Rose rosette emaravirus
The present status of this pathogen in California is evaluated and a permanent pest rating is proposed herein, suggesting they are the result of two separate introductions of RRV.
Mite (Acari Acarina) vectors involved in transmission of plant viruses
The development of new biotechnology-based strategies to reduce transmission by vectors and to decrease vector populations are attractive because these target pathways in the transmission of viruses.
What is Rose Rosette Disease
This research project has been funded by the Specialty Crops Research Initiative through the U.S. Department of Agriculture with the short-term objective of improving and disseminating best management practices (BMPs) and the long-term goal of identifying additional sources of resistance and developing the genetic tools to quickly transfer resistance into the elite commercial rose germplasm.
Evaluation of rose germplasm for resistance to rose rosette disease, and studies of disease transmission and vector management
A resistance trial intended to identify rose genotypes that merit consideration as candidates in a breeding scheme for resistance to RRD, and the use of predatory mites as a biological control of the vector, P. fructiphilus are investigated.
Demographic parameters of Phyllocoptes adalius (Acari: Eriophyoidea) and influence of insemination on female fecundity and longevity
These studies indicate that P. adalius has the potential for rapid population increase, becoming one of the most important rose mite species.
Effectiveness of eriophyid mites for biological control of weedy plants and challenges for future research
Concerns that eriophyid mites may be more likely to lose efficacy over time due to coevolution with the target weed or that they may bemore likely to adapt to nontarget host plants compared to insects, which have a longer generation time and slower population growth rate are raised.
Abundance of arthropods on the branch tips of the invasive plant, Rosa multiflora (Rosaceae)
This is the first study to document the presence of additional arthropods in the same microhabitat (branch tips) as P. fructiphilus, the presumed vector of rose rosette disease (RRD), on R. multiflora.
