Microßora species and volatiles emitted from artiÞcial diets were examined from the larvae of three homozygous alcohol dehydrogenase (Adh) strains of the olive fruit ßy, Bactrocera (Dacus) oleae (Gmelin), reared under identical conditions. Differences in volatile composition were detected when Adh-I homozygous larvae developed in a diet lacking the preservative p-hydroxybenzoic acid methyl ester (nipagin). Larval development of the Adh-I strain in the preservative-free diet was reduced by 50… CONTINUE READING
