Phylogenetic relationships of coconut phytoplasmas and the development of specific oligonucleotide PCR primers.
Using the polymerase chain reaction the 16S rRNA genes and the 16S-23S spacer regions of phytoplasmas associated with lethal decline diseases of coconut palm (Cocos nucifera), were amplified fromExpand

Climate modeling with spherical geodesic grids
TLDR
A new approach to climate simulation uses geodesic grids generated from an icosahedron and could become on attractive alternative to current models. Expand

Transmission of a sugarcane yellow leaf phytoplasma by the delphacid planthopper Saccharosydne saccharivora, a new vector of sugarcane yellow leaf syndrome
During surveys of sugarcane fields in western and central Cuba from December 2001 to March 2003, the delphacid planthopper Saccharosydne saccharivora was the most prevalent of the AuchenorrhynchaExpand

Identification of potential vectors and alternative plant hosts for the phytoplasma associated with Napier grass stunt disease in Ethiopia
Napier grass (Pennisetum purpureum), the most important forage crop in East Africa, has recently been affected by a devastating disease named Napier Grass Stunt (NGS). A phytoplasma of group 16SrIExpand
