Effects of home preparation on pesticide residues in cabbage
Abstract Experiment was carried out to evaluate the pesticides (chlorpyrifos, p,p -DDT, cypermethrin, chlorothalonil) residue levels in cabbage in the process of home preparation by washing withExpand

Incompatible and sterile insect techniques combined eliminate mosquitoes
The radiation-based sterile insect technique (SIT) has successfully suppressed field populations of several insect pest species, but its effect on mosquito vector control has been limited. TheExpand

The phylogenetic position of eriophyoid mites (superfamily Eriophyoidea) in Acariformes inferred from the sequences of mitochondrial genomes and nuclear small subunit (18S) rRNA gene.
Eriophyoid mites (superfamily Eriophyoidea) comprise >4400 species worldwide. Despite over a century of study, the phylogenetic position of these mites within Acariformes is still poorly resolved.Expand

The complete mitochondrial genome sequence of Sogatella furcifera (Horváth) and a comparative mitogenomic analysis of three predominant rice planthoppers.
The white-backed planthopper (WBPH), Sogatella furcifera (Horváth), is one of the most destructive pests of rice crops in many Asian countries. Using long-PCR and shotgun library methods, weExpand

Wolbachia Strengthens Cardinium-Induced Cytoplasmic Incompatibility in the Spider Mite Tetranychus piercei McGregor
Wolbachia and Cardinium are maternally inherited intracellular bacteria that can manipulate the reproduction of their arthropod hosts, such as by inducing cytoplasmic incompatibility (CI). AlthoughExpand

Invasion Genetics of the Western Flower Thrips in China: Evidence for Genetic Bottleneck, Hybridization and Bridgehead Effect
The western flower thrips, Frankliniella occidentalis (Pergande), is an invasive species and the most economically important pest within the insect order Thysanoptera. F. occidentalis, which isExpand

Homoplastic evolution and host association of Eriophyoidea (Acari, Prostigmata) conflict with the morphological-based taxonomic system.
The superfamily Eriophyoidea is exceptionally diverse and its members are highly host-specific. Currently, the taxonomy of this group is based on morphology only. However, phylogenetic relationshipsExpand

Wolbachia-Host Interactions: Host Mating Patterns Affect Wolbachia Density Dynamics
Wolbachia are maternally inherited intracellular bacteria that infect a wide range of arthropods and cause an array of effects on host reproduction, fitness and mating behavior. Although ourExpand

Identification of two lineages of host-associated eriophyoid mites predisposed to different levels of host diversification.
Herbivorous arthropods can diversify as a consequence of evolutionary changes in response to their plant hosts. Current patterns of host association of herbivores are likely to reflect a longExpand

Population Genetic Structure of the Twospotted Spider Mite (Acari: Tetranychidae) from China
Abstract The Chinese population genetic structure of the twospotted spider mite, Tetranychus urticae Koch (Acari: Tetranychidae), was investigated by amplifying and sequencing a portion (453 bp) inExpand
