Relative food preference of Dysdercus koenigii (Hemiptera: Pyrrhocoridae)

, : Relative food preference of Dysdercus koenigii (Hemiptera: Pyrrhocoridae). Annals of the Entomological Society of America 65(3): 762-763

The relative feeding preference of Dysdercus koenigii (F.) for three malvaceous plants, namely, hollyhock (Althaea rosea), gurhal (Hibiscus rosa-sinensis) and cotton (Gossypium hirsutum), in the light and dark was studied in the laboratory in India. In both light and dark conditions, hollyhock was the most attractive, followed by gurhal and cotton in that order.

Despite their physiological importance, hyaluronidases (HAases) have long been "neglected enzymes," due, presumably, in part to the lack of rapid, sensitive assays. Currently, the colorimetric Morgan-Elson assay method, which is based up...

Extragonadal germ cell tumors (EGCT) are rare. They are biologically distinct from their testicular counterparts. Information regarding these tumors from the Far East is limited. More investigations are warranted to define the optimal...
