The genome of the model beetle and pest Tribolium castaneum
Tribolium castaneum is a member of the most species-rich eukaryotic order, a powerful model organism for the study of generalized insect development, and an important pest of stored agriculturalExpand
Characterization of the Complete Mitochondrial Genomes of Cnaphalocrocis medinalis and Chilo suppressalis (Lepidoptera: Pyralidae)
The phylogenetic relationships of these insects were reconstructed based on amino acid sequences of mitochondrial 13 PCGs using Bayesian inference and maximum likelihood methods, and these molecular-based phylogenies support the traditional morphologically based view of relationships within the Pyralidae.

Effect of ozone on respiration of adult Sitophilus oryzae (L.), Tribolium castaneum (Herbst) and Rhyzopertha dominica (F.).
The results showed that there were decreases in the rate of respiration in R. dominica and T. castaneum with an increase in ozone concentration and the findings in relation to control strategies were discussed. Expand
Thermal tolerance of Frankliniella occidentalis: Effects of temperature, exposure time, and gender
Tolerance of extreme temperatures and an ability to undergo rapid hardening are of great ecological relevance in determining the geographic distribution of WFT, allowing it to survive better in temporary bouts of extreme temperature stress. Expand
Host plants and natural enemies of Bemisia tabaci (Hemiptera: Aleyrodidae) in China
Plants in the families Compositae, Cruciferae, Cucurbitaceae, Solanaceae and Leguminosae were the preferred host species for B. tabaci, which therefore suffered much damage from this devastating pest due to their high populations. Expand
Genetic Variation of Host Populations of Liriomyza sativae Blanchard
Analysis of partial sequences of the mitochondrial cytochrome oxidase subunit I (mtDNA-COI) gene and the ribosomal internal transcribed spacer 1 (rDNA-ITS1) gene, isolated from five artificial populations of L. sativae, showed that a low genetic variation was detected among the five populations and only five variable sites were found in the nucleotide sequences.

Two new species of Protonemura (Plecoptera: Nemouridae) from China
Two new species of Protonemura macrodactyla Du & Zhou, sp. Expand
Effect of Rapid Cold Hardening on the Cold Tolerance of the Larvae of the Rice Stem Borer, Chilo suppressalis (Walker)
The results showed that the discriminating temperature of the larvae was about -21°C, which was significantly higher than those of the control groups. Expand
Five small heat shock protein genes from Chilo suppressalis: characteristics of gene, genomic organization, structural analysis, and transcription profiles
It is demonstrated that different Csshsps play distinctive roles in the regulation of the physiological activities in C. suppressalis, and this work isolated and characterized five members of the sHSPs family from the striped stem borer. Expand
Antioxidant responses of Chilo suppressalis (Lepidoptera: Pyralidae) larvae exposed to thermal stress
It is suggested that thermal stress leads to oxidative stress and that antioxidant enzymes and the Hsp70 play an important role in reducing oxidative damage in C. suppressalis larvae. Expand
