Documentation of the side effects of pesticides on
arthropod natural enemies has expanded rapidly since the
1950's as part of an increase in non-target side effects
literature. Most reviews have been based on empirical
analysis of selected literature. The SELCTV database was
developed to make a larger information base accessible...
Preventative methods for software reverse engineering have been given
greater attention in recent times due to the increase in computational resources
and tools available to the public. The inherent security provided by encoding
source into machine code (executable form) can no longer be assumed, given the
availability of effective automated...
This laboratory bioassay focused on lethal and sublethal effects of five
insecticides (chlorantraniliprole, cyantraniliprole, spinetoram, novaluron, and lambda-cyhalothrin) and two fungicide treatments (sulfur and a mixture of copper hydroxide and
mancozeb) on the predatory mired bug Deraeocoris brevis (Uhler) (Hemiptera: Miridae) using
second instars and adult males and females. Formulated...
During summer of 1998 and 1999, 34 and 10 vineyard sites, respectively, were sampled to assess spider mite pests and associated biological control by phytoseiid mites. Vineyards studied spanned five major valleys in western Oregon where grape production occurs. Leaf samples were taken from site perimeters and centers. One leaf...
Brook trout (Salvelinus fontinalis) populations currently exist in less than half of their historic range in the state of New Jersey. The remaining populations are confined to the northwestern part of the state in the Highlands, Appalachian Ridge and Valley, and Piedmont physiographic provinces, with the exception of Mason's Run,...
