Field observations on the biology and behaviour of Dasiops caustonae Norrbom and McAlpine (Dipt., Lonchaeidae), as a candidate biocontrol agent of Passiflora mollissima in Hawaii
TLDR
Life‐cycle studies demonstrated that D. caustonae is multivoltine with an estimated life‐cycle length of 3 to 4 months, and female flies appear to mark flowers with an oviposition deterrent pheromone, possibly the first report of marking behaviour outside Tephritidae. Expand
DISTRIBUTION OF SIX ALIEN PLANT SPECIES IN UPLAND HABITATS ON THE ISLAND OF HAWAI ` I
The 1976-1981 distribution, elevation, and median annual rainfall of six alien plant species in upland habitats on the island of Hawai`i are described based on data collected at 7,864 sampling pointsExpand
Invasional meltdown: pollination of the invasive liana Passiflora tripartita var. mollissima (Passifloraceae) in New Zealand.
Banana passionfruit (Passiflora tripartita var. mollissima) is an invasive vine in New Zealand where it lacks its natural hummingbird pollinator. We investigated the mating system and reproductiveExpand
Status of the biological control of banana poka, Passiflora mollissima (aka P. tarminiana) in Hawaii.
TLDR
Banana poka remains a serious weed pest in Hawaii, USA, and host-related insect diversity was greatest in Colombia, Ecuador, Peru and Venezuela, and poorest in Bolivia and Chile. Expand
Examination of sex attractants for monitoring weed biological control agents in Hawaii
TLDR
Development of monitoring systems based on sex attractants can enable better evaluation of biocontrol programmes, and provide cost-effective information on presence/absence, density, phenology, synchrony with the host, dispersal rate and other useful parameters. Expand
ALIEN PLANT CONTROL STRATEGIES IN Hawai`i VOLCANOES NATIONAL PARK*
Alien plants have greatly altered some native plant communities and threaten others in Hawai`i Volcanoes National Park. The Park contains approximately 405 alien and 375 native vascular plantExpand
ALIEN PLANTS IN HALEAKALA NATIONAL PARK
The alien plant problems of Haleakala National Park are substantial but may be fewer than those of other Hawai`ian natural areas, partly because most of the Park is at high elevation (75% above 5,000Expand
EVALUATING PROPOSED BIOLOGICAL CONTROL PROGRAMS FOR INTRODUCED PLANTS
Introduced plants in native ecosystems can be managed with a variety of techniques, including biological control, the introduction and establishment of natural enemies of the weed. While generallyExpand
History and success of plant pathogens for biological control of introduced weeds in Hawaii
TLDR
The history of biological control of invasive introduced weed species with fugal pathogens in Hawaii began in 1967 motivated by a Kauai rancher whose pastures were infested with ‘Kolomona,’ Senna surattensis, and results convinced the Hawaii Department of Agriculture that fungi were a valuable tool in the management of invasive weeds.
