The sugarcane borer, Diatraea saccharalis (Lepidoptera: Pyralidae), is known for attacking the sugarcane culms and causes huge losses in Brazil, which is the world´s largest producer of this crop. Over millions of years, plants have evolved a variety of defense mechanisms in response to herbivore attack that can be exploited with aime of increasing resistance of agriculturally-important...
Brazil is the most important sugarcane producer in the world. The main pest of this crop is the sugarcane borer, Diatraea saccharalis (Lepidoptera: Pyralidae)which injuries culms and cause enormous yield losses. It is known that the borer attack induces expression of several genes, however, little is known about the phenotype changes of herbivore-induced sugarcane. Therefore, this proje...
Infection by phytopathogens elicits changes in plant phenotype which can affect insect vector interactions. Several studies show that insect vector behavior is determinant in virus transmission and spreading. Nevertheless, great part of these studies is related to insect vector from Sternorrhyncha suborder and little is known about beetle-transmitted viruses. In USA, Bean pod mottle vir...
