Determination of the Genetic Variation within the Egg Parasitoid , Trichogramma brassicae , Bezdenko ( Hymenoptera : Trichogrammatidae ) Populations in Düzce Province , Turkey
*Corresponding author a.samikoca@yahoo.com.tr Abstract. Members of Trichogramma genus are the most widely used as natural enemies in biological control programs. Choice of natural enemies is known toExpand
Molecular identification of Trichogramma species from regions in Brazil using the sequencing of the ITS2 region of ribosomal DNA.
TLDR
It was concluded that using the sequences of the ITS2 region of the ribosomal DNA was efficient in the differentiation of the studied Trichogramma species, which suggests a strong inter-specific variation among species. Expand
Genetic variation of sweet potato weevils, Cylas formicarius (Fabricius) (Coleoptera: Brentidae), in main infested areas in the world based upon the internal transcribed spacer-1 (ITS-1) region
TLDR
Looking at human historical events, C. formicarius would have gradually spread in southern Asia due to its limited dispersal ability since originating in the Indian subcontinent 90 million years ago, but after becoming associated with sweet potato, especially after the nineteenth century, local populations with fairly different genetic properties from Indian weevils would have been rapidly spread by human transportation of infested sweet potato throughout the world.

Parasitoids, predators and PCR: the use of diagnostic molecular markers in biological control of Arthropods
TLDR
Research that has used PCR‐based techniques for parasitoid and predator/prey identification and detection is reviewed, and these studies are placed in the context of their contributions to biological control of arthropods. Expand
A Rapid Single-Step Multiplex Method for Discriminating Between Trichogramma (Hymenoptera: Trichogrammatidae) Species in Australia
TLDR
A “one-step” multiplex PCR technique using species-specific primers designed to the ITS-2 region developed allowed for a high-throughput analysis of samples as part of ongoing ecological studies examining Trichogramma biological control potential in the ORIA where these two species occur in sympatry. Expand
Molecular markers to study population structure and dynamics in beneficial insects (predators and parasitoids)
TLDR
The range of molecular markers available and their potential uses are discussed, concentrating on how particular markers have been employed to unravel different patterns of behaviour. Expand
Molecular and Morphological Identification of Trichogramma (Hymenoptera: Trichogrammatidae) Species From Asian Corn Borer (Lepidoptera: Crambidae) in Myanmar.
TLDR
This is the first report on the composition of Trichogramma species, and an important step towards the establishment of biological control against O. furnacalis in Myanmar. Expand
Inter- and Intra-Specific Differentiation of Trichogramma (Hymenoptera: Trichogrammatidae) Species Using PCR–RFLP Targeting COI
TLDR
A polymerase chain reaction–restriction fragment length polymorphism method targeting the mitochondrial COI to distinguish the eight Trichogramma species using three restriction enzymes and found that the PCR–RFLP method could distinguish both intra- and inter-specific genetic variation among most of the species using four additional restriction enzymes. Expand
Identification and Natural Parasitism of Trichogramma Species on Ostrinia nubilalis Hübner (Lepidoptera: Noctuidae) Eggs in Düzce, Turkey
TLDR
It would appear that T. brassicae was responsible for the total collapse of the host population of the European corn borer in Düzce province of Turkey, and it seems that this wasp species adapts well to corn fields. Expand

Taxonomy of the Trichogramma minutum complex (Hymenoptera: Trichogrammatidae) : allozymic variation and its relationship to reproductive and geographic data
TLDR
Allozymic variation at 14 loci in 22 cultures of the Trichogramma minutum Riley complex is correlated significantly with levels of reproductive compatibility reported in a previous study, supporting a protocol of extensive intraspecific sampling when using electrophoretic data for characterizing and relating species in this genus.

Characterizing Trichogramma (Hymenoptera: Trichogrammatidae) species for biocontrol of light brown apple moth (Lepidoptera: Tortricidae) in grapevines in Australia.
TLDR
An undescribed Trichogramma (Trichogrammanza) species which had not been clearly identified morphologically was separated, and may be adapted to lower temperatures than the other species collected, but its commercial potential is currently limited by its rejection of Sitotroga cerealella as a rearing host.
