Different types of polyphagous true bug pests are present in Serbia and countries in the region, many of which stand out as significant pests of agricultural crops. Among the harmful true bugs, the green vegetable bug, Nezara viridula Linnaeus, 1758 and the brown marble bug Halyomorpha halys Stål, 1855 (Hemiptera: Pentatomidae) are the species that...

Pedunculate oak ( Quercus robur L.) is one of the most significant broadleaved tree species in Europe. However, various abiotic and biotic agents have influenced pedunculate oak forests, among which drought stress has been frequently described as the main driver of this species forests decline. In this study we assessed relative expression profile...

Maize (Zea mays Linnaeus, 1753) is economically the most important crop in Serbia, while the European corn borer Ostrinia nubilalis (Hübner, 1796) (Lepidoptera: Crambidae) is the its most significant pest of this crop. One of the potentially successful and environmentally friendly method for biological control of this pest is based on the usage of...

Background: The European corn borer (ECB), Ostrinia nubilalis (Hübner, 1796) (Lepidoptera: Crambidae), is the major pest of maize (Zea mays Linnaeus, 1753) in Serbia. One potential method for managing this pest is the augmentative release of naturally occuring egg parasitoids of the genus Trichogramma. The first step in this process is accurately i...

Ecosystem services are a relatively new concept in forestry. While the current forestry practice still describes non-timber forest products as secondary, the concept of ecosystem services originating from FAO and researchers of ecosystem services equally emphasises the economic significance of non-timber products and services forest ecosystems prov...

Negative effects of drought on forest trees are not new phenomena. In the past years, long episodes of drought have been associated with large-scale forest mortality and decreased forest-productivity. So far not many studies, using transcriptomics and proteomics, have been done to characterize the responses of forest trees exposed to drought. Exist...
