Atlas of Drosophila Morphology

Wild-type and Classical Mutants

 

Academic Press, 2013.

ISBNs 9780123846884

Colección: ScienceDirect

Resumen (en inglés):

The Atlas of Drosophila Morphology: Wild-type and Classical Mutants is the guide every Drosophila researcher wished they had when first learning genetic markers, and the tool they wish they had now as a handy reference in their lab research. Previously, scientists had only poor-quality images or sketches to work with, and then scattered resources online - but no single visual resource quickly at their fingertips when explaining markers to new members of the lab, or selecting flies to do their genetic crosses, or hybrids.

This alphabetized guide to Drosophila genetic markers lays flat in the lab for easy referencing. It contains high-resolution images of flies and the appropriate marker on the left side of each page and helpful information for the marker on the facing page, such as symbol, gene name, synonyms, chromosome location, brief informative description of the morphology, and comments on marker reliability. A companion website with updated information, useful links, and additional data provided by the authors complements this extremely valuable resource.

  • Provides an opening chapter with a well-illustrated introduction to Drosophila morphology
  • Features high-resolution illustrations, including those of the most common markers used by Drosophila researchers
  • Contains brief, practical descriptions and tips for deciphering the phenotype
  • Includes material relevant for beginners and the most experienced fly pushers

Concise Illustrated Dictionary of Biocontrol Terms

 

Academic Press, 2016.

ISBNs 9780128044032

Colección: ScienceDirect

Resumen (en inglés):

The Concise Illustrated Dictionary of Biocontrol Terms includes basic terminology related to the biological control of pests, together with state-of-the-art scientific and practical terms, for expedient comprehension and analysis of present, forecasted or in situ pest management problems. In addition, it also provides the names of the most common pesticides and predators commercially available in different continents (Americas, Europe, Asia, Australia, Africa), as well as target pests and diseases of these agents, making it a tangible tool for prompt management actions. The dictionary is copiously illustrated with original pictures clarifying the most commonly used terms and the identity of organisms in biocontrol technology, with content that is both scientifically rigorous and clear.

The biological control of pests using living organisms, or products from their activities, is an independent branch of science based on multiple disciplines including general biology, zoology, entomology, phytopathology, microbiology and others. As a result, the field of biological control has its own specific terminology that needs to be understood and applied correctly across this variety of disciplines, including among those approaching the field from a different area of expertise and who may have difficulty understanding the terms used by experts in the field.

This compact illustrated guide will appeal to the scientific community working in integrated pest management disciplines, as well as those researching, studying, and working with interest in protecting natural resources at a global, local, and individual level, in a variety of locations including the lab, garden, field, or forest.

  • Enables understanding of the terminology used in biological control for professionals, researchers and students in a variety of scientific fields
  • Features clear images and photographs to help identify insects and pathogens
  • Ideal for in situ use in both the lab and field pest management protocols

Conservation Biological Control

 

Academic Press, 1998.

ISBNs 9780120781478

Colección: ScienceDirect

Resumen (en inglés): This volume is a comprehensive treatment of how the principles of ecology and conservation biology can be used to maximize biological control. Conservation Biological Control presents various means to modify or manipulate the environment to enhance the activities of natural enemies of pests. It establishes a conceptual link between ecology and the agricultural use of agents for biological control, and discusses both theoretical issues as well as practical management concerns. Certain to be interesting to ecologists and entomologists, this volume will also appeal to scientists, faculty, researchers and students interested in pest management, horticulture, plant sciences, and agriculture.

Key Features
* Contains chapters by an international team of leading authorities
* Establishes a conceptual link between ecology and the agricultural use of agents for biological control
* Discusses both theoretical issues as well as practical management concerns
* Provides specific examples of how conservation principles are used to maximize the biological control of pests

Contemporary Insect Diagnostics

The Art and Science of Practical Entomology

 

Academic Press, 2015.

ISBNs 9780124046238

Colección: ScienceDirect

Resumen (en inglés):

Contemporary Insect Diagnostics aids entomologists as they negotiate the expectations and potential dangers of the practice. It provides the reader with methods for networking with regulatory agencies, expert laboratories, first detectors, survey specialists, legal and health professionals, landscape managers, crop scouts, farmers and the lay public. This enables the practitioner and advanced student to understand and work within this network, critically important in a time when each submission takes on its own specific set of expectations and potential ramifications.

Insect diagnosticians must be knowledgeable on pests that affect human health, stored foods, agriculture, structures, as well as human comfort and the enjoyment of life. The identification and protection of the environment and the non-target animals (especially beneficial insects) in that environment is also considered a part of insect diagnostics. Additionally, Integrated Pest Management recommendations must include any of a variety of management tactics if they are to be effective and sustainable.

This greatly needed foundational information covers the current principles of applied insect diagnostics. It serves as a quick study for those who are called upon to provide diagnostics, as well as a helpful reference for those already in the trenches.

  • Includes useful case studies to teach specific points in insect diagnostics
  • Provides problem-solving guidance and recommendations for insect identification, threat potential, and management tactics, while accounting for the varying needs of the affected population or client
  • Contains numerous color photos that enhance both applicability and visual appeal, together with accompanying write-ups of the common pests

Drosophila

A Guide to Species Identification and Use

 

Academic Press, 2006.

ISBNs 9780124730526

Colección: ScienceDirect

Resumen (en inglés): Anyone wishing to tap the research potential of the hundreds of Drosophila species in addition to D.melanogaster will finally have a single comprehensive resource for identifying, rearing and using this diverse group of insects. This is the only group of higher eukaryotes for which the genomes of 12 species have been sequenced.

The fruitfly Drosophila melanogaster continues to be one of the greatest sources of information regarding the principles of heredity that apply to all animals, including humans. In reality, however, over a thousand different species of Drosophila exist, each with the potential to make their own unique contributions to the rapidly changing fields of genetics and evolution. This book, by providing basic information on how to identify and breed these other fruitflies, will allow investigators to take advantage, on a large scale, of the valuable qualities of these other Drosophila species and their newly developed genomic resources to address critical scientific questions.

* Provides easy to use keys and illustrations to identify different Drosophila species
* A guide to the life history differences of hundreds of species
* Worldwide distribution maps of hundreds of species
* Complete recipes for different Drosophila diets
* Offers an analysis on how to account for species differences in designing and conducting experiments
* Presents useful ideas of how to collect the many different Drosophila species in the wild
