How many genetic options for evolving insecticide resistance in heliothine and spodopteran pests?

Oakeshott , John; Farnsworth, Claire; East, Peter; Scott, Colin; Han, Yangchun; Wu, Yidong; Russell, Robyn J


The widely accepted paradigm for the development of insecticide resistance in field populations of insects is of selection for one or a very few genes of major effect. Limited genetic mapping data for organophosphate and pyrethroid resistance in heliothine and spodopteran pests generally agrees with this paradigm. However, other biochemical and transcriptomic data suggest a more complex set of changes in multiple P450 and esterase gene/enzyme systems in resistant strains of these species. We...[Show more]
