    • Lemon and Schinus polygama essential oils enhance male mating success of Anastrepha fraterculus 

      Ruiz, María Josefina; Suárez, María L.; Jofré Barud, Flavia; Goane, Lucía; Valladares, Gabriela A.; Bachmann, Guillermo Enrique; Belliard, Silvina Ahnahi; Páez Jerez, Paula; Zamora Belli, Ana Lucía; García Méndez, F. Daniela; Segura, Diego Fernando; Lopez, María Liza; Vera, María Teresa (Wiley, 2020-11-27)
      The sterile insect technique (SIT) is an environmentally friendly pest control method that relies on the introduction of sterility into the pest population by the release of sterile males. Many Tephritidae fruit fly pests ...
    • On how to identify a seminal fluid protein : a response to Wigby et al. 

      Hurtado, Juan; Almeida, Francisca Cunha; Belliard, Silvina Ahnahi; Revale, Santiago; Hasson, Esteban (Wiley, 2022-08)
      The choice of criteria to delimit a group or class is a subjective matter, even though the reasoning, the objectives, and the criteria themselves should always be clearly stated. This paper is part of a discussion about ...
    • Plant chemicals and the sexual behavior of male tephritid fruit flies 

      Segura, Diego Fernando; Belliard, Silvina Ahnahi; Vera, María Teresa; Bachmann, Guillermo Enrique; Ruiz, María Josefina; Jofre-Barud, Flavia; Fernandez, Patricia Carina; Lopez, M. Liza; Shelly, Todd E. (Oxford University Press, 2018-09)
      Plant compounds affect insects in many different ways. In addition to being a food source, plants also contain secondary metabolites that may have positive and negative impacts on insects. The influence of these compounds ...
    • Research gaps and new insights in the evolution of Drosophila seminal fluid proteins 

      Hurtado, Juan; Almeida, Francisca Cunha; Belliard, Silvina Ahnahi; Revale, Santiago; Hasson, Esteban (Wiley, 2021-11)
      While the striking effects of seminal fluid proteins (SFPs) on females are fairly conserved among Diptera, most SFPs lack detectable homologues among the SFP repertoires of phylogenetically distant species. How such a ...
    • Timing of exposure and nutritional status affect male response to guava volatiles, a known courtship enhancer of Anastrepha fraterculus 

      Belliard, Silvina Ahnahi; Fernandez, Patricia Carina; Vera, María Teresa; Segura, Diego Fernando (Springer, 2021-06)
      Finding ways to improve the sexual competitiveness of laboratory reared males have proven beneficial for the sterile insect technique. Exposure to essential oils enhances male mating success in several species of Tephritidae ...
