Data from: Varying the spatial arrangement of synthetic herbivore-induced plant volatiles and companion plants to improve conservation biological control

1.Conservation biological control aims to control pests by promoting wild populations of natural enemies. One challenge is to attract and retain efficient natural enemies in crop fields, which often are a suboptimal environment. Towards this goal, the attract-and-reward strategy relies on combining attractive synthetically produced herbivore-induced plant volatiles (HIPVs) with companion plants (non-crop plants which provide alternative resources to the targeted natural enemies). Although severely overlooked, the spatial arrangement of HIPV dispensers and rewards inside...

Data from: Genetic variation and structure of Diaphorina citri (Hemiptera:Liviidae) in populations from México

The Asian citrus psyllid, Diaphorina citri Kuwayama, is native to Asia but has recently invaded North America. Asian citrus psyllid is a significant pest of citrus crops by its direct feeding but, more importantly, as the vector of the bacterium ‘Candidatus Liberibacter asiaticus’, which causes Huanglongbing disease. Asian citrus psyllid was first found in México in 2001 and 2002 and, since then, has spread quickly across the country, suggesting rapid adaptation to new environments. Yet,...
