New PDF release: Acarid Phylogeny and Evolution: Adaptation in Mites and

The phrases said through Serge Kreiter throughout the assembly spring to mind. they can checklist precisely the state of affairs of Acarology in Europe and on this planet: "I imagine that during many ecu nations there are only a few complete time acarologists. it's very infrequent to have new positions on hand . . . . And public cash, from the eu neighborhood but in addition from nationwide international locations, is especially tough to get in case you are looking to paintings on mites . . . . may well acarological institutions in Europe (Eur. A. Ac. and S. I. A. L. F) interact or, higher, get married?" So, the fourth symposium of the ecu Acarologists has not just been the celebration to have an concept on which path the learn is addressed at the present time, but in addition it mentioned the problems of our "scientific hranch". at the foundation of the shows and invited papers we had evidences of a "new" Acarology in line with smooth thoughts and techniques of investigations but additionally the significance, frequently sheltered no matter if of appropriate price, of the "old" Acarology made at the alpha taxonomy and uncomplicated stories. So, a "new" Acarology wishes the "old" one. during this context, the desire to place jointly the eu acarologists has been arising. This truth, of political that means, can without doubt enhance the acarological move and the dialogue in this aspect confirmed essentially the significance of a number of different actions and efforts during this path. we are hoping that the assembly in Siena will signify a significative stone for the growth of Acarology.

Each spl'cil's is very restricted in its host range, usually colonizing only one species of plant. Clearly, such relationships, over extended periods of time, are an opportunity for evolutionary interactions to occur. One genus of eriophyid mites that has received morl' attl'ntion than most is Cecidopbyopsis. One species, C. rihis, the black currant gall mite, is the most damaging pest of black currant plants. Many of the other Cecidopbyopsis mites colonize commonly occurring plants. It has therefore been possible to use this group to investigate the evolutionary relationships between them and their host plants.

17 There are quite a number of scientists working on mites which are important from an agricultural point of view. Their aim is to get information on different species, both noxious and useful to crops, from different points of view, to deepen our knowledge on their biodiversity, their biology and behaviour, on the control of phytophagous species using biological methods and on the morphology and ultrastructure of species of some groups. A team of scientists in Padova University works in this field.
