The probing behavior and feeding activity of green peach aphid, Myzus persicae
Sulzer, on Bacillus thuringiensis ssp. tenebrionis- transgenic potatoes, insecticide
treated potatoes, and host plants with different preference were electronically
monitored. I found that first, transgenic potatoes had no effect on green peach aphid
probing suggesting that transmission of...
The influence of oil sprays on the field spread of the aphid-borne
bean yellow mosaic virus (BYMV) in bean was studied in 1972
and 1973. Oil sprays failed to significantly reduce virus spread in
the 1972 BYMV experiment. However, the data did suggest that the
efficiency of the oil sprays...
This study describes and quantifies some microprocesses of malaria
transmission including blood vessel location by Anopheles stephensi and
sporozoites delivery of An. stephensi infected by Plasmodium berghei. The
study models the effects of malaria parasite-induced changes in probing
behavior and mosquito mortality on disease transmisson. Finally, host, vector,
