Gut bacteria of fruit fly, Bactrocera tau (Walker) (Diptera: Tephritidae), were isolated and the isolates attractive to B. tau adults were characterized using morphological, biochemical and 16S rRNA analyses to determine their taxonomic position. Based upon morphological, biochemical and 16S rRNA sequences (on the basis of closest match), five gut bacterial… CONTINUE READING
