8. Evaluation of chemical composition of various parts of wheat stalk.

Chemical characteristics of raw material influence the development of technologies and methods of pulping. Wheat straw as an available and abundant agricultural residue has been used in some developing countries as an alternative material in papermaking, and this indicates its importance as fibrous ...

15. Solar heating of seeds: a low cost method to control bruchid (Callosobruchus spp.) attack during storage of pigeonpea.

In 1998, a trial was carried out at Patancheru, Andhra Pradesh, India, to study the effect of solar heating on the storage pest Callosobruchus maculatus in pigeon pea. It was observed that solar heating raised the temperature in filled 1-kg, polyethylene seed bags to 65°C each day. Solar heating of ...

18. Unequal coupling between locomotor pacemakers of the German cockroach, Blattella germanica (L.).

Male adult B. germanica expressed robust locomotor circadian rhythmicity under 28°C and constant darkness (DD) conditions. By surgically severing the connections between the optic lobes and midbrain and their subsequent regeneration, it was demonstrated that the locomotor circadian pacemaker was...

19. Degradation of fluorene, anthracene, phenanthrene, fluoranthene, and pyrene lacks connection to the production of extracellular enzymes by Pleurotus ostreatus and Bjerkandera adusta.

The degradation of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAH) was studied in liquid cultures of white-rot fungi Bjerkandera adusta and Pleurotus ostreatus during 7 weeks of cultivation. During only 3 days of incubation, B. adusta removed 56% and 38% of fluorene and anthracene, while P. ostreatus...

20. The development of ideas in biological control applied to forest products.

After giving an overview of biological control agents and their application to forest products, the review considers the main biocontrol mechanisms that are thought to operate in wood. Competition for nutrients, antibiosis, mycoparasitism and production of extracellular enzymes have all been...

21. Lignocellulose degradation by Phanerochaete chrysosporium: purification and characterization of the main α-galactosidase.

The main α-galactosidase was purified to homogeneity, in 30% yield, from a solid culture of Phanerochaete chrysosporium on 1 part wheat bran/2 parts thermomechanical softwood pulp. It is a glycosylated tetramer of 50 kDa peptide chains, remarkably stable, with crude extracts losing no activity over ...

22. Production of polygalacturonase and increase of longitudinal gas permeability in southern pine by brown-rot and white-rot fungi.

Hydrolysis of bordered and pinoid pits may be a key event during colonization of wood by decay fungi. Although pits are numerous, studies of pectin-hydrolysing enzymes in wood decay fungi are scarce, probably because of the relatively low content (less than 4%) of pectin in wood and because of the...

23. Survival over the winter of Rhyzopertha dominica F. (Coleoptera: Bostrichidae) in hot spots caused by improper grain storage technology: the first record in the Czech Republic.

The survival of dense populations of Rhyzopertha dominica in stored grain hot spots in the Czech Republic during winter months was documented for the first time. Improper storage of grain causes subsurface hot zones, which seem to provide conditions for pest overwintering and become the source of...

A key to frequently intercepted lepidopterous larvae, designed for U.S. Department of Agriculture, Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (USDA, APHIS) identifiers at ports in the USA, was last revised in 1986. Since then many changes have occurred in the classification, nomenclature, and the...
