ABSTRACT In China, the woolly apple aphid, Eriosoma lanigerum (Hausmann), was first detected as an invasive species during the 1910s to 1930s, restricted to Shandong, Liaoning, and Yunnan Provinces. However, since the 1990s, the pest has spread into many other areas of China. To determine the possible spread routes of the recently established populations, the genetic diversity and genetic structure of 24 populations in 10 provinces were analyzed using eight microsatellite loci. Analyses using… 
Laboratory comparison of two Aphelinus mali clades for control of woolly apple aphid from Hebei Province, China
TLDR
Comparing the same parasitoid clades with hosts from Hebei Province found no significant differences in the developmental threshold temperature, effective accumulated temperature, fecundity, longevity, and oviposition period of the two clades, but the duration of host searching of the Shandong clade was significantly longer than that of the Liaoning clade.
Resistance performance of four principal apple cultivars to woolly apple aphid, Eriosoma lanigerum (Hemiptera: Pemphigidae), by simulated seasonal temperature in northern China
TLDR
Overall, Red Fuji was highly susceptible to WAA, while Starkrimson, Jonagold, and Ralls Genet were partially resistant, while the optimal temperature for WAA growth and reproduction is 20–25 ℃, at which temperature, aphids on Red Fuji showed the highest rate of reproduction, the highest number of colonies, and the greatest area covered by aphid colonies among the four cultivars.
Possible Source Populations of the White-backed Planthopper in the Greater Mekong Subregion Revealed by Mitochondrial DNA Analysis
TLDR
The study revealed the potential emigration of S. furcifera from the GMS and putative secondary immigration inside China’s Yunnan Province and investigated the population genetic diversity, genetic structure, and gene flow by intensive sampling using mitochondrial genes, which will help in predicting population dynamics of the planthopper.
Mitochondrial Genome of Aphelinus mali (Haldeman) (Hymenoptera: Aphelinidae) with a Higher at Percent and the Highest AT-Skew in Hymenoptera
TLDR
The mitochondrial genome of A. mali is quite different from that of other Hymenoptera as can be demonstrated by constructing a phylogenetic tree and showed considerable rearrangement when compared with the mitochondrial genomes of the most primitive arrangement.
Large-scale geography survey provides insights into the colonization history of a major aphid pest on its cultivated apple host in Europe, North America and North Africa
TLDR
This work investigated the demographic history of the rosy apple aphid, Dysaphis plantaginea, a major pest of the cultivated apple in Europe, North Africa and North America, as well as the diversity of its microbiota, and found that D. Plantaginea rarely hosts other endosymbiotic bacteria than its obligate nutritional symbiont Buchnera aphidicola, suggesting that secondary endosYmbionts did not play an important role in the rapid spread.
Biases of STRUCTURE software when exploring introduction routes of invasive species
TLDR
Overall, the risk of being misled by STRUCTURE in the context of introduction routes inferences is moderate, but it is important to remain cautious when low genetic diversity or genuine multimodality between runs are involved.
A simulation-based evaluation of STRUCTURE software for exploring the introduction routes of invasive species
TLDR
Computer simulations of microsatellite datasets were used to evaluate the extent to which the clustering results provided by STRUCTURE were misleading for the inference of introduction routes for two invasive populations independently introduced from a native population.

Invasion Genetics of the Western Flower Thrips in China: Evidence for Genetic Bottleneck, Hybridization and Bridgehead Effect
TLDR
Investigation of the genetic structure and routes of range expansion of 14 F. occidentalis populations in China found low genetic differentiation among all the populations and strong evidence for gene flow, especially from the three southwestern populations (Baoshan, Dali and Kunming) to the other Chinese populations.
Genetic variation in the invasive process of Bursaphelenchus xylophilus (Aphelenchida: Aphelenchoididae) and its possible spread routes in China
TLDR
Phylogenetic analysis showed that Chinese pinewood nematode populations were closer to Japanese populations than to American populations and two major invasion pathways in China are suggested.
Two Putative Bridgehead Populations of Aphelinus mali (Hymenoptera: Aphelinidae) Introduced in China as Revealed by Mitochondrial DNA Marker
TLDR
The results revealed that the A. mali in China consisted of 2 cryptic mitochondrial clades including 3 haplotypes, which indicated at least 2 independent introductions of the parasitoid into China.
Analysis of Genetic Diversity and Structure of Two Clades of Aphelinus mali (Hymenoptera: Aphelinidae) in China
TLDR
The data confirmed that the QD and DL populations have served as bridgeheads for the other SD and LN populations in China and demonstrated that the hybridization or gene flow has occurred between the 2 mitochondrial clades.
Investigation of the genetic diversity of an invasive whitefly (Bemisia tabaci) in China using both mitochondrial and nuclear DNA markers
TLDR
Using both the mitochondrial cytochrome oxidase I (mtCOI) and nuclear (microsatellite) DNA, it is shown that Q in Shandong likely originated in the western Mediterranean, which supports the interpretation that the invading Q lost haplotype diversity, most probably through the serial process of establishment and redistribution through trade in ornamental plants.
The field biology of subterranean populations of the woolly apple aphid, Eriosoma lanigerum (Hausmann) (Hemiptera: Aphididae), in South African apple orchards
TLDR
There were two peaks of activity in subterranean E. lanigerum populations, one during early summer and one during autumn, and all developmental stages were recorded on the roots of apple trees throughout the year.
Spatial Genetic Heterogeneity in Populations of a Newly Invasive Whitefly in China Revealed by a Nation-Wide Field Survey
TLDR
The invasive sweet potato whitefly (Bemisia tabaci Q, commonly known as B. tabaci biotype Q) in China is investigated to determine the genetic structure of its populations during the initial introduction and to investigate the high spatial genetic heterogeneity.
Pathways of spread of the introduced ascidian Styela clava (Tunicata) in Northern Europe, as revealed by microsatellite markers
TLDR
Large variation in genetic diversity was observed among the European populations but were not explained either by the geographic distance from the first introduction area nor by the time elapsed since the introduction, while populations from the Pacific coast were genetically similar to the same Japanese population as the Danish populations.
Landscape composition modulates population genetic structure of Eriosoma lanigerum (Hausmann) on Malus domestica Borkh in central Chile.
TLDR
The woolly apple aphid, Eriosoma lanigerum (Hausmann), an important pest of apple orchards worldwide, was collected on apple trees from different locations in a 400 km north-south transect trough central Chile to determine if there was population structure, diversity and flow.
Isolation and characterization of microsatellite loci from the woolly apple aphid Eriosoma lanigerum (Hemiptera: Aphididae: Eriosomatinae)
TLDR
Eight novel microsatellite primer pairs are presented for Eriosoma lanigerum, representing the first micros satellite markers available for this genus, and are therefore useful for population genetic studies within the species.
