Green peach aphid Myzus persicae (Sulzer) is a serious pest of potato and causes severe yield loss to potato production worldwide. The volatiles emitted from potato plants influence host selection by M. persicae. A laboratory experiment was conducted to study how these volatile emissions vary among four potato varieties (IdaRose, Desiree, Chipeta and Russet(More)
Vector-dependent plant pathogens can alter their hosts such that vector behavior and pathogen spread are affected. For example, Potato leafroll virus (PLRV)-induces changes in volatiles emitted by potato plants (Solanum tuberosum L.) that influence settling behavior by Myzus persicae, a principal vector of the virus. Prior work in this pathosystem has(More)
This paper deals with the 2D steady-state response and riding comfort of a train moving over a series of simply supported railway bridges, together with the impact response of the rails and bridges. The dynamic response of the vehicle-rails-bridge interaction system is solved by a condensation technique developed previously. For the moving train to achieve(More)
