Biology and phenology of the eriophyid mite, Floracarus perrepae, on its native host in Australia, Old World climbing fern, Lygodium microphyllum
Two species of predatory mites and a species of Tydeidae, along with the pathogen Hirsutella thompsonii, had significant effects on all life stages of F. perrepae, with populations peaking when temperatures were cool and soil moisture levels were highest.
Current status of hazelnut mites in Turkey.
The hazelnut (Corylus avellana L.) agroecosystem includes several groups of harmful and beneficial organisms, and the distribution and economic importance of each species is given.
An ultrastructural study of the relationship between the mite Floracarus perrepae Knihinicki & Boczek (Acariformes: Eriophyidae) and the fern Lygodium microphyllum (Lygodiaceae).
The structure and depth of stylet penetration by the mite, and the thickness of the epidermal cell wall of L. microphyllum, do not appear to account for the mites' differential ability to induce leaf rolling in its co-adapted host from south-east Queensland but not in the invasive genotype of the fern in Florida.
