The efficiency of sampling for aphid predators from lucerne

, : The efficiency of sampling for aphid predators from lucerne. Proceedings of the Forty Second New Zealand Weed and Pest Control Conference, Taranki Country Lodge, New Plymouth, 8-10 August, 1989: 81-85

Sweep nets and D-vac were compared for their ability to sample aphids and aphid predators from lucerne in New Zealand. The apparent relative abundance of the predators differed significantly with the sampling technique. The sweep net showed a bias for catching aphids and adult Coccinella spp. Both methods failed to detect populations of some species. The sweep net failed to catch Phalangium opilio, Lycosa spp. or larvae of Coccinella spp. that were present.

The sterility assurance level of 10(-6) is an established standard that defines the quality of sterile products. The aim of the present study was to develop a method that correlated the results from microbial-barrier testing of flexible sterile ba...

Collected samples (cassettes) were stored at -20 degrees C until testing. DNA from air samples was...

Mouse L cells transfected with a genomic clone containing the H-2Ld gene (8-5 cells) were shown to function as targets for H-2Ld-specific cytotoxic T lymphocytes (CTL). The CTL-mediated lysis of 8-5 cells was shown to be H-2Ld specific by the use...

At this wavelength, as well as at 220 nm, the absorbance was affected by mineral and organic N contents in the extract. However, at 260 nm, the UV absorbance was only related to organic N in the extract; consequently these absorbance values were l...
