Mathematical modeling of genetic pest management through female-specific lethality: Is one locus better than two?

EVOLUTIONARY APPLICATIONS, 14(6), 1612–1622.

By: M. Vella n, F. Gould n & A. Lloyd n

author keywords: eradication; female killing; mathematical modeling; multilocus; population genetics

Variation in performance on cry1Ab-transformed and nontransgenic rice varieties among populations of Scirpophaga incertulas (Lepidoptera : Pyralidae) from Luzon Island, Philippines

JOURNAL OF ECONOMIC ENTOMOLOGY, 93(6), 1773–1778.

By: J. Bentur*, M. Cohen* & F. Gould n

author keywords: Scirpophaga incertulas; Bacillus thuringiensis; rice; resistance management
MeSH headings : Animals; Bacillus thuringiensis / genetics; Bacillus thuringiensis Toxins; Bacterial Proteins / genetics; Bacterial Toxins; Endotoxins / genetics; Female; Hemolysin Proteins; Lepidoptera; Oryza / genetics; Pest Control, Biological; Philippines; Plants, Genetically Modified
TL;DR: Variation in performance under greenhouse conditions among seven populations of Scirpophaga incertulas from Luzon Island, Philippines, on three rice varieties indicated that there was little variation in general vigor among the S.incertulas populations and thus that the variation in performance on cry1Ab-transformed IR58 was probably attributable to differences in susceptibility to Cry1Ab.

author keywords: Heliothis virescens; tobacco budworm; Bacillus thuringiensis; endotoxin; crystal proteins; insecticide resistance; histopathology
TL;DR: Two strains of the tobacco budworm Heliothis virescens, one selected in the laboratory for resistance to Cry1Ac crystal protein from Bacillus thuringiensis and an unselected control strain, were exposed to sublethal doses of pure Cry1A crystal proteins. (via Semantic Scholar)

TL;DR: The results suggest that plants expressing high levels of a nonhomologous Bt protein should be able to overcome or at the very least, significantly delay, broad spectrum Bt-resistance development in the field. (via Semantic Scholar)

Spread of resistance in spatially extended regions of transgenic cotton: Implications for management of Heliothis virescens (Lepidoptera: Noctuidae)

Journal of Economic Entomology, 92(1), 1–16.

By: S. Peck*, F. Gould* & S. Ellner*

TL;DR: It is found that the spatial scale and the temporal pattern of refuges can have a strong effect on the development of resistance to B. thuringiensis in transgenic cotton and delays in larval development time on Bt cotton may either increase or decrease the rate of resistance development, depending on complex interactions with the length of the growing season.
