Note: Biotype status ofBemisia tabaci from various crops in Cyprus Academic Article uri icon


  • An extensive survey of Bemisia tabaci populations covering the southern half of the island of Cyprus was conducted in 2006 and 2007 in order to define the biotype status of the pest. Sampling was done both on protected and outdoor cultivations of vegetables and ornamental plants. Biotype identification was performed using molecular diagnostics based on the mitochondrial cytochrome oxydase I gene. Our results indicated the presence of only the biotype B in all 25 collections.
