoletus Signoret (Hemiptera: Cixiidae). Vector abundance in vineyards is favored by stinging nettle growing in surrounding areas. Nettle control by herbicides or cutting can reduce vector(More)
Taking into account the stringent limits from helioseismology observations on possible matter density fluctuations described by magne-tohydrodynamics theory, we find the corresponding time variations of solar neutrino survival probability due to the resonant spin-flavor pre-cession phenomenon with amplitude of order O(10%). We discuss the physics potential(More)
