Resolving the identification of weak-flying insects during flight: a coupling between rigorous data processing and biology.

Agric For Entomol 2021 Nov 2;23(4):489-505. Epub 2021 Jun 2.

Rothamsted Insect Survey Rothamsted Research West Common, Harpenden AL5 2JQ U.K.

Bioacoustic methods play an increasingly important role for the detection of insects in a range of surveillance and monitoring programmes.Weak-flying insects evade detection because they do not yield sufficient audio information to capture wingbeat and harmonic frequencies. These inaudible insects often pose a significant threat to food security as pests of key agricultural crops worldwide. Read More

Genetics-based methods for agricultural insect pest management.

Agric For Entomol 2018 May 21;20(2):131-140. Epub 2017 Jun 21.

Mathematical Ecology Research Group, Department of Zoology, South Parks Road Oxford OX1 3PS U.K.

The sterile insect technique is an area-wide pest control method that reduces agricultural pest populations by releasing mass-reared sterile insects, which then compete for mates with wild insects. Contemporary genetics-based technologies use insects that are homozygous for a repressible dominant lethal genetic construct rather than being sterilized by irradiation.Engineered strains of agricultural pest species, including moths such as the diamondback moth Plutella xylostella and fruit flies such as the Mediterranean fruit fly Ceratitis capitata, have been developed with lethality that only operates on females.

Influence of the forest caterpillar hunter on the transmission of microsporidia in larvae of the gypsy moth

Agric For Entomol 2013 May 22;15(2):178-186. Epub 2013 Jan 22.

Department of Forest and Soil Sciences, BOKU-University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences Hasenauerstraße 38, 1190 Vienna.

The behaviour of predators can be an important factor in the transmission success of an insect pathogen. We studied how influences the interaction between its prey [ (L.) (Lepidoptera, Lymantriidae)] and two microsporidian pathogens [ (Microsporidia, Nosematidae) and (Microsporidia, Burellenidae)] infecting the prey. Read More
