The psyllid Bactericera trigonica Hodkinson (Hemiptera: Triozidae) is a carrot and celery pest recently described as a vector of the plant pathogenic bacterium Candidatus Liberibacter solanacearum (Lso) on Apiaceae. Detailed information on vector stylet penetration activities is essential in the study of Lso transmission. In this study we used the electrical penetration graph (EPG) technique, characterized waveforms produced during the various stylet penetration activities in carrot leaves, and corre…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
