- ... Skin cancer in humans has risen tremendously due to the increased exposure of solar ultraviolet radiation (UVR). Solar UV-A (400-315 nm) and UV-B (315-280 nm) radiation are associated with skin cancer but can also disrupt the development of a variety of other metazoans. A third form of solar UVR, UV-C (280-100 nm), is largely absorbed by the atmosphere without complications to human health; howeve ...

- ... Insect parasitoids are often manipulated to improve biological control programs for various arthropod pests. Volatile compounds can be a relevant cue used by most parasitoid hymenoptera for host or host microhabitat location. Here, we studied olfactory responses of the braconid Asobara japonica Belokobylskij, an Asiatic endoparasitoid of the invasive pest Drosophila suzukii (Matsumura), toward its ...
