Abstract Network analysis is an indispensable part of ecological studies. Specifically, networks have played a pivotal role in studying the diversity, dynamics and functionality of pollination systems. Recording plant-pollinator interaction networks is a laborious task, prone to missing or false negative interactions. Several methods enable the assessment of sampling completeness of the network with the use of species accumulation curves or Chao estimators. However, these methods do not provide ...

Abstract Plant essential oils (EOs) represent an area of interest for managing agricultural pests. We examined the insecticidal efficacy of seven plant EOs on the survival and mobility of the pollen beetle Brassicogethes aeneus, a primary pest of oilseed rape (Brassica napus) in Europe. Topical dosing tests showed the EO of the inner bark of Cinnamomum verum (cinnamon) to be the most effective EO examined in our study. Subsequent bioassays, exposing B. aeneus to oilseed rape plant surfaces spray...

BACKGROUND Insect Capability neuropeptides (CAP2b/CAPA-PKs) play a critical role in modulating different physiologies and behaviour in insects. In a previous proof-of-concept study, the CAP2b analogues 1895 (2Abf-Suc-FGPRLamide) and 2129 (2Abf-Suc-ATPRIamide) were reported to reduce aphid fitness when administered by injection. In the current study, the insecticidal efficacy of 1895 and 2129 on the peach potato aphid Myzus persicae was analysed by topical application, simulating a spray applicat...

The use of RNA interference (RNAi) enables the silencing of target genes in plants or plant-dwelling organisms, through the production of double stranded RNA (dsRNA) resulting in altered plant characteristics. Expression of properly synthesized dsRNAs in plants can lead to improved crop quality characteristics or exploit new mechanisms with activity against plant pests and pathogens. Genetically modified (GM) crops resistant to viruses or insects via expression of dsRNA have received authorizati...

Recent declines in insect pollinators and the increasing dependence on insect pollination in agriculture present major challenges to ensuring future food production. As part of the effort to deal with this challenge, there is a pressing need to understand growers’ perceptions with regard to pollinator diversity and crop pollination management. At present, many growers are dependent on domesticated honey bees (Apis mellifera), however, targeted management strategies involving naturally occurring ...

Insect growth regulators (IGRs) can cause abnormal growth and development in insects, resulting in incomplete metamorphosis or even death of the larvae. Ecdysone receptor and chitinase in insects p...

Numerous studies have recently reported on the discovery of bee viruses in different arthropod species and their possible transmission routes, vastly increasing our understanding of these viruses and their distribution. Here, we review the current literature on the recent advances in understanding the transmission of viruses, both on the presence of bee viruses in Apis and non-Apis bee species and on the discovery of previously unknown bee viruses. The natural transmission of bee viruses will be...
