Alternatively, the rate-limiting step in host range
expansion may largely be a function of the behavioral responses of ovipositing females to host plant stimuli (Dethier 1954, Futuyma 1983).
Biology and host range
of Heterapoderopsis bicallosicollis: a potential biological control agent for Chinese tallow Triadica sebifera.
The widespread and large host range
pose a difficult pest management puzzle in Kenya.
Thus, to the extent that feeding larvae or adults run out of food, or ovipositing females are unable to locate host plants on which to place their eggs, there will be selection for increased host range
Although it has been suggested that gene loss was associated with a restricted host range
for VARV, no link has been demonstrated between gene loss and increased severity of disease.
These reports provide vital profiles of the behavior of disease organisms in various climates and soils and help delineate the pathogens' host ranges
Given its wide host range
and dispersal capability, concern has been raised that this insect may become a serious pest on many important crops across Indonesian islands and in neighboring countries.
This observation expands our knowledge of picobirnaviruses in humans and provides a clear example of how epidemiologic baseline information on virus host range
and tropism in animals may provide indications for the presence of similar viruses in the same organ system of humans.
However, little information is known about this parasitoid host range
in non-agricultural habitats or on native species in northern Florida.
Consecutive loss of DNA during the adaptation to novel hosts led to the distinct subspecies with its distinct host range
that we know today (1,4,5,11).
tests conducted in Texas, where this nematode was first discovered in 1996, revealed that it prefers to feed on hickory, pecan, and walnut trees.
cribraria on kudzu (natural host) and soybean did not differ significantly, contrary to the field host range
experiment with 12 legume species conducted by Zhang et al.
