AbstractThe sterile insect technique (SIT) is a potential tool for the management and eradication of incursions of Queensland fruit fly, Bactrocera tryoni (Froggatt) (Diptera: Tephritidae). Mass-produced B. tryoni are irradiated during the pupal stage to induce reproductive sterility. As increasing irradiation dosage results in declining fly quality, determining the lowest possible dosage that induces sufficient reproductive sterility is of particular interest. However, in calculating reproductive sterility, …
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.
