Papers from today’s talk

Thanks to everyone who came to today’s CIDD grad student talks on gypsy moths, MRSA and malaria (oh my!). I mentioned a couple of papers during the Q&A, so if you’re interested in learning a little more about fungal biocontrol, here are the references:

  • Spore aeroallergenicity: Darbro JM, Thomas MB (2009) Spore persistence and likelihood of aeroallergenicity of entomopathogenic fungi used for mosquito control. Am J Trop Med Hyg 80:992–7.
  •  Spore persistence in field situations: Blanford S et al. (2012) Storage and persistence of a candidate fungal biopesticide for use against adult malaria vectors. Malar J 11:354–367.
  •  As a bonus, here’s a paper that describes the difficulties of bringing Green Muscle, a locust fungal biopesticide, to market: Thomas MB, Kooyman C (2004) Locust biopesticides: a tale of two continents. Biocontrol News Inf 25:47N–51N.
