|A Molecular Approach to Evaluating the Ecological Host Range of European Peristenus spp. (Hymenoptera: Braconidae), Parasitoids of Lygus spp. (Hemiptera: Miridae)|
|(Talk - President's Prize)|
|Molecular methods for detecting and identifying parasitoids within their hosts may expedite ecological studies prior to introducing exotic biological control agents. To determine the utility of molecular diagnostics in non-target risk assessment of European parasitoids of Lygus (Hemiptera: Miridae), a multiplex PCR assay for Peristenus (Hymenoptera: Braconidae) was applied to field-collected target and non-target mirids. Parasitism levels and parasitoid species composition based on rearing, dissection, and molecular analysis were compared.|
Oral presentations (regular and President's prize) will last 12 minutes plus 3 minutes for questions and discussion. Presentations in PowerPoint only, using common Windows fonts for text and symbols and with limited use of animation. Facilities for loading oral presentations from USB storage devices or CD-R/DVD formats will be provided at designated times during the meeting.
