  author={D. Pantone and C. Womersley},
SUMMARY The distribution of flower galls caused by Anguina amsinckiae (Steiner & Scott, 1934) Thorne, 1961 on the host plant Amsinckia intermedia Fischer & Meyer (Borraginaceae) is described. Galls were exclusively associated with floral tissues, and were restricted to the five uppermost inflorescences of the host plants. Approximately 93 O’o of total galls were located in the two uppermost inflorescences. Within a given inflorescence, galls were restiicted to the six basal flowers with… Expand

An Alternative Approach for Evaluating the Efficacy of Potential Biocontrol Agents of Weeds. 1. Inverse Linear Model
Methods for evaluating the efflicacy of potential classical biocontrol agents were outlined and a dramatic change in the competitive interaction between fiddleneck and wheat due to the nematode was revealed. Expand
Nematodes as Biological Control Agents of Weeds
The utilization of plant parasitic nematodes for the biological control of weeds is newer and less proven than the insect-nematode biological control strategies and centers on the application of foliar gall-forming types. Expand


Seed production and seed germination of Amsinckia hispida
The response of Amsinckia to environmental factors is such that these plants which germinate late within wheat crops have an extended rosette period and are highly competitive. Expand
