Effect of microsporosis on last instar larvae of pieris brassicae


Eesti NSV Teaduste Akadeemia Toimetised Bioloogia 29(1): 32-38
Effect of microsporosis on last instar larvae of pieris brassicae
The last instar larvae of P. brassicae L. were infected with spores of the microsporidian Nosema mesnili Paillot. The titer of inoculum was 3 .times. 105 spores/individual. The effects of the microsporidian N. mesnili were a prolongation of the feeding period of the last instar larvae and a delay in the larval-pupal molting. The weight of the diseased pupae was less than the weight of the controls. The O2 consumption by the diseased larvae was higher than that by controls. On the 2nd and 6th day the diseased larvae consumed more O2 than the controls.
