RCdE publishes original research articles, essays, scientific notes, book reviews and obituaries related to the area of insect science in English and Spanish. It also publishes review articles on general entomological topics, called "thematic reviews", however, these are only done by request of the Editorial Committee.</p> <p>The journal focuses on papers in the area of entomology and related fields such as biodiversity, ecology, agriculture, human, veterinary and forensic medicine, physiology, systematics and taxonomy, biogeography and genetics that fall within the following topics:</p> <ul> <li>Agricultural entomology.</li> <li>Ecology and behavior.</li> <li>Insect growth and development.</li> <li>Insect anatomy and insect physiology.</li> <li>Systematic entomology.</li> <li>Medical, veterinary and forensic entomology.</li> <li>Microbiology and molecular entomology<strong>.</strong></li> </ul> <p>For details see Instructions for authors.</p> <p>Submitted articles should not be previously published and are subject to double-blind peer review. The journal requires payment from authors at the time of publication. Fees vary according to the number of published pages (with a special discount fee for SOCOLEN members).</p> Sustainable control measures of IPM of the cereal leafminer Syringopais temperatella Led. (Lepidoptera: Scythrididae): Short-term effect of tillage system 2022-06-13T14:23:30-05:00 Ihab Ghabeish F.A Al-Zyoud A.M. Mamkagh R.A. Al-Nawaiseh <p><em>Syringopais temperatella</em> Led. (Lep., Scythrididae) is a serious threat of barley and wheat in Jordan as it causes a great loss in crop. There is a growing interest in the development of innovative control strategies aiming to minimize the environmental impact of pest management and improve the safety of the agro-food chain. However, little attention has been paid on the use of cultural control methods against the pest, accordingly, this study aimed at investigating the effect of tillage system in controlling <em>S</em><em>. temperatella</em> in Jordan. The study was conducted in Karak Governorate during the 2019-2020 cropping season with four tillage types; no-tillage, moldboard, disk and chisel plows. Furthermore, three soil depths (15, 30 and 45 cm) were evaluated for each plow type. Data on the infestation percentage, number of larvae, plant height, grain yield weight, straw biomass, and soil moisture were recorded. Results revealed that pest infestation and number of larvae were significantly the lowest in moldboard plow followed by disc plow and chisel plow, and then in no-tillage. In addition, the pest infestation and number of larvae decreased significantly with increasing plowing depth. Plant height, grain yield, straw biomass and soil moisture were significantly higher when the moldboard plow was used, followed by chisel plow, disc plow, and then no-tillage; likewise, they were increased significantly with increasing tillage depth up to 45 cm. In conclusion, it is suggested to use the conventional tillage at a depth closed to 45 cm instead of no-tillage especially when a moldboard plow used.</p> 2023-01-03T00:00:00-05:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Ihab Ghabeish, F.A Al-Zyoud, A.M.
