Defensive plant responses induced by Nesidiocoris tenuis (Hemiptera: Miridae) on tomato plants
In the last decade, biological control programs for greenhouse tomatoes and other crops have been successfully implemented using zoophytophagous plant bugs (Miridae), which can feed on both plantExpand

Tomato plant responses to feeding behavior of three zoophytophagous predators (Hemiptera: Miridae)
Plant responses induced by zoophytophagous plant bugs (Miridae) have not been thoroughly studied. Here, we show that three different zoophytophagous predators (Nesidiocoris tenuis, MacrolophusExpand

Preventive and post‐infection control of Botrytis cinerea in tomato plants by hexanoic acid
The antifungal activity of hexanoic acid on the phytopathogen Botrytis cinerea was studied. This chemical inhibited both spore germination and mycelial growth in vitro in a concentration- andExpand

Stage-Related Defense Response Induction in Tomato Plants by Nesidiocoris tenuis
The beneficial effects of direct predation by zoophytophagous biological control agents (BCAs), such as the mirid bug Nesidiocoris tenuis, are well-known. However, the benefits of zoophytophagousExpand
