Description

The scientific literature contains a wealth of new information on insect biology, ecology, behavior and management, but seldom does this research directly reach the crop advisor or agri-business professional. During the last year, numerous research papers have been published that may have relevance to crop production and management in Iowa. Articles were selected from the scientific journals Environmental Entomology or journal of Economic Entomology. These journals are published bi-monthly with Environmental Entomology focusing on the interaction of insects with the biological, chemical, and physical aspects of their environment, while journal of Economic Entomology emphasizes articles on the economic significance of insects. The objective of this presentation is to create awareness of this newly published research by briefly presenting an overview of the significant findings. Ten scientific papers were selected and the published abstracts are presented. Short excerpts from each paper and implications for pest management and crop protection in Iowa are included in a summary paragraph. A free PDF file of each paper can be accessed for more information on the research topic, materials and methods, results, and discussion by the authors at http://www.entsoc.org/Pubs/Overview/index.htm.

Focus on Insects: Snapshots of Newly Published Research in Agricultural Entomology
