The collected pupae and the obtained by rearing of larvae were transferred to individual 500mL glass jar closed with voile cloth, where they remained until the emergence of the lepidopteran
imagoes or their parasitoids.
Yet our work, and that of many others, shows that local adaptation across a wide array of life-history influences can be a very real concern for lepidopteran
populations in decline.
In Africa, the productivity of these crops is very low partly due to the damage caused by lepidopteran
stemborers (Haile and Hofsvang 2002).
(Hesperiidae, Papillionidae) also visited P.
We carried out a quantitative survey of lepidopteran
caterpillars associated with three species of Byrsonima (Malpighiaceae) in Central Brazil.
However, very few studies are available that compare the sensory structures and sensory genes present on the mouthparts among the larvae of lepidopteran
Primary protein digestion in lepidopteran
larvae relies mostly on trypsin- and chymotrypsin-like serine protease activities.
With a wingspan of up to 10 cm, this impressive lepidopteran
is dappled in deep blue and pale yellow with crimson on the hind wings, wings that also sport the narrow tail filaments of the species' name.
Besides, transgenic rice plants against Xanthomonasoryzae and lepidopteran
were also generated through the expression of ferredoxin-like amphipathic (ap1) gene and insecticidal crystal (cry2A*) gene respectively (Tang et al.
Field trial was conducted for screening of ten promising short duration pigeonpea genotypes (AL 1495, AL 1735, AL 1747, AL 1770, AL 1790, PA 409, PUSA-2012-1, PA 406, AL 201, PAU 881) along with two checks, Manak and UPAS 120 against lepidopteran
pod borers and pod fly at Norman E.
eggs were sampled from plants that were selected at random.
To avoid this damage, a protein Cry1Ac is introduced, to form BT Brinjal which has resistant against lepidopteran
