Scolytid beetles (Coleoptera: Curculionidae: Scolytinae) are a large group of beetles associated with many tree species. Some species consume dead wood and vector an array of fungi which contribute to recycling of organic material, so are often an important component of forest ecology. However, populations can increase to pest levels. In this review, we look at options for control of scolytid ...

IPM for tropical crops: rice.

Heinrichs, E. A. et al. [2017]

Rice is a staple food and the foundation of national stability and economic growth in many developing countries. Rice pests are major biotic constraints limiting rice production globally. This review discusses the biology, ecology, global distribution and plant damage and yield losses caused by insect pests, plant diseases, nematodes, rats and weeds. The interactions among insects, weeds and d ...

This review lists 132 species of insect and mite pests associated with date palm (<i>Phoenix dactylifera</i> L.) grown worldwide. These species are distributed among eight insect orders and 30 families, besides one order of mite comprising nine families. Most of the species (52) were reported on the leaf (frond), while 26 species were associated with the roots and trunk. Green fruits with thei ...

The tomato borer <i>Tuta absoluta</i> (Meyrick) (Lepidoptera: Gelechiidae) evolved from a local South American concern to become a worldwide threat in tomato production less than three decades after initially spreading throughout South America, and eventually through Europe, North Africa and Middle East with an increased likelihood of invading Asia. Despite the studies performed thus far on th ...

RNA interference (RNAi), a post-transcriptional gene silencing method discovered in 1998, has been used in basic research in almost every area of biology to silence genes in order to learn about their function. This technology also has many potential applications in molecular medicine, in agriculture and many other fields. RNAi has been extensively used to understand the molecular basis of phy ...

Acoustic technology has been applied for many years in studies of insect communication and in the monitoring of calling-insect population levels, geographic distributions and species diversity, as well as in the detection of cryptic insects in soil, wood, container crops and stored products. Acoustic devices of various sizes and power levels have been used successfully to trap insect pests tha ...

Pesticides based on microorganisms and their products have proven to be highly effective, species specific and eco-friendly in nature, leading to their adoption in pest management strategies around the world. The microbial biopesticide market constitutes about 90% of total biopesticides and there is ample scope for further development in agriculture and public health, although there are challe ...

Biological control is an important component of pest management systems. It was generally considered safe and sustainable until the validity of this consensus was challenged by researchers who pointed out that there was a lack of study, and hence evidence, to support it and provided examples of non-target impacts. Biosafety of biological control subsequently received considerable attention fro ...
