TL;DR: A relatively strong and consistent QTL for insect resistance in both BCB and BCT on chromosome 1 was observed that was not associated with any trichome traits, suggesting the trichomes may not account for all of the resistance observed in these progenies. (via Semantic Scholar)

Glandular trichomes of Solanum berthaultii alter host preference of the Colorado potato Beetle, Leptinotarsa decemlineata

Entomologia Experimentalis Et Applicata, 70(3), 217–225.

author keywords: COLEOPTERA; CHRYSOMELIDAE; LEPTINOTARSA DECEMLINEATA; COLORADO POTATO BEETLE; SOLANACEAE; SOLANUM BERTHAULTII; PLANT RESISTANCE; GLANDULAR TRICHOMES; HOST PREFERENCE; BEHAVIOR
TL;DR: Evidence is provided that the resistance of S. berthaultii is associated with feeding deterrents localized in the glandular trichomes, that it possesses more than one mechanism of resistance to the Colorado potato beetle, and that the expression of resistance is dependent on the developmental stage of the insect.

Behavior of Pyrethroid-Susceptible and -Resistant Heliothis Virescens (F.) (Lepidoptera: Noctuidae) Larvae on Cotton Treated with Insecticides

Journal of Economic Entomology, 85(6), 2058–2063.

By: J. Benedict*, M. Treacy*, D. Ring* & G. Yencho*

author keywords: HELIOTHIS-VIRESCENS; BEHAVIORAL RESISTANCE; PYRETHROID RESISTANCE
TL;DR: Under field conditions, use of behavioral active chemicals like chlordimeform could alter the behavior of wild H. virescens larvae so that flower bud damage is reduced and larval acquisition of insecticide residues is increased. (via Semantic Scholar)

Economic Injury Level, Action Threshold, and a Yield-loss Model for the Pea Aphid, Acyrthosiphon pisum (Homoptera: Aphididae), on Green Peas, Pisum sativum

Journal of Economic Entomology, 79(6), 1681–1687.

By: G. Yencho, L. Getzin & G. Lono

TL;DR: A generalized, nonlinear equation relating pea yield to accumulated aphid feeding days (AFD) is described, which approximates two phases of a sigmoid infestation-yield curve and a lower minimum yield plateau is hypothesized. (via Semantic Scholar)
