The Potential Distribution of the Potato Tuber Moth (Phthorimaea Operculella) Based on Climate and Host Availability of Potato. Agronomy, 10(1), 12. doi:10.3390/agronomy10010012 https://doi.org/10.3390/agronomy10010012

This study evaluated the potential distribution of the potato tuber moth. This species severely impacts global potato production, especially in China and India, which have the world’s largest potato production. We developed two indices considering host plant availability and production in addition t…

Jiang, D., Chen, S., Hao, M., Fu, J., & Ding, F. (2018). Mapping the Potential Global Codling Moth (Cydia pomonella L.) Distribution Based on a Machine Learning Method. Scientific Reports, 8(1). doi:10.1038/s41598-018-31478-3 https://doi.org/10.1038/s41598-018-31478-3

The spread of invasive species may pose great threats to the economy and ecology of a region. The codling moth (Cydia pomonella L.) is one of the 100 worst invasive alien species in the world and is the most destructive apple pest. The economic losses caused by codling moths are immeasurable. It is …
