Among the Bemisia tabaci (Hemiptera: Aleyrodidae) species complex, the Middle East–Asia Minor I (MEAMI) and the Mediterranean (Med) species are the most invasive and widespread agricultural pests worldwide. Currently, only Tunisia and a few other countries are reported to still “host” these two competing species. The objective was thus to improve our knowledge on the factors, particularly the host plant, which contribute to this unusual situation. To that end, we analyzed 47 samples collected… CONTINUE READING
