Chlosyne lacinia saundersii is one of the most important pests of sunflower and it is the main target of insecticides applications. Larvae were collected in Londrina (PR), Santa Maria (RS), Dourados (MS), Ribeirão Preto (SP), Brasília (DF), Barreiras (BA), Uberaba (MG) and Vilhena (RO). Genomic DNA was extracted and amplified with ten-mer primers, which produced 101 loci. The size of the RAPD amplicons ranged from 180 to 2564 bp. Polymorphism among populations ranged from 31% to 67%, with the…

Occurrence of insects causing injuries to the yacon crop
TLDR
The caterpillar C. lacinia saundersii, known as sunflower caterpillar, was the most important species, being observed throughout the yacon cycle.
Spatial dispersal of Metarhizium anisopliae and Beauveria bassiana in soybean fields
TLDR
Spatial dispersal of B. bassiana in soybean field was significantly higher when conidia were applied as an oil formulation compared with a kaolin dust formulation, and no significant differences were observed in M. anisopliae dispersal.
6 Biodiversity Measures in Agriculture Using DNA
How to measure biodiversity? One of the possibilities is to use DNA. The mention of DNA can hint evolution, but this question is much more complicated and beyond the proposition of a biodiversity
Biodiversity Measures in Agriculture Using DNA
TLDR
DNA markers when used to study biodiversity are frequently designed for a great number of comparisons of similarities or differences among individuals, groups of individuals, or populations, where accurate measures of diversity may be required.

Intraspecific variation and population structure of the Velvetbean Caterpillar, Anticarsia gemmatalis Hübner, 1818 (Insecta: Lepidoptera: Noctuidae)
TLDR
The genetic similarities found between individuals from geographically distant populations and effective migration rate values indicate that migration occurs.
Molecular variability of Spodoptera frugiperda (Lepidoptera: Noctuidae) populations associated to maize and cotton crops in Brazil.
TLDR
Results suggest the occurrence of considerable gene flow between S. frugiperda populations from maize and cotton fields located in the same region in Brazil, and for an effective management of this pest, there is an urgent need for a better understanding of the gene flow.
Molecular Variability of Spodoptera frugiperda (Lepidoptera: Noctuidae) Populations Associated to Maize and Cotton Crops in Brazil
TLDR
The results suggest the occurrence of considerable gene flow between S. frugiperda populations from maize and cotton fields located in the same region in Brazil, and there is an urgent need for a better understanding of the gene flow of this pest.
Análise da estrutura e diversidade molecular de populações de Spodoptera frugiperda (J.E. Smith) (Lepidoptera: Noctuidae) associadas às culturas de milho e arroz no Rio Grande do Sul
TLDR
The results showed that the genetic variation of S. frugiperda populations is associated to host plants, confirming the presence of the "corn" and "rice" biotypes of S .
RAPD and mitochondrial DNA analysis of the soybean stalk weevil, Sternechus subsignatus (Coleoptera: Curculionidae)
TLDR
The data show that soybean stalk weevil outbreaks and population increases in northeastern Brazil involved local genotypes of geographically distinct Sternechus populations.
Characterization and genetic relationships among Brazilian biotypes of Schizaphis graminum (Rondani) (Hemiptera: Aphididae) using RAPD markers
TLDR
Using Jaccard Similarity Index and UPGMA clustering method it was possible to show that biotype B is genetically very distinct from C and E, which are closely related to each other, and showed that genetic variance among clonal populations belonging to the same biotype is smaller than amongClonal populations grouped according to their geographical similarity.
Determinação das Condições Ótimas para Análises de PCR-RAPD em Atta sexdens rubropilosa Forel (Hymenoptera: Formicidae)
TLDR
In order to determine the optimum conditions for using PCR-RAPD in taxonomical analyses of the genus Atta, the following factors were tested: concentrations of MgCl2, DNA, BSA, cycling programs and methods of DNA extraction, using Fractional Factorial Design and Central Composite Design.
Differences in Amplified Fragment-Length Polymorphisms in Fall Armyworm (Lepidoptera: Noctuidae) Host Strains
TLDR
Results indicate that AFLPs exhibit strain-specific variation comparable to that of mtDNA and allozymes, and in combination with other markers, will be useful for developing a system for identification of fall armyworm strains and hybrids.
Análise comparativa da estabilidade do DNA de Dalbulus maidis (DeLong & Wolcott) (Hemiptera: Cicadellidae) sob diferentes métodos de preservação para uso em RAPD-PCR
TLDR
Comparing simple methods of preservation of specimens of Dalbulus maidis (DeLong & Wolcott) (Hemiptera: Cicadellidae) with respect to quantity and quality of DNA for use in RAPD-PCR, after different storage periods showed freezing (-20oC) to be the best method.
A comparison of RAPD versus microsatellite DNA markers in population studies of the massasauga rattlesnake.
TLDR
These results argue that both types of markers are suitable for defining broad-scale genetic structures in snake populations and can provide important inputs into conservation initiatives of focal taxa, but suggest that microsatellites 3re better for detecting structure at limited spatial scales.
