AbstractThe dose-response effects of gamma radiation on the carob or date moth Ectomyelois ceratoniae (Zeller) (Lepidoptera: Pyralidae) were studied as a basic requirement for the initiation of an SIT/F1 sterility program. In this study, the effect of gamma radiation was determined on fecundity, egg hatch, longevity, and level of inherited sterility in the carob moth. Newly emerged virgin male and female carob moth adults were exposed to increasing irradiation doses (100, 150, 200, 250, 300, and 350 Gy) to …
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.
