Abstract

With climate change and increasing globalisation of trade and travel, the risks presented by invasive pests and pathogens to natural environments, agriculture and economies have never been greater, and are only increasing with time. Governments world-wide are responding to these increased threats...

Abstract

Context: Effective conservation planning for species depends on vegetation models that can capture the dynamics of habitat elements across both spatial and temporal domains. Incorporating these dynamics at landscape scales is essential for understanding the impact of natural disturbance,...

Abstract

Invasive non-indigenous species (NIS) are a threat to marine biodiversity and marine reliant industries. Recreational vessels are recognised as an important vector of NIS translocation, particularly domestically. This paper reports on a novel application of multilevel modelling and multiple...

Abstract

Context: Multi-species native forests are an important source of habitat for many plant and animal species. The dynamics of these forests are shaped by species-specific differences in growth, shade tolerance, life span, and other life-history traits, which lead to complex development patterns....

Abstract

The ornamental fish trade in Australia has an estimated value of AUD$350 million and involves importation of up to 20 million fish from 26 approved countries each year. Critical reviews indicated that the biosecurity system did not fully manage the risks associated with fish that were...

Abstract

To identify the soft rot Enterobacteriaceae (SREs) in the Upper Midwestern United States, a 2016 survey of commercial and seed potato fields in Minnesota and North Dakota was conducted. SREs (123) were isolated from 78 tissue samples exhibiting symptoms of black leg, stem rot, and soft rot. Three...

Abstract

New trait technology incorporating 2,4-D resistance in soybean is dependent upon the ability of the plant to metabolize 2,4-D by the aryloxyalkanoate dioxygenase-12 protein (AAD-12). Our objectives were to determine AAD-12 expression during the daytime, throughout the leaf canopy, and before and...

Abstract

New trait technology incorporating 2,4-dichlorophenoxyacetic acid (2,4-D) resistance in soybean provides an alternative method to control weeds. However, the effect of postemergence treatments of 2,4-D on aryloxyalkanoate dioxygenase-12 (AAD-12) soybean on injury and yield components has not been...

Abstract

Blackleg and stem rot are common diseases affecting potato (Solanum tuberosum) production in the Northern Great Plains of the USA. Changes in the taxonomy of the causal agents of blackleg and stem rot diseases and concerns in the potato industry about newly emerging pathogens, such as Dickeya spp., ...

Abstract

Tuber soft rot and blackleg represent important bacterial diseases of potato (Solanum tuberosum) worldwide. In response to reported blackleg epidemics in the northeastern United States, potato production fields in the northern Great Plains region were surveyed in 2015 and 2016 for the presence of...
