Caccone speculates that some tortoises on the southern islands may have floated on the strong ocean currents that flow northwest to Pinta.
In 2003, a joint expedition by the Galapagos National Park and the Oviedo, Fl.-based Chelonian Research Institute failed to find any signs of tortoise life on Pinta Island but did uncover the skeletons of 15 former male residents.
"We had it all along but didn't know it until we had the new samples from Pinta," Caccone says.
Discovering more Pinta tortoises would be "thrilling," agrees Johannah Barry, president of the Galapagos Conservancy, "but it would probably not be critical to the restoration of the Pinta Island ecosystem." Beyond the small chance of finding enough individuals to constitute a robust population, she says, back breeding any half-relatives to recover a pure Pinta bloodline could take decades.
Este cultivo presenta factores que limitan su produccion en campo, como las plagas de insectos que generan perdidas economicas; destacan la mosca pinta (Aeneolamia spp.
Se han realizado diferentes estudios relacionados con los factores que influyen en la incidencia de la mosca pinta en la cana de azucar, pero usualmente se estudian los factores por separado.
(2006) estudiaron algunos factores bioticos y abioticos relacionados con la mosca pinta en un modelo predictivo de riesgo, y evaluaron de manera probabilistica su contribucion a la presencia de poblaciones daninas de esta plaga.
Se realizaron conteos y mediciones de algunos factores que se supusieron afectan las poblaciones de adultos de mosca pinta. Los factores bioticos fueron: poblaciones de ninfas, cobertura de maleza y nivel de infestacion de adultos del ano previo.
