An Overview of the Red Imported Fire Ant (Hymenoptera: Formicidae) in Mainland China
It has been predicted that most of mainland China is viable habitat for red imported fire ants, including 25 of 31 provinces, and the probable northern limit of expansion reaches Shandong, Tianjing, south Henan, and Shanxi provinces.
The potential distribution of an invasive mealybug Phenacoccus solenopsis and its threat to cotton in Asia
Seasonal and annual population growth data and the distribution of the mealybug worldwide, analyzed using the CLIMEX model indicated that tropical regions worldwide were highly suitable for P. solenopsis, and when irrigation was factored into the simulation, the potential distribution of P. Solenopsis expanded dramatically, indicating that it presents a great economic threat to cotton in Asia and other parts of the world.
Invasion of Colorado potato beetle, Leptinotarsa decemlineata, in China: dispersal, occurrence, and economic impact
The current distribution of Colorado potato beetle is determined and its dispersal routes are reconstructed, and the economic impact of CPB in China is estimated to be 3.2 million USD.
Does Global Warming Increase Establishment Rates of Invasive Alien Species? A Centurial Time Series Analysis
These findings suggest that the perceived increase in establishments of invasive alien insects can be explained only in part by an increase in introduction rate or propagule pressure, suggesting that global warming is another driver that could favor worldwide bioinvasions.
Mapping Potential Distribution of Spodoptera frugiperda (Lepidoptera: Noctuidae) in Central Asia
The Receiver Operating Characteristic (ROC) curve test presented herein provided reliable evidence that the MaxEnt model has a high degree of accuracy in predicting the invasion of S. frugiperda in Central Asia.
Impact of alfalfa/cotton intercropping and management on some aphid predators in China
The result indicated that the increment of population of cotton aphids was significantly slower in cotton grown in plots which bordered the alfalfa‐cutting areas than in the uncut control areas (CK), while the rate of increase of spiders and lacewings were significantly faster in cotton growing in plots bordering on the cut areas than CK.

Predictive models developed in this study present the global risk of establishment of codling moth, and can be used for monitoring potential introductions ofcodling moth in different countries and by policy makers and trade negotiators in making science-based decisions.
Antioxidant and alpha-glucosidase inhibitory activities of isoflavonoids from the rhizomes of Ficus tikoua Bur
Abstract A new unique isoflavone derivatives with a cyclic-monoterpene-substituent, ficusin C (1), together with five known compounds (2–6), were isolated from the rhizomes of Ficus tikoua. Their…
Progress on monitoring and control of the codling moth, Cydia pomonella (L.)
The codling moth Cydia pomonella (L.) is a notorious invasive pest that causes severe damage to global apple crops with the proportion of fruit damaged on apple and other fruit trees often reaching…
