Weather-based models to predict the population densities of melon fruit fly, Dacus cucurbitae Coq

, : Weather-based models to predict the population densities of melon fruit fly, Dacus cucurbitae Coq. Tropical Pest Management, 373: 211-215

Based on weekly male catches in pheromone traps and weather data for 1985 and 1986 in Pakistan, regression models were developed to predict densities of the tephritid Dacus cucurbitae (Bactrocera cucurbitae), an important pest of cucurbit and solanaceous fruits. Among the simpler linear regression models, the model SQRT (male counts + 1) = -5.37 + 0.75 (mean daily temperature in degrees Celsius) was the best, as it explained the highest (68%) variability.

Although more than half of genomic loci are believed to have antisense transcription, whether antisense transcription is involved in cytokine expression has not been studied. In this study, we show that some loci of innate immunity related genes d...

Persistent inabilities to filter irrelevant stimuli from processing are hypothesized to contribute to the development of schizophrenic symptomatology. We postulate that abnormal increases in the reactivity of cortical cholinergic inputs mediate su...

Early stage of vascular disease and diabetic kidney disease (DKD stages 1 and 2) has been under-recognized, under common practice worldwide.
