Northeastern North American Sirex Species: Phylogenetic Analysis of Deladenus Nematodes
Cospeciation between four North American Sirex spp. and their associated nematode parasites. Nematodes that were hypothesize are normally associated with Sirex nigricornis. One individual of the native Sirex nigricornis contained Deladenus normally associated with Sirex noctilio.
Population Structure and the Colonization Route of the Hessian Fly, Mayetiola destructor
Introduced populations in North America did not show identity or assignment to any Old World population, likely indicating a multiple introduction scenario with subsequent gene flow between populations.
Mountain Pine Beetles: Highly Enriched in Genes Contributing to Terpene Metabolism
Metagenome of bacterial communities associated with a bark beetle, and is consistent with a potential microbial contribution to detoxification of tree defenses needed to survive the subcortical environment.
Conservation of saproxylic biodiversity: Pollarding promotes the formation of tree hollows
Trees with hollows are key features sustaining biodiversity in wooded landscapes. The importance of active management measures for maintaining availability, and spatial and temporal continuity of deadwood microhabitats.
No Harm: Green Lacewing, Chrysoperla rufilabris, Bt Crops Producing Cry1Ac, Cry2Ab and Cry1F
The power of using resistant hosts when assessing the risk of genetically modified plants on non-target organisms. Cry1Ac, Cry2Ab and Cry1F do not pose a hazard to the important predator C. rufilabris.
