  A survey of mealybugs occurring in tea gardens of north of Iran was conducted during 2003-2005 seasons. Obscure mealybug, Pseudococcus viburni (affinis) (Signoret) was recorded as dominant species from tea gardens of Mazandaran and Guilan provinces of north of Iran. This species is collected from all of tea gardens, where it was found infesting tea plants (Camellia sinensis var. sinensis) and some other host plants. Description of adult female and different instars of tea mealybug is given. In tea gardens of north of Iran, tea mealybug density increased rapidly to an early peak in April, followed by a decline and then a low, but steady density for remainder of the season until there was another decline in November. Across the tea gardens monitored, four generations per year are indicated by peaks in crawler density.

  A CASE OF PLAGIARISM (Case No. 28082012)

Professor Yaacov Katan and Professor Benjamin Raccah the editors of Phytoparasitica pointed out a plagiarism in a paper published in Pakistan Journal of Biological Sciences Volume 10 Number 18, 3220-3223, 2007.

On the receipt of Professor Yaacov Katan and Professor Benjamin Raccah’s letter, the case forwarded to the Ethics Committee of the Science Alert. As per the report of the Ethics Committee, article entitled "Developmental Time and Fecundity of White Peach Scale, Pseudaulacaspis pentagona (Targioni-Tozzetti) (Homoptera: Diaspididae), on Potato, Kiwi and Mulberry Hosts in Iran" authored by Habib Abbasipour from Department of Plant Protection, Faculty of Agricultural Sciences, Shahed University, Tehran, Iran published in Pakistan Journal of Biological Sciences Volume 10 Number 18, 3220-3223, 2007, contains substantial sections of text that have been taken verbatim from earlier publication without clear and unambiguous attribution.

Science Alert considers misappropriation of intellectual property and duplication of text from other authors or publications without clear and unambiguous attribution totally unacceptable.

Plagiarism is a violation of copyright and a serious breach of scientific ethics. The Editors and Publisher have agreed to officially retract this article.

Science Alert is highly thankful to Professor Yaacov Katan and Professor Benjamin Raccah the editors of Phytoparasitica, for pointing out this plagiarism.

  In this research, the efficacy of plant extract from Datura stramonium L. (Solanaceae) was tested against the red flour beetle, Tribolium castaneum (Herbst) (Coleoptera: Tenebrionidae), for its toxic and antifeedant activity. The dried and powdered plant was extracted with 150 mL of absolute ethanol (99%, Merck) using a rotary evaporator extractor at 45 °C. Experiments were designed to measure the nutritional indices, such as relative growth rate (RGR), relative consumption rate (RCR), efficiency of conversion of ingested food (ECI), and feeding deterrence index (FDI). Treatments were evaluated by flour disk bioassay in the dark at 27 ± 1 °C and 60 ± 5% RH. Aliquots of 10 μL of acetone (control) or acetone extract (947-3007 mg L-1) were spread evenly on the flour disks. The solvent was allowed to evaporate, and then 10 adult insects were introduced into each treatment. After 72 h, nutritional indices were calculated. On the basis of the designed experiments, the calculated lethal concentrations of LC50 and LC90 of D. stramonium were 3936 and 15373 mg L-1, respectively. Results indicated that nutritional indices varied significantly as plant extract concentrations increased. As the concentration of D. stramonium increased, RGR, RCR, and ECI indices were reduced, and the most significant effect was observed at 3007 mg L-1. On the other hand, the FDI index increased with increasing extract doses and, as a result, insect food consumption was reduced. The results of data analysis showed that there is a significant difference between the plant and different concentrations in the feeding deterrence index of T. castaneum.
