Identification and characterization of Fusarium spp. associated with root rots of field pea in North Dakota
TLDR
The prevalence of F. avenaceum on roots of field peas, and the ability of isolates of this species to cause severe root rot, emphasizes the possibility of this pathogen to emerge as a potential risk under the current cropping practices for pulse crops in North Dakota, and potentially in other regions with similar growing conditions.
Temporal Changes in Nudibranch Composition at a Coastal Site off Penghu (the Pescadores) in the Taiwan Strait
TLDR
In total, 74 nominal species and 7 possible new species of sea slugs were recorded at a site off the coast of Wai-an in Penghu (the Pescadores) in the Taiwan Strait from 20 survey dives, and the Chromodorididae and Phyllidiidae were the 2 most-speciose families.
Can the morphology of the integumentary spicules be used to distinguish genera and species of phyllidiid nudibranchs (Porostomata: Phyllidiidae)?
TLDR
Spicule morphology is an extremely important character to tell the genus Phyllidiella apart from all the other genera of the family, but it is not taxonomically informative at the level of species.
Genetic differentiation of the soft shore barnacle Fistulobalanus albicostatus (Cirripedia: Thoracica: Balanomorpha) in the West Pacific
TLDR
This study examined the phylogeography of the barnacle Fistulobalanus albicostatus, which inhabits mangroves and estuarine shores in the West Pacific, and found that it comprises two major clades exhibiting a COI divergence ranging from 1.25% to 2.8% and is divided into northern and southern clades.
A new deep-sea scalpelliform barnacle, Vulcanolepas buckeridgei sp. nov. (Eolepadidae: Neolepadinae) from hydrothermal vents in the Lau Basin.
The present study describes a new species of Vulcanolepas from the Lau Basin in the South Pacific. The basal angle of the tergum of Vulcanolepas buckeridgei sp. nov. is elevated from the
