Effect of temperature on biology and population growth parameters of Aphis gossypii Glover (Hom., Aphididae) on greenhouse cucumber
TLDR
Three mathematical models were compared for accuracy in predicting the developmental rate of A. gossypii, and estimating its temperature thresholds and optima, and the Briere 2 and Lactin 2 models were accepted for success to satisfy criteria of goodness‐of‐fit and estimable temperature threshold parameters.

The first report and control strategies of Tuta absoluta in Iran
TLDR
This is the first report of T. absoluta in Iran, a very serious pest for tomato, and an outbreak of this pest is expected during the crop cycle in autumn and winter 2011–2012 in the south of Iran. Expand
Temperature-dependent functional response of two aphid parasitoids, Aphidius colemani and Aphidius matricariae (Hymenoptera: Aphidiidae), on the cotton aphid
TLDR
The results showed that instantaneous attack rate in A.colemani increased linearly as the temperature increases from 10 to 30°C, but in the case of A.matricariae, increased almost linearly with temperature to reach a maximum at 25 °C, and then decreased at 30° C, displaying an asymmetrical dome-shaped pattern, which suggests that A. cole mani maybe more effective for biological control of the cotton aphid during warmer periods.

Effect of Temperature on Life History of Aphidius colemani and Aphidius matricariae (Hymenoptera: Braconidae), Two Parasitoids of Aphis gossypii and Myzus persicae (Homoptera: Aphididae)
TLDR
The Lactin 2 and Briere 1 developmental models were accepted based on their excellent goodness-of-fit to the data (residual sum of square and coefficient of determination) and estimable temperature thresholds and are strongly recommended for the description of temperature-dependent development of A. colemani and A. matricariae.

Life table and age-dependent reproduction of the predatory bug Orius niger Wolff (Heteroptera : Anthocoridae) at three constant temperatures : a demographic analysis
TLDR
Analysis of the mortality of eggs, juveniles and adults of Orius niger Wolff suggests that the population growth rate is restricted most by juvenile mortality, which should therefore be minimized in mass cultures. Expand
Thermal Requirement and Development of Liriomyza sativae (Diptera: Agromyzidae) on Cucumber
TLDR
Conclusively, linear and Briere models are recommended as the most efficient for the description of temperature-dependent development of L. sativae. Expand
Natural parasitism of Liriomyza sativae (Diptera: Agromyzidae) on cucumber under field and greenhouse conditions
TLDR
It was finally concluded that illogical and inappropriate use of insecticides for controlling pests affecting field and greenhouse crops can reduce the population density and efficacy of natural enemies. Expand
Estimating development rate and thermal requirements of Hemiptarsenus zilahisebessi (Hymenoptera: Eulophidae) parasitoid of Liriomyza sativae (Diptera: Agromyzidae) using linear and non linear models
TLDR
Temperature-based development models can be useful in designing massrearing protocols, in helping to make decisions in augmentative release trials, and in the development of predictive modelling. Expand
Estimation of larval density of Liriomyza sativae Blanchard (Diptera: Agromyzidae) in cucumber greenhouses using fixed precision sequential sampling plans
TLDR
The sampling plan developed in this study is effective and reliable for estimating the larval densities in cucumber greenhouses and bootstrap simulation within a wide range of densities demonstrated that actual D' values at desired D= 0.28 averaged <0.28. Expand
