We are pleased to announce that, thanks to the financial support of our valuable
users, we are able once again, to import articles from the radio frequency range into
the EMF-Portal. Fortunately, we could close the gap in our literature inventory and
all newly published articles released up to April 30, 2018 have been included. In
order that we are able to import further publications released in the future, please
help us with your donation. Thank you very much!
To evaluate the fertility and development of Trichoplusia ni, either larvae, pupae, or adults were exposed to the magnetic field for 24 hours. After exposure, larvae or pupae were allowed to reach the adult stage to evaluate their oviposition rate. From each group (exposed as larvae, pupae or adult), 11 males and 11 females were put in a plastic container for mating. To assess immunological parameters, third-instar larvae were exposed for 72 hours (Remark EMF-Portal: In the abstract, there is also an exposure period of 48 hours given. However, no results for this are presented in the article or in figures). When larvae reached fourth-instar larvae stadium, the third segment was cut and hemolymph was collected.
