Parasitoids and Predators of Physokermes hellenicus (Hemiptera: Coccomorpha: Coccidae) in Greece
The results suggest that the abundance of the fir scale P. hellenicus could be affected by a complex of parasitoid and predator species of different taxa, which would help to understand possible fluctuation of the scale's population. Expand
Molecular taxonomy of the genus Physokermes (Hemiptera: Coccidae) species in Greece, based on mtDNA sequencing data
