Project I-ResPect – Insecticide resistance, population and effect on biodiversity

Basic data

Acronym:
I-ResPect
Title:
Insecticide resistance, population and effect on biodiversity
Duration:
01/06/2016 to 31/05/2018
Abstract / short description:
Apple orchards are highly treated crops, in which organophosphorus, neonicotinoid and synthetic phyrethroid compounds are the most heavily sprayed insecticides. These compounds are toxic to non-target arthropods and increase resistance making apple orchards an interesting case to study the deleterious effects of insecticides on non-target species. The three main scientific questions of this project are: 1. Does insecticide resistance affect the energetic resrves of the earwing F. auricularia? 2. What are the inter-generational effects of resistance on F. auricularia fitness traits?3. What are the mechanisms involved in insecticide resistance/tolerance?
