- ... Use of plant secondary metabolic compounds is an important method for insect pest control. In this study, the survival, development, and reproduction of Bemisia tabaci (Gennadius) (Hemiptera: Aleyrodidae) MEAM1 cryptic species were compared over two consecutive generations on three cotton cultivars of different gossypol levels. Both cotton cultivar and generation significantly affected the fitness ...

- ... Atmospheric carbon dioxide concentration is expected to rise in the coming decades. Rising atmospheric CO₂levels may alter plant‐insect‐parasitoid associations due to the indirect effects of CO₂enrichment on phytochemicals important for herbivore and parasitoid nutrition. Tritrophic effects of elevated CO₂on Bt cotton (GK‐12) and non‐transgenic (Simian‐3, or S3) cotton [Gossypium hirsutum L. (Malv ...
