Cover Caption
Nezara viridula (Linnaeus) is a cosmopolitan plant‐feeding stink bug species known by several different common names around the world including the southern green stink bug, southern green shield bug, or green vegetable bug. Although it commonly feeds on legumes, this species can also be an important pest of other plants including cotton on which it uses its piercing‐sucking mouthparts to feed on developing reproductive structures and vector pathogens in the process. There is a growing appreciation of the role of facultative fungal endophytes in conferring protection to plants from a variety of insect herbivores. The i...

Daily expression of two circadian clock genes in compound eyes of Helicoverpa armigera: evidence for peripheral tissue circadian timing
Abstract Circadian clock genes in peripheral tissues usually play an important role in regulating the circadian rhythms. Light is the most important environmental signal for synchronizing endogenous rhythms with the daily light‐dark cycle, and compound eyes are known as the principal circadian photoreceptor for photic entrainment in most moths. However, there is little evidence for circadian timing in compound eyes. In the current study, we isolated the timeless gene, designated Ha‐tim (GenBank accession number: KM233162), from the cotton bollworm Helicoverpa armigera. Ha‐tim and period (Ha‐per) showed low messenge...

Resin foraging dynamics in Varroa destructor ‐infested hives: a case of medication of kin?
Abstract Social insects have evolved colony behavioral, physiological, and organizational adaptations (social immunity) to reduce the risks of parasitization and/or disease transmission. The collection of resin from various plants and its use in the hive as propolis is a clear example of behavioral defense. For Apis mellifera, an increased propolis content in the hive may correspond to variations in the microbial load of the colony and to a downregulation of an individual bee's immune response. However, many aspects of such antimicrobial mechanism still need to be clarified. Assuming that bacterial and fungal infection mec...

Comparison of cauliflower –insect–fungus interactions and pesticides for cabbage root fly control
Abstract Cabbage root fly (Delia radicum L.) control represents a major challenge in brassica production, therefore different management strategies for its control were tested in conventionally managed open field cauliflower production. Strategies included treatments with low‐risk methods such as nitrogen lime, the insecticide spinosad and the Beauveria bassiana ATCC 74040‐based biopesticide Naturalis. Their effects were compared with treatments based on nonformulated fungal species Metarhizium brunneum, B. bassiana, Clonostachys solani, Trichoderma atroviride, T. koningiopsis, and T. gamsii and commercial insecticides...

Association of Varroa destructor females in multiply infested cells of the honeybee Apis mellifera
Abstract The genetic diversity of Varroa destructor (Anderson & Trueman) is limited outside its natural range due to population bottlenecks and its propensity to inbreed. In light of the arms race between V. destructor and its honeybee (Apis mellifera L.) host, any mechanism enhancing population admixture of the mite may be favored. One way that admixture can occur is when two genetically dissimilar mites coinvade a brood cell, with the progeny of the foundresses admixing. We determined the relatedness of 393 pairs of V. destructor foundresses, each pair collected from a single bee brood cell (n = five colonies). We us...

Disentangling the role of management, vegetation structure, and plant quality for Orthoptera in lowland meadows
Abstract Seminatural grasslands provide habitats for various species and are important for biodiversity conservation. The understanding of the diverse responses of species and traits to different grassland management methods is therefore urgently needed. We disentangled the role of grassland management (fertilization and irrigation), vegetation structure (biomass, sward height) and plant quality (protein and fiber content) for Orthoptera communities in lowland hay meadows in Germany. We found vegetation structure to be the most important environmental category in explaining community structure of Orthoptera (species richne...
