Host-associated genetic differentiation in a seed parasitic weevil Rhinusa antirrhini (Coleoptera: Curculionidae) revealed by mitochondrial and nuclear sequence data
(Wiley-Blackwell, Hoboken, 2010)
Plant feeding insects and the plants they feed upon represent an ecological association that is thought to be a key factor for the diversification of many plant feeding insects, through differential adaptation to different ...
Euscelis incisus (Cicadellidae, Deltocephalinae), a natural vector of 16SrIII-B phytoplasma causing multiple inflorescence disease of Cirsium arvense
(Wiley-Blackwell, Hoboken, 2015)
We investigated multiple inflorescence disease of Cirsium arvense (CMI) and its association with phytoplasmas of the 16SrIII-B subgroup, potential natural vector(s) and reservoir plant(s). From five locations in northern ...
First report of Phytophthora ramorum on Rhododendron sp in Serbia
(Wiley-Blackwell, Hoboken, 2009)
Revision of Mecinus heydenii species complex (Curculionidae): integrative taxonomy reveals multiple species exhibiting host specialization
(Wiley-Blackwell, Hoboken, 2014)
A combined taxonomic, morphological, molecular and biological study revealed that the species presently named Mecinus heydenii is actually composed of five different species: M.heydenii Wencker, 1866; M.raphaelis Baviera ...
Morphophysiological traits and atrazine sensitivity in Chenopodium album L.
(John Wiley & Sons Ltd, Chichester, 2008)
BACKGROUND: A Chenopodium album L. biotype surviving in atrazine-treated Serbian corn fields (VC) was compared against atrazine-susceptible (S) and atrazine-resistant (R) standards. RESULTS: Atrazine (2 kg ha(-1)) killed ...
Host-associated genetic divergence and taxonomy in the Rhinusa pilosa Gyllenhal species complex: an integrative approach
(Wiley-Blackwell, Hoboken, 2015)
A combined taxonomic, morphological, molecular and biological study revealed that stem-galling weevils from the genus Rhinusa associated with toadflaxes from the genus Linaria (Plantaginaceae) are composed of three different ...
Molecular phylogenetic analysis of archival tissue reveals the origin of a disjunct southern African-Palaearctic weevil radiation
(Wiley-Blackwell, Hoboken, 2013)
Aim We test three alternative hypotheses for the disjunct Mediterranean-southern African distribution of endophagous weevils within the genera Rhinusa and Gymnetron (Coleoptera: Curculionidae): (1) a Palaearctic origin ...
Morphological, molecular and biological evidence reveal two cryptic species in Mecinus janthinus Germar (Coleoptera, Curculionidae), a successful biological control agent of Dalmatian toadflax, Linaria dalmatica (Lamiales, Plantaginaceae)
(Wiley-Blackwell, Hoboken, 2011)
A combined morphological, molecular and biological study shows that the weevil species presently named Mecinus janthinus is actually composed of two different cryptic species: M. janthinus Germar, 1821 and M. janthiniformis ...
Molecular characteristics of phytoplasmas associated with Flavescence doree in clematis and grapevine and preliminary results on the role of Dictyophara europaea as a vector
(Wiley-Blackwell Publishing, Inc, Malden, 2009)
A survey was conducted over several years in Italy and the Balkans in order to gain an understanding of the relationship between the Flavescence doree (FD) phytoplasma isolates found in clematis and grapevine. A total of ...
Controlled enzymatic hydrolysis for improved exploitation of the antioxidant potential of wheat gluten
(Elsevier Science Bv, Amsterdam, 2017)
The aim of the study was to find the optimal operational and process parameters for the enzymatic hydrolysis of wheat gluten in a batch stirred bioreactor regarding both degree of hydrolysis and antioxidant capacity of the ...
