Evaluation of entomopathogenic fungi as a biological control agent of Cameraria ohridella, an invasive pest of Aesculus hippocastanum in Europe.
Poster Aug 18, 2009
We evaluated the potential for using entomopathogenic fungi to control the horse chestnut leaf-miner, Cameraria ohridella Deschka et Dimic (Lepidoptera, Gracillariidae). The laboratory bioassays revealed a high insecticidal activity of I. fumosorosea blastospores and conidia on both C. ohridella pupae and eggs.
The Use of GC/MS to Identify Contamination, Counterfeiting and Adulteration of SpicesPoster
Our previous study of spices was designed to evaluate the metal content in the spices for evidence of contamination by heavy metals or for adulteration and counterfeiting by notable concentrations of wear or additive metals. This study targeted the same spice samples to quantify the characteristic primary and secondary market compounds for each spice group.READ MORE
