Abstract

Synthetic insecticides continue to be the main strategy for managing insect pests, which are a major concern for both crop protection and public health. As nicotinic acetylcholine receptors play a central role in insect neurotransmission, they are the molecular target of neurotoxic insecticides...

Abstract

The drosophilid, Drosophila affinis Sturtevant (Diptera: Drosophilidae), was reported for the first time on fig (Ficus carica L.) trees in the State of Morelos, Mexico. The area planted with figs has been increasing in the region because of opening of new markets; the pests could be a phytosanitary ...

Abstract

(1) Although most past studies are based on static analyses of the pest regulation drivers, evidence shows that a greater focus on the temporal dynamics of these interactions is urgently required to develop more efficient strategies. (2) Focusing on aphids, we systematically reviewed (i) empirical...

Abstract

Insect herbivores interact via plant-mediated interactions in which one herbivore species induces changes in plant quality that affects the performance of a second phytophagous insect that shares the food plant. These interactions are often asymmetric due to specificity in induced plant responses...

Abstract

RNA interference, also known as post transcriptional gene silencing, is an emerging new genetic engineering technique that can effectively silence or inhibits the expression of target genes. Biopesticides based on RNA interference are considered as a revolutionary technique in the field of plant...
