Feeding behavior in relation to spittlebug transmission of Xylella fastidiosa

Authors: Daniele Cornara; Monica Marra; Marina Morente; Elisa Garzo; Aranzazu Moreno; Maria Saponari; Alberto Fereres. Published: 13 May 2020 Abstract: Here, we provide the first insights into the transmission dynamics of the bacterium Xylella fastidiosa by the meadow spittlebug Philaenus spumarius, gathered through DC EPG (electrical penetration graph)-assisted transmission tests and comparative observations of the […]
