Whiteflies and plant viruses can help each other to speed up biological invasion

...reaks of the B whitefly have also seen the gradual disappearance of some native whitefly biotypes. Many scientists around the world have been investigating why the B whitefly is so invasive. It is now widely accepted that the B whitefly is most likely to have originated from the Mediterranean/North Africa regio...

Fish extinctions alter critical nutrients in water, study shows
