Abstract

Opuntia stricta (Haw.) Haw (Cactaceae) is invasive in Laikipia County, Kenya, impacting negatively on biodiversity and livelihoods. To control this invasive plant the biocontrol agent Dactylopius opuntiae (Cockerell) (Hemiptera; Dactylopiidae) 'stricta' biotype was released in 2014. A preliminary...

Abstract

Understanding the sustainability of social-ecological systems requires quantifying the relationships between ecosystem service supply and use. However, these relationships, and the influence of environmental change on supply and use, are poorly known. Here we apply a nested sampling design to...

Abstract

Development of a biological control program for invasive Phagmites australis australis in North America required 20 years of careful research, and consideration of management alternatives. A recent paper by Kiviat et al. (Biol Invasions 21:2529-2541, 2019) Articulates opposition to this biocontrol...

Abstract

Russian Olive, Elaeagnus angustifolia was introduced into North America primarily as a wind break and shade tree. Today it is listed as a noxious weed in the U.S. and Canada. During field surveys in the native range, the eriophyid mite, Aceria angustifoliae was identified as a promising biological...

Abstract

Impatiens parviflora, commonly known as small balsam, is an invasive plant native to the mountains of central Asia. In September 2013, uredinia and telia of the rust fungus Puccinia komarovii were identified on the abaxial leaf surface of I. parviflora at Northchurch Common, Hertfordshire, UK. The...

Abstract

This review summarizes all known direct nontarget attack (NTA) cases of intentionally released or actively redistributed weed biological control agents, in order to allow for an objective risk-benefit analysis when choosing the most appropriate method for controlling invasive plants. Of 457 agents...

Abstract

Matrix-assisted laser-desorption and ionization time-of-flight mass spectroscopy (MALDI-TOF MS) is commonly used for the characterization of protein-containing biological samples. For this, we have previously developed sample-preparation methods that can be used for discrimination between Impatiens ...
