Invasive phytophagous pests arising through a recent tropical evolutionary radiation: the Bactrocera dorsalis complex of fruit flies.
The Bactrocera dorsalis complex of tropical fruit flies (Diptera: Tephritidae: Dacinae) contains 75 described species, largely endemic to Southeast Asia. Within the complex are a small number of… Expand

Review of approaches to evaluate the effectiveness of weed biological control agents
We review key issues, available approaches and analyses to encourage and assist practitioners to develop sound plans to evaluate the effectiveness of weed biological control agents at various phases… Expand
Intensity of pre‐dispersal seed predation in the invasive legume Leucaena leucocephala is limited by the duration of pod retention
Abstract The intensity of seed predation the invasive tropical legume Leucaena leucocephala by the bruchid Acanthoscelides macropthalmus was investigated in south-eastern Queensland, Australia. The… Expand
Adding Biofuels to the Invasive Species Fire?
Biofuel crops, particularly using non-native species, must be introduced with an understanding of possible risks to the environment.
Bridging the morphological and biological species concepts: studies on the Bactrocera dorsalis (Hendel) complex (Diptera : Tephritidae : Dacinae) in South-east Asia
Defining species accurately is a critical need in fundamental disciplines such as ecology and evolutionary biology and in applied arenas such as pest management. The validity of species designations… Expand

The cultivation of plants for the production of hydrocarbon fuels is gaining global momentum. These biofuels offer potential benefits as alternatives to fossil fuels, but mitigating any environmental… Expand
Influence of fruit traits on oviposition preference and offspring performance of Bactrocera tryoni (Froggatt) (Diptera: Tephritidae) on three tomato (Lycopersicon lycopersicum) cultivars
In Queensland, three tomato (Lycopersicon lycopersicum) cultivars, Grosse Lisse, Roma and Cherry, are infested by Queensland fruit fly, Bactrocera tryoni (Froggatt). In this study, we examined if… Expand
