(Wiley on behalf of Australian Entomological Society, 2008-11)
Fungi and bacteria on the external surfaces of four gorse-associated insect species: gorse seed weevil Apion ulicis Förster (Coleoptera: Apionidae), light brown apple moth Epiphyas postvittana Walker (Lepidoptera: Tortricidae), ...
Life history traits of cockroaches in sugar-cane fields in La Réunion (Blattodea: Blattellidae and Blaberidae)
(Taylor & Francis Online, 2004)
As there are no descriptions of immature stages and of the life history traits of the seven cockroach species found in sugar-cane fields in La Réunion, their development was followed from egg to adult under laboratory ...
Factors influencing pathogenicity of Fusarium tumidum on gorse (Ulex europaeus)
(Taylor & Francis, 2008-09-26)
Factors promoting pathogenicity of Fusarium tumidum on gorse (Ulex europaeus) were determined to develop a novel strategy for delivering this potential mycoherbicide using insects as vectors of inoculum. Fusarium tumidum ...
