Fruit flies are a major issue facing horticultural producers, and as global warming and species migration become more prevalent issues there is an urgent need for easy identification of these pests. A companion volume to the recently published “Tropical Fruit Flies of South-East Asia (Tephritidae: Dacinae)”, this book provides fully-illustrated keys for the identification of all currently-known Dacinae fruit flies. Focusing on south-east Asian fauna, it covers areas including India, Bhutan, Nepal, Sri Lanka, Myanmar, China, Taiwan, Japan, the Philippines, Palau, Vietnam, Thailand, Singapore, Malaysia and Indonesia. This major new reference work is produced by experts with over 80 years' combined research experience, and through simple identification information can help prevent these major pest species being introduced to new geographical areas. Of particular value to agriculture and quarantine officers responsible for the detection of new incursions, where early detection is both economical and essential to guarantee eradication, this book is also a valuable resource for researchers and students of agriculture and entomology.

As global warming and species migration become more prevalent issues, there is an urgent need for a text that provides comprehensive taxonomic details and geographic distributions of Dacinae fruit flies within south-east Asia. In particular, some of the major pest species of this region are being introduced on a regular basis to new geographical areas, causing widespread food security issues and economic hardship. Quarantine and horticultural organizations require detailed information on these fruit fly species in order to detect and eradicate any new incursions. This major new reference work details the taxonomic research into the subfamily Dacinae, which contains the tropical fruit flies of south-east Asia, as well as many other regions of the world. While focusing on south-east Asian fauna, all known species are included, through a study of the type material available in museums around the world. Specimens collected in major surveys conducted across Asia from 1983 to present have also been used to ensure a complete, in-depth review of this subfamily. Providing complete descriptions and artwork of all species of Dacinae recorded from the south-east Asian region for the first time, this book is written and illustrated by experts with over 80 years' combined research experience. Areas covered include: India, Bhutan, Nepal, Sri Lanka, Myanmar, China, Taiwan, Japan, the Philippines, Palau, Vietnam, Thailand, Singapore, Malaysia and Indonesia. It is an essential reference for departments of agriculture, researchers and students of entomology and quarantine, horticultural and chemical industry personnel worldwide. Key features: - 120 recently discovered species - 500 detailed drawings - Revision of all known species - Updated geographical distributions and host records - Accurate list and detailed information of all known pest species This book will be followed by Keys to Fruit Flies of South-East Asia.

Horticultural sector presents many opportunities for economic development and improving livelihood of growers but several factors constrain production and limit the potential for trade of fruits and vegetables. Tephritid fruit flies constitute a major constraint. They cause enormous losses through direct feeding damage and loss of market opportunities through imposition of quarantine restrictions by importing countries to prevent entry and their establishment. In Africa, several native (Ceratitis and Dacus spp) and exotic (Bactrocera and Zeugodacus spp.) species inflict considerable losses to horticulture causing losses ranging from 30-90%. Over the past 10 years of R&D, extensive information has been generated on bioecology and management of several native and exotic fruit flies in Africa. While several specific reviews have addressed various aspects of the biology, ecology and management of economically important tephritid fruit flies; coverage of African native species has been limited largely to Bactrocera oleae and Ceratitis capitata – which are not economically important species in many Africa countries. Indeed, no book exist that have explicitly addressed economically important African fruit flies and none of the various reviews, have specifically focused on the status of the bioecology, economic impact and management of exotic and native fruit flies – including several potentially invasive Dacus species attacking vegetables - in Africa. This book consolidates this status of knowledge and socio-economic impact of various intervention techniques that are currently being applied across Africa. The timing of the book is especially pertinent due to the changing fruit fly landscape in Africa – caused by arrivals of the highly destructive alien invasives (Bactrocera dorsalis, B. zonata, and B. latifrons) - and the priorities African countries have placed recently on export of fruits and vegetables to international markets. This is an important reference material for researchers, academics and students that are keen at improving horticulture and enhancing food and nutrition security in Africa and beyond.

