Article
South American invasive plants in the genus Ludwigia (Onagraceae) degrade many riparian and aquatic ecosystems worldwide. Biological control may aid in the management of these exotic weeds, but data on the host specificity of Ludwigia natural enemies is limited. The biology and host range of Sudauleutes bosqi Hustache (Coleoptera: Curculionidae), a...

Environmental education seeks to foster an appreciation for nature and the impact of humans on it while introducing citizens to scientific thinking. Biological invasions affect different aspects of life on earth and mandate urgent management actions. Education and public awareness are strongly recommended for successful prevention and management of...
Article
Exotic water primroses are aggressive invaders in both aquatic and riparian ecosystems worldwide. Water primrose [Ludwigia hexapetala (Hook. & Arn.) Zardini, Gu & P. H. Raven], floating primrose-willow [Ludwigia peploides (Kunth) P. H. Raven subsp. peploides], floating primrose-willow [Ludwigia peploides (Kunth) P. H. Raven subsp. montevidensis (Sp...

Exotic water primroses (Ludwigia spp.) are aggressive invaders in aquatic ecosystems worldwide. To date, management of exotic Ludwigia spp. has been limited to physical and chemical control methods. Biological control provides an alternative approach for the management of invasive Ludwigia spp. but little is known regarding the natural enemies of t...

The yellow flag, Iris pseudacorus L. (Iridaceae) is an emergent perennial wetland plant native to the Palearctic region and has been dispersed worldwide as an ornamental plant. In the introduced range, it is highly invasive in natural and artificial waterbodies. Currently, this species is difficult to manage and continues to spread, causing signifi...
Article
The host range of the thrips Liothrips ludwigi was investigated using single- and multi-generational no-choice nymphal development and oviposition tests. Development, oviposition, and egg viability were quantified when L. ludwigi were fed three exotic Ludwigia species and seven USA native plant species. Liothrips ludwigi completed development and o...
Article
Cactoblastis cactorum's unintended arrival to Florida and its expansion in North America represent a threat to Opuntia‐based agriculture and natural ecosystems in the United States and Mexico. Apanteles opuntiarum attacks C. cactorum and is a potential biocontrol agent due to its specificity, wide distribution and occurrence. Laboratory rearing met...
Conference Paper
Although Argentina treasures a vast area covered by wetlands, many of them are negatively impacted by the presence of Alien Invasive Plants. Iris pseudacorus L. (Iridaceae) (Yellow Flag) is an alien invasive weed that is native to Europe, northern Africa and western Asia, and introduced around the world mainly for its ornamental value. In the intro...
