TL;DR: A rating chart is given which enables easy and accurate field assessment of damage by root-knot nematodes on many crops, based on the percentage and types of roots galled, which should be of use both to nematologists and untrained field workers.
Abstract: A rating chart is given which enables easy and accurate field assessment of damage by root-knot nematodes (Meloidogyne spp.) on many crops, based on the percentage and types of roots galled. It should be of use both to nematologists and untrained field workers.

TL;DR: A key is presented to aid the identification of pupal cases of 46 species of whitefly often found infesting economic plants around the world, and the general pupal case morphology of each species is illustrated.
Abstract: A key is presented to aid the identification of pupal cases of 46 species of whitefly often found infesting economic plants around the world. The general pupal case morphology of each species is illustrated, together with more detailed figures of some key characters. The key is designed for use with slide‐mounted specimens, and techniques for their preparation are described. The synonymy of Bemisia hancocki with B. afer is discussed.

TL;DR: It is concluded that research on control strategies is urgently needed but requires sound knowledge of the ecology of the snail in its natural habitat.
Abstract: The golden apple snail, Pomacea canaliculata (Lamarck, 1822) (Mesogastropoda: Pilidae), has recently been introduced to several Asian countries where it has unexpectedly developed into a pest of rice Reasons for the introduction as well as the economic and ecological impact of the snail are described Most farmers have resorted to chemical control, with implications for human health and the environment Integrated snail management practices are summarized including the use of the snail as a valuable aquatic resource It is concluded that research on control strategies is urgently needed but requires sound knowledge of the ecology of the snail in its natural habitat

TL;DR: Development of eggs and immature stages inside grain kernels was completely inhibited by eugenol treatment, and Eugenol was also highly repellent to the four beetle species tested with overall repellency in the range of 80- 100%.
Abstract: Toxicity and protectant potential of eugenol against Sitophilus granarius, Sitophilus zeamais, Tribolium castaneum and Prostephanus truncatus was investigated in the laboratory using contact toxicity, grain treatment and repellency assays. Eugenol applied topically, impregnated on filter papers, whole grains or glass pebbles was highly toxic to all the four species. Beetle mortality was dosage-dependent. Eugenol was more effective on grain than on filter paper discs since the lowest dosage of 1 mul/kg of grain killed all the beetles within 24 h. The effectiveness of eugenol was significantly reduced by the length of storage after application. For grains bioassayed after 10 days of storage following treatment mortality decresed to less than 30% even with the highest dose of 10mul/kg. Eugenol was also highly repellent to the four beetle species tested with overall repellency in the range of 80- 100%. Development of eggs and immature stages inside grain kernels was completely inhibited by eugenol treatment.