Excerpt from Dipterologische Studien: Dolichopodidae der Indo-Australischen Region Ich habe die australische Region und die des Stillei'i Ozeans nicht von der indischen getrennt, fasse vielmehr alles unter dem Begriff: orientalisch zusammen. Ob das Bedürfnis einer Tren nung später bei vollkommenerer Bekanntschaft mit der Dipterenfauna dieses großen Gebietes'sich als nützlich oder notwendig ergeben wird, vermag ich zur Zeit nicht zu entscheiden; heute, bei der verhältnismäßig noeh unentwickelten Kenntnis der dort lebenden Gattungen und Arten würde eine getrennte Aufzählung keinen großen Wert beanspruchen können. Ich gebe weiter unten eine Übersicht der bis jetzt bekannten Gattungen und Arten. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.

Bachelorarbeit aus dem Jahr 2007 im Fachbereich Technik, Note: 1.0, Campus02 Fachhochschule der Wirtschaft Graz, 19 Quellen im Literaturverzeichnis, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Durch die fortschreitende Miniaturisierung technischer Produkte stossen immer mehr konventionelle Fertigungsverfahren an ihre Grenzen. Diese Arbeit beschreibt die Moglichkeiten der Lasertechnik in der Fertigung von Leiterplatten, um konventionelle Fertigungsverfahren zu erganzen bzw. zu ersetzen. In der Arbeit wird zuerst generell die Materialbearbeitung mittels Laser dargestellt. Als nachster Punkt wird die Herstellung von Mikrolochern unter Verwendung von verschiedenen Laserarten und Herstellprozessen beschrieben. Danach werden sowohl Methoden zur Erstellung des Leiterbildes, wie das Laserdirektbelichten und Laserdirektstrukturieren, als auch das Strukturieren von Lotstoppmasken mittels Lasertechnik erklart. Im letzten Teil wird auf das Laserschneiden von flexiblen und starr-flexiblen Leiterplatten eingegangen. Diese Arbeit soll weiters den Umstand verdeutlichen, dass eine fortschreitende Miniaturisierung in der Herstellung von technologisch hochwertigen Leiterplatten den Einsatz von Lasertechnik verlangt, da nur mit Hilfe von Lasertechnik die dafur notwendigen, feinsten Strukturen hergestellt werden konnen. Abstract The miniaturization of technical products has led to an increasing number of conventional manufacturing processes of printed circuit boards being taken to their limits. This paper will describe some possibilities of the use of a laser in the manufacturing of printed circuit boards, in order to supplement and replace conventional manufacturing processes. First, the processing of materials by means of laser-light will be dealt with. Secondly, the manufacturing of micro-vias by means of different types of lasers and processes will be discussed, after which both methods of imaging (such as laser-direct-imaging and laserdirect- pattern) and solder-resist-structuring by means of la

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2003 im Fachbereich Germanistik - Neuere Deutsche Literatur, Note: 1,0, , Veranstaltung: Deutsch Mittelstufe, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Nirgendwo in Afrika ist der autobiografische Roman von Stefanie Zweig und handelt von der jüdischen Familie Redlich (dem Vater Walter, seiner Frau Jettel und der Tochter Regina) die 1938 aus dem Nazi-Deutschland flieht, um dem sicheren Tode zu entkommen. Mitten in der Wildnis versuchen sie auf einer Farm in Rongai/Kenia eine neue Lebensgrundlage aufzubauen. Stefanie Zweig, wurde 1932 in Leobschütz/Breslau/Oberschlesien geboren, ihre Eltern waren jüdisch, der Vater Rechtsanwalt, der nach der Machtergreifung Hitlers sein Amt verlor. Stefanie Zweig machte bewusst Walter, der ihren Vater verkörpert, zum Protagonisten der Geschichte und eröffnet dadurch eine vielschichtige Perspektive. Caroline Link brachte in den Film ihren persönlichen Ansatz mit ein.Sie reizte die Liebesgeschichte zwischen Walter und Jettel. Denn mitten im „Nirgendwo“ wird ihnen ein neuer Blick auf den Partner gewährt. Die Figur Süßkind wurde im Film übertrieben dargestellt: Er hat mit Jettel eine Affäre. Sicherlich hat er hier diese zentrale Rolle, um die Dramatik zu verstärken.
