Biological control consists of using one organism to attack another that may cause economic damage to crops. Integrated Pest Management (IPM) is a very common strategy. The white mold produced by Sclerotinia sclerotiorum (Lib.) causes considerable damage to bean crops. This fungus is a soil inhabitant, the symptoms of which are characterized by water-soaked(More)
Maize landraces derived from tropical germplasm represent an important source of genetic variability, which is currently poorly understood and under-exploited by Brazilian crop breeding programs. The aims of our study were to a) estimate the genetic diversity across 48 varieties of maize landraces cultivated at different locations in the States of Rio(More)
Alticinae has the greatest amount of biodiversity among the Chrysomelidae, with 40,000 described species, only 290 of which have been analyzed cytogenetically. The majority of studies refer to conventional staining and few species have been analyzed or have responded to differential staining methods. The aim of the present study was to describe an 18S rDNA(More)
The organization and mapping of multigene families can produce useful genetic markers, and its use may elucidate the mechanisms of karyotype variation and genomic organization in different groups of eukaryotes. To date, few species of Coleoptera have been analyzed using FISH for the location of multigene families. The purpose of this study was to use(More)
Thrips are small insects (0.5-3.0 mm) with distinct habits and life histories characterized by haplodiploid sex determination. In general, low levels of genetic diversity have been reported in haplodiploid insects, although most reports focus on the order Hymenoptera. Therefore, we used RAPD markers to evaluate the structure and both inter- and(More)
The aim of this study was to determine the Al concentration and the period of exposure of the roots of maize hybrids in minimal solution for efficient selection of genotypes that are Al-tolerant. Two experiments were performed (48 and 96 h of exposure) with increasing doses of Al in minimal solution; the block design was completely randomized in a(More)
