Article
Background: The southern green stinkbug (Nezara viridula) is a mayor pest of soybean. However, the mechanism underlying stinkbug resistance to soybean defenses is yet ignored. Although gut bacteria could play an essential role in tolerating plant defenses, most studies testing questions related to insect-plant-bacteria interactions have been perfo...

Full-text available
The Southern green stinkbug (N. viridula) feeds on developing soybean seeds in spite of their strong defenses against herbivory, making this pest one of the most harmful to soybean crops. To test the hypothesis that midgut bacterial community allows stinkbugs to tolerate chemical defenses of soybean developing seeds, we identified and characterized...
Data
Bacterial communities in the midgut of Nezara viridula associated to the insects hosts. (PDF)
Data
Map of Argentina (a) and a zoom of central east Argentina (b) were 26 collecting events were performed during 2012–2014. Nezara viridula adults were handpicked from secondary hosts (light grey spots), Soybean (dark grey spots) or from under de bark of Eucalyptus trees (black spots). (PDF)
Data
(a) Cysteine protease activity of N. viridula V1-V4 midgut ventricles. Statistical differences are denoted by different letters. (b) Distribution of ARISA detected bacteria among N. viridula V1-V4 midgut ventricles. Bacterial ITS fragments appear as blue peaks and LIZ 1200 weight standard fragments appear as yellow peaks. On a black square are 748...
