Chemical Ecology and Management of Yellowmargined Leafbeetle Microtheca ochroloma Stal (Coleoptera: Chrysomelidae)
Balusu, Rammohan (2011-08-22)
Cruciferous vegetable production is an important industry in Alabama and other parts of the southern United States (U.S.). Many farmers in the region grow various kinds of cruciferous crops (e.g., turnip, radish, mustard, ...
Chemical Ecology of Some Underexplored Aspects of Plant-Herbivore-Parasitoid Tritrophic Interactions
Morawo, Tolulope (2017-11-28)
Plants, herbivorous insects and their natural enemies are involved in an intricate tritrophic interaction in a complex chemical environment. Herbivore infested plants, as well as plant-fed herbivores release volatile organic ...
Consequences of Mutualisms Between Aphids and an Invasive Ant to Arthropod Communities and Their Host Plants
Styrsky, John (2006-05-15)
Mutualisms between ants and honeydew-producing Hemipteran insects (e.g., aphids) are abundant and widespread in arthropod food webs, yet their ecological consequences are very poorly known. Previous work in several ...
Diurnal Patterns of Ovipositional Activity of Pseudacteon tricuspis and Pseudacteon curvatus (Diptera: Phoridae) in Alabama and Host Location Behavior of Pseudacteon curvatus (Diptera: Phoridae) in AlabamaT
Bertagnolli, Vicky (2016-08-05)
There are more than 20 species of Pseudacteon spp. (Diptera: Phoridae) that parasitize Solenopsis spp. (Hymenoptera: Formicidae) in their native South America. In South America, several Pseudacteon species coexist and ...
Ecology and Management of Plum Curculio, Conotrachelus nenuphar (Coleoptera: Curculionidae) in Alabama Peaches
Akotsen-Mensah, Clement (2010-08-04)
Peach production is a major industry in Alabama and many other southeastern states of the United States. Over 40,000 acres of fresh and processed peaches worth $65 million are produced annually in Alabama, Georgia, and ...
Effect of Rhizobacteria on Induction of Volatile Organic Compounds and Consequences for Corn Herbivores and Tritrophic Interactions
Disi, Joseph (2017-11-30)
Herbivorous insects depend on plants for survival. When herbivores feed on a plant the immobile plant responds directly by mobilizing it defenses, or indirectly by attracting natural enemies of the herbivore. Although plant ...
The Effects of Farmscaping Plants on the Abundance, Diversity, and Longevity of Arthropods in Organic Tomato Fields in Alabama
Nafziger, Timothy Jr (2010-04-09)
Organic farming is the practice of cultivating crops without the use of synthetic pesticides or fertilizers. Farmscaping is habitat manipulation system of planting plants near the crop to attract beneficial insects by ...
The effects of herbivory on plant mating systems
Tindle, Joel (2005-12-15)
Inbreeding is common in many plant species. Inbreeding reduces heterozygosity and increases the expression of recessive deleterious alleles that cause inbreeding depression. The level or intensity of inbreeding depression ...
Effects of Plant Growth-Promoting Rhizobacteria (PGPR) Treatment of Cotton on the Oviposition Behavior of Spodoptera exigua (Hübner) (Lepidoptera: Noctuidae)
Nangle, Kate (2012-03-29)
Treating crops with a group of naturally-occurring root bacteria, termed plant growth-promoting rhizobacteria (PGPR), has been shown to increase plant growth and enhance plant health in different ways. Although much is ...
