Abstract The use of nine items of personal protective equipment (PPE) during pesticide spray preparation and spraying was studied among farmers of Moghan Plain region, Iran, along with factors affecting PPE use behavior. Face-to-face interviews with the farmers based on a structured questionnaire were conducted. Low levels of PPE use were reported by almost half of the farmers (48.3%), while 30.5% showed moderate levels and 21.2% showed high levels of PPE use. Long-sleeved shirt was the most com...

Background Aphid infestation of switchgrass (Panicum virgatum) has the potential to reduce yields and biomass quality. Although switchgrass-greenbug (Schizaphis graminum; GB) interactions have been studied at the whole plant level, little information is available on plant defense responses at the molecular level.

Growing evidence for global pollinator decline is causing concern for biodiversity conservation and ecosystem services maintenance. Neonicotinoid pesticides have been identified or suspected as a key factor responsible for this decline. We assessed the global exposure of pollinators to neonicotinoids by analyzing 198 honey samples from across the world. We found at least one of five tested compounds (acetamiprid, clothianidin, imidacloprid, thiacloprid, and thiamethoxam) in 75% of all samples, 4...

Neonicotinoid seed dressings have caused concern world-wide. We use large field experiments to assess the effects of neonicotinoid-treated crops on three bee species across three countries (Hungary, Germany, and the United Kingdom). Winter-sown oilseed rape was grown commercially with either seed coatings containing neonicotinoids (clothianidin or thiamethoxam) or no seed treatment (control). For honey bees, we found both negative (Hungary and United Kingdom) and positive (Germany) effects durin...

Although various forms of linkage map construction software are widely available, there is a distinct lack of packages for use in the R statistical computing environment (R Core Team 2017). This article introduces the ASMap linkage map construction R package which contains functions that use the efficient MSTmap algorithm (Wu, Bhat, Close, and Lonardi 2008) for clustering and optimally ordering large sets of markers. Additional to the construction functions, the package also contains a suite of ...

Abstract QTL IciMapping is freely available public software capable of building high-density linkage maps and mapping quantitative trait loci (QTL) in biparental populations. Eight functionalities are integrated in this software package: (1) BIN: binning of redundant markers; (2) MAP: construction of linkage maps in biparental populations; (3) CMP: consensus map construction from multiple linkage maps sharing common markers; (4) SDL: mapping of segregation distortion loci; (5) BIP: mapping of ad...

Abstract The greenbug aphid, Schizaphis graminum (Rondani) is an important cereal pest, periodically threatening wheat yields in the United States and around the world. The single dominant gene, Gb3 -based resistance is highly durable against prevailing greenbug biotypes under field conditions; however, the molecular mechanisms of Gb3 -mediated defense responses remain unknown. We used Affymetrix GeneChip Wheat Genome Arrays to investigate the transcriptomics of host defense responses upon green...
