  • Milholm, Matthew; Park, Yoonseong (2017-12-7)
    We found that a transgenic line of Tribolium castaneum, previously characterized for the expression of green fluorescent protein (GFP) in the oenocyte (OE strain), shows unusual genetics based on the GFP expression patterns. ...
  • McDowell, Connie; Scully, Erin (2017-12-7)
    I studied the greenbug aphid (Shizaphis graminum), which has been recognized as a pest of grain crops and grasses for over 150 years and was first reported in North America in 1882 (University of Florida, Featured Creatures). ...
  • Maiden, Amy; Marshall, Jeremy L. (2017-12-7)
    Many people believe that the only method of cooling down their horse is to walk them, and sometimes for long amounts of time depending on the work and length of work the horse was used for. Brushing a horse’s coat mimics ...
  • Cornwell, Kinzley; Marshall, Jeremy (2018-12-14)
    We studied the link between genetic and environmental factors affecting the behaviors of Red Flour Beetles. The research conducted was important because Red Flour Beetles are considered a damaging pest to the agricultural ...
  • Henery, Caroline; Marshall, Jeremy (2018-12-14)
    In this research project I studied how the Red Flour Beetle grouped over a 10 day time period with two different strains of the Beetle. One strain was the Canadian Red Flour Beetle and the other was the Manhattan, KS Red ...
  • Arnold, Shara; Huston, Miranda; Gordon, Haley; Marshall, Jeremy (2018-12-14)
    Living in a group can potentially put stress on an animal. This is particularly true for species like Hippodamia convergens, the convergent lady beetle, the larvae of which will cannibalize each other when food sources are ...
  • Hall, Brandon; Marshall, Jeremy
    Competition for space, resources, and mates plays an important role in the survivorship of many organisms (Sbilordo et al. 2011). Understanding how competition affects a population is a crucial component in ensuring the ...
  • Fergurson, Anna; Maldonado-Ruiz, Paulina; Zurek, Ludek (2017-12-7)
    Ticks are obligate blood feeding ectoparasites and vectors of several animal and human pathogens (Williams-Newkirk et al., 2014). Ticks not only carry pathogens but also a bacterial community with commensal and symbiotic ...
  • Priest, Aleece; Choo, Hannah; Ruberson, John R. (2018-12-14)
    Biodiversity is an important indicator of environmental health. Insects are very interconnected ecologically, very adaptable, and highly diverse, making them excellent indicators for environmental health. Human interference ...

  • Ast, Savannah; Ewing, Robert; Whitworth, Jeff (2017-12-7)
    The brown recluse spider (BRS), Loxosceles reclusa (Gertsch & Mulaik) is a serious pest and not easily eradicated by chemical means (Sandidge & Hopwood, 2005). Common folklore has long indicated that Maclura pomifera (hedge ...
  • Hamblin, Matt; Phillips, Thomas W.
    Red flour beetles are a serious pest to stored grain crops (United States 2015). Many different studies have been and are currently being done to find new anti-feedant deterrents to keep these beetles from infesting or ...
  • Lester, Alec; Rains, Larry; Dille, J. Anita (2018-12-14)
    Horseweed has documented resistance to EPSPS inhibitors, PSII inhibitors, ALS inhibitors, and PSI inhibitor (Heap, 2018). Glyphosate resistant horseweed moves the herbicide into a vacuole preventing the herbicide from ...
  • Adams, Porter; McCoy, Christie; Thomson, Jessica L.; Nayduch, Dana (2018-12-14)
    This study was conducted to determine if there is a difference in bacterial abundance in house flies based on sex and rearing environment (manure versus artificial media) for house flies. This is important in determining ...
  • Grosdidier, Raymond; Wood, Spencer; Marshall, Jeremy (2018-12-14)
    There has been a recent push to encourage westerners to introduce insects into their diets. Traditional arguments that stress environmental and nutritional benefits have been largely unsuccessful. This not ...
  • Saunders, Jazmine; Marshall, Jeremy
    Sex ratios can influence the population biology of organisms (Wade, M.j. 1984 and Lee, Smith 1978). Sex ratios can also influence the sexual and reproductive fitness of males and females (Michalczyk, ?ukasz 2011). I wanted ...
  • Morton, Danielle; Rozo, Paula; Londono-Renteria, Berlin (2017-12-7)
    Dengue is one of the most geographically significant mosquito transmitted diseases caused by dengue virus (DENV). In endemic areas of tropics and subtropics, this disease has become the leading cause of morbidity and ...
  • Luckert, Meagan; Rozo, Paula; Londono, Berlin (2017-12-7)
    Malaria is a life-threatening disease caused by parasites that are transmitted to people through the bites of infected female Anopheles mosquitoes. There are more than 400 different species of Anopheles mosquitoes; however ...
  • McCorkendale, Kole; Bhattarai, Ganesh P.; McCornack, Brian (2017-12-7)
    The objective of this experiment was to test if an aerial survey system could be more effective and efficient than a ground survey performed by a human. We did this by detecting markers set in a field. Effectiveness is ...
  • Beals, Brendan; Haman, Colter; Park, Yoonseong (2017-12-7)
    Although some ticks are known to stick to a host for the entirety of their life, some are known to drop off of their host after feeding to take time to molt. Of those who drop off of their host, some have been observed to ...
