TL;DR: Studies on the biochemical mechanisms of toxicity suggest that B. thuringiensis crystal proteins induce the formation of pores in membranes of susceptible cells, and these approaches are potentially powerful strategies for the protection of agriculturally important crops against insect damage.
Abstract: characterized by its ability to produce crystalline inclusions during spor-ulation. TIhese inclusions consist of proteins exhibiting a highly specific insecticidal activity (reviewed in references 4 and 97). Many B. thuriuigiensis strains with different insect host spectra have been identified (9). TIhey ar-e classified into different serotypes or subspecies based on their flagellar antigens. Most strains are active against larvae of certain members of the Lepidoptera, but some show toxicity against dipterian (reviewed in refer-ence 22) or coleopteran (53) species. For several cryst.al-producing strains.

TL;DR: By comparing pairs of related clades of insects that differ in mating system, this work assesses how the opportunity for postmating sexual selection affects the rate of divergent evolution of male genitalia.
Abstract: Rapid divergent evolution of male genitalia is one of the most general evolutionary trends in animals with internal fertilization; the shapes of genital traits often provide the only reliable characters for species identification1. Yet the evolutionary processes responsible for this pattern remain obscure. The long-standing lock-and-key hypothesis, still popular among taxonomists, suggests that genitalia evolve by pre-insemination hybridization avoidance; that is, hybrid inferiority drives the evolution of male genitalia with a proper mechanical fit to female genitalia. The sexual selection hypothesis2,3, in contrast, proposes that divergent evolution of genitalia is the result of sexual selection, brought about by variation in postinsemination paternity success among males. Here, by comparing pairs of related clades of insects that differ in mating system, I assess how the opportunity for postmating sexual selection affects the rate of divergent evolution of male genitalia. Genital evolution is more than twice as divergent in groups in which females mate several times than in groups in which females mate only once. This pattern is not found for other morphological traits. These findings provide strong empirical evidence in favour of a postmating sexual selection mechanism of genital evolution.

TL;DR: This dissertation aims to provide a history of web exceptionalism from 1989 to 2002, a period chosen in order to explore its roots as well as specific cases up to and including the year in which descriptions of “Web 2.0” began to circulate.
