Spotlight on important agricultural pests
Date:6/19/2014

the Department of Botany and Plant Sciences and an organizer of the symposium. "Understanding how hempiterans and plants interact is crucial because protecting food crops and improving agricultural productivity in sustainable ways have become key issues internationally, given the world's increasing human population and the challenges of global climate change."

The symposium is expected to facilitate an exchange of ideas and foster collaborations among entomologists with expertise on hemipteran insects and their endosymbionts (the bacteria that reside within insects); plant biologists and physiologists with expertise on plant immunity to hemipterans; and plant pathologists with expertise on transmission of plant pathogens by hemipterans.

Hemipteran insects' feeding directly damages plant cells, causing cell death. The great majority of plant viruses are transmitted exclusively by hemipteran insects. In California, the Asian citrus psyllid has received enormous attention due to the transmission of the bacterial pathogen that causes citrus greening disease or Huanglongbing. Additionally, aphids, whiteflies, planthoppers, and thrips continue to devastate California's agricultural and horticultural crops.

"Hemipteran insects are some of the world's most important agricultural pests, and are challenging to control as they develop resistance to pesticides rapidly," said Isgouhi Kaloshian, a professor of nematology and an organizer of the symposium. "For this reason, both classicalinsecticide and resistance genesand cutting edge transgenic technologies are being pursued to control these devastating pests."

Two satellite workshops affiliated with the symposium will be offered:

  • A pre-symposium Electrical Penetration Graph (EPG) Workshop (June
