The appearance near El Centro, California, in February of symptoms of susceptibility in a lucerne clone that had been unaffected by Therioaphis maculata (Buckt.) in the three preceding years indicated the development of a biotype of the aphid that could reproduce on this and perhaps other resistant clones; the ability of T. maculata to develop biotypes had already been Cited by:   An alarm pheromone, C15H24, was isolated from the spotted alfalfa aphid,Therioaphis maculata. The IR, PMR, and [13C]NMR data showed that this alarm pheromone is germacrene A (structure IIIa). The negative plain curve in the ORD of the alarm pheromone implies that the pheromone is (−)-germacrene A (structure IIIb).Cited by:
