A review of relationships between interspecific competition and invasions in fruit flies (Diptera: Tephritidae)
The potential importance of interspecific competition and competitive displacement among different tephritid species is evaluated in the context of recent invasions. Expand
Survival and development of different life stages of three Ceratitis spp. (Diptera: Tephritidae) reared at five constant temperatures
Abstract Fruit flies (Diptera: Tephritidae) are the most damaging pests on fruit crops on Réunion Island, near Madagascar. Survival and development of the Mediterranean fruit fly, CeratitiscapitataExpand
Climatic niche partitioning following successive invasions by fruit flies in La Réunion.
The tolerance to climatic factors and field distribution of four polyphagous fruit flies of La Réunion Island is evaluated and field distributions agree with the predictions based on this study of humidity combined with previous data on the effects of temperature. Expand
Biological control of Diaphorina citri (Hemiptera: Psyllidae) in Guadeloupe by imported Tamarixia radiata (Hymenoptera: Eulophidae)
Quite favorable biological characteristics play a great part in explaining the excellent effec- tiveness of T. radiata in biological control programmes against D. citri. Expand
Importance of competition mechanisms in successive invasions by polyphagous tephritids in La Reunion.
In agreement with the hypothesis that invasion is competition-limited, the competitive hierarchy coincided with the temporal sequence of establishment on the island, i.e., each newly established species tended to be competitively dominant over previously established ones. Expand
Survival and development of different life stages of Bactrocera zonata (Diptera: Tephritidae) reared at five constant temperatures compared to other fruit fly species
This species is native from India and has been captured in traps in California (Carey & Dowell,1989), from where it has been eradicated. Expand
Aedes (Diptera: Culicidae) Vectors of Arboviruses in Mayotte (Indian Ocean): Distribution Area and Larval Habitats
Arbovirus surveillance programs should focus, as a priority, on areas where this vector is present because of a higher risk of emergence of an epidemic source of arboviruses. Expand
Progressive Decrease in Aedes aegypti Distribution in Reunion Island Since the 1900s
The results show that the number of breeding sites with Ae. Expand
Population genetics of the potentially invasive African fruit fly species, Ceratitis rosa and Ceratitis fasciventris (Diptera: Tephritidae)
The microsatellite variability data from C. rosa and C. fasciventris support the hypothesis of an east African origin of the Ceratitis spp. Expand
Fopius arisanus, an egg-pupal parasitoid of Tephritidae. Overview.
Fopius arisanus (Hym., Braconidae) is an egg-pupal parasitoid of tephritid fruit flies. Since its introduction to Hawaii in the late 1940s, it has caused substantial reduction of fruit flyExpand
