AbstractThe West Indian fruit fly, Anastrepha obliqua (Macquart) (Diptera: Tephritidae), is a quarantine pest in Colombia that infests economically important plants, although little is known about its population dynamics. In this study, cytochrome oxidase subunit I (COI) and NADH dehydrogenase subunit 6 (ND6) mitochondrial genes were concatenated to characterise the genetic diversity and population structure of A. obliqua, associated with two factors: (1) ecosystem differences in two geographical regions of s…
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.
