Plant–eriophyoid mite interactions: cellular biochemistry and metabolic responses induced in mite-injured plants. Part I
TLDR
In future, elucidation of the pathways from eriophyoid mite damage to plant gene activation will be necessary to clarify plant responses and to explain variation in plant tissue damage at the feeding and adjacent sites. Expand
Mites and ticks (Acari).
TLDR
Most of the mite species are inconspicuous and data regarding invasive species and distribution range is only partially available, so more research is needed for a better understanding of the ecological and economic effects of introduced Acari. Expand
Cryptic speciation within Phytoptus avellanae s.l. (Eriophyoidea: Phytoptidae) revealed by molecular data and observations on molting Tegonotus-like nymphs
TLDR
It is shown that Hazelnut big bud mite represents a complex of two cryptic species: one that lives and reproduces in buds causing their enlargement (‘big buds’) and drying, whereas the other is a vagrant living on leaves, under bud scales and in catkins. Expand
Phenotypic variability in five Aceria spp. (Acari: Prostigmata: Eriophyoidea) inhabiting Cirsium species (Asteraceae) in Serbia
TLDR
Analysis of qualitative traits using SEM confirmed results obtained from the analysis of morphometric features and revealed significant differences in 23 commonly used morphological traits as well as four additional traits related to the prodorsal shield design. Expand
Anatomical Injury Induced by the Eriophyid Mite Aceria anthocoptes on the Leaves of Cirsium arvense
TLDR
The rust mite injuries extend to epidermal cells on both leaf surfaces and to those of deeper mesophyll layers on young leaves of experimentally infested plants, and the mite’s potential as a biological control agent of C. arvense is discussed. Expand
The present knowledge and new records of phytoseiid and tydeid mites (Acari: Phytoseiidae, Tydeidae) for the fauna of Serbia and Montenegro.
TLDR
Thirty two species of phytoseiids and six species of tydeids are known from Serbia and Montenegro and five of them are recorded for the first time. Expand
Basal divergence of Eriophyoidea (Acariformes, Eupodina) inferred from combined partial COI and 28S gene sequences and CLSM genital anatomy
TLDR
The results of this study suggest that the superfamily Eriophyoidea comprises basal paraphyletic pentasetacines (Loboquintus and Pentasetacus), and two large monophyletic groups: Eriophyidae s.l.str. Expand
The importance of cryptic species and subspecific populations in classic biological control of weeds: a North American perspective
TLDR
The existence of host races or cryptic species may greatly increase the number of prospective biological control agents available, however, it may also create new challenges for governmental regulation. Expand
Plant–eriophyoid mite interactions: specific and unspecific morphological alterations. Part II
TLDR
The diversity of plant malformations, such as galls, non-distortive feeding effects and complex symptoms induced by eriophyoids and/or pathogens vectored by them, is analysed and summarised. Expand
Morphological variation in different populations of Aceria anthocoptes (Acari: Eriophyoidea) associated with the Canada thistle, Cirsium arvense, in Serbia
TLDR
Canonical discriminant analysis showed that the trait which best discriminates the populations of A. anthocoptes is the number of dorsal annuli, and it was not possible to ascribe morphological differences to the impact of the host plant. Expand
