- ... The long coevolutionary history between sunflowers (Helianthus annuus, Asterales: Asteraceae) and arthropods in the northern Great Plains has resulted in a commonly grown oilseed crop that harbors a large diversity of insects. A bioinventory of foliar and subterranean arthropods was performed in 22 sunflower fields over a period of three site years in central and eastern South Dakota. Overall, 467 ...

- ... Most insects must accumulate certain metabolites before entering diapause by virtue of photoperiodic regulation. Photoperiods influence diapause beyond the maternal generation in Cotesia vestalis (Haliday) (Hymenoptera: Braconidae), which is one of the most important larval endoparasitoid of Plutella xylostella (Linnaeus) (Lepidoptera: Plutellidae). The accumulation of metabolites in the non-diapa ...
