Nematode-based indices in soil ecology: Application, utility, and future directions
The health and functioning of soil ecosystems are the foundation of sustainable food production and land management. Of key importance in achieving sustainability, is the frequent measurement of soil health, and indices ...
First report of an entomopathogenic nematode from continental Portugal
(Parasitological Institute of SAS, Košice, 2007)
In continental Portugal no information is available concerning the occurrence of entomopathogenic nematodes. During a survey in several different habitats from the southern regions of the country, several isolates where ...
Effect of an Alltech soil health product on entomopathogenic nematodes, root-knot nematodes and on the growth of tomato plants in the greenhouse
(The Society of Nematologists, 2020-03-19)
An organic product that consists of proprietary blend of fermentation and plant extracts with micronutrients (ACS 5075, Alltech®, Inc., Nicholasville, KY USA) was evaluated against four strains of entomopathogenic nematodes ...
Characterisation of the complete mitochondrial genome of the insect-parasitic nematode Heterorhabditis bacteriophora: an idiosyncratic gene order and the presence of multiple long non-coding regions
(Brill Academic Publishers, 2021-06)
We present here the complete mtDNA genome (mitogenome) of Heterorhabditis bacteriophora, an important biological control agent of soil-dwelling insect pests in agriculture and horticulture. This is the first description ...
Bumblebee (Hymenoptera: Apidae) sample storage for a posteriori molecular studies: Interactions between sample storage and DNA-extraction techniques.
(Institute of Entomology, 2013)
A global decline in pollinator abundance and diversity has demanded increased research attention to the ecology and genetics of bumblebees. However, as progressively more restrictions are placed on sampling for insects, ...
Gene editing in the context of an increasingly complex genome
(BioMed Central, 2018)
The reporting of the first draft of the human genome in 2000 brought with it much hope for the future in what was felt as a paradigm shift toward improved health outcomes. Indeed, we have now mapped the majority of variation ...
