Eggs hatch in 10 days at this temperature. Accessed on 03/06/2007. 2007. Kissinger (1966) considered the Florida weevils to be C. singularis, but this was before C. salviniae was recognized as a separate species. Surveys for natural enemies were conducted in Trinidad, Venezuela, Guyana, Uruguay, Paraguay, Brazil, and Argentina during 1978 to 1981. State to get tough to protect Caddo, other waterways. Journal of Applied Entomology 106:     518-526. It has never been observed attacking plants other than Salvinia species in the field in South America, including those that grew in association with S. molesta such as water fern (Azolla sp.

Named the “Salvinia auriculata complex”, the members include S. auriculata Aublet, S. biloba Raddi, S. herzogii de la Sota, and S. molesta. It is a measure of the variety of different versions of the same gene within individual species. When S. molesta was found in the United States and biological control was considered, further morphological examination of weevils from Florida suggested that they were C. salviniae (C. O’Brien, pers. Southwestern Entomologist. 1989. Indonesia girds to battle Salvinia molesta. Journal of the American Mosquito Control Association 6: 121-126. Lund University, Lund, Sweden. In: Van Driesche, R., et al., 2002, Biological Control of Invasive Plants in the Eastern United States, USDA Forest Service Publication FHTET-2002-04, 413 p. Salvinia molesta D. S. Mitchell is a floating fern native to South America that in the last half of the twentieth century spread widely throughout the tropics and subtropics, moved in part by the trade in ornamental plants for fish tanks and ponds. Total costs associated with salvinia were estimated to be between 24.7 million and 56.7 million rupees (in Australian dollars, between 0.9 and 2.1 million) for 1987. Optimum temperature for development for all stages is 28 to 30ºC. Sri Lanka has felt the impact of invasive alien animals and plants affecting agriculture over several decades.The introduction of water hyacinth (1905), Salvinia (1939) and Parthenium (1999) are some invasive alien plants that have affected our water bodies and land. Nelson, M.J. Grodowitz, R.M. Salvinia auriculata Aubl. Croxdale, J. G. 1978., (accessed March 26, 2002). The Kariba weed: Salvinia molesta. We also thank Dr. Peter Room and Mr. Richard Chan for permission to use their photographs. Technical Papers in Hydrology 12. Being a pentaploid species, S. molesta demonstrates irregularities during meiosis that prevent spore formation and result in functionally sterile plants (Loyal and Grewal 1966; Mitchell 1979). 1995. There are three growth forms, with a continuum among them, that are associated with the degree of crowding experienced by the plant (Mitchell and Tur, 1975). 1986. 1983. [2020]. Accessed on 02/12/2008. Salvinia also is a weed of paddy rice that reduces production by competing for water, nutrients and space (Anon., 1987). Proceedings of the Symposium on Water Quality      Management Through Biological Control, January, 1975. 1983. The Journal of Ecology 71(2):349-365. 1993. 1982. The first establishment outside of its native range was in Sri Lanka in 1939 (Room 1990), by the Botany Department at the University of Colombo. Plants maintained at 11 ppt were killed after 20 hours exposure. (accessed on 14 April 2008). Females lay approximately 300 eggs during their four-to-seven-day life span (Knopf and Habeck, 1976; Sands and Kassulke, 1984; Taylor, 1984). Bernice Pauahi Bishop Museum. McFarland, D.G., L.S.

Biological control of giant salvinia in east Texas waterways and the impact on dissolved oxygen levels. Salvinia minima Baker, the only other Salvinia species present in the United States also is exotic and can be distinguished by the presence of divided hairs on the abaxial leaf surface that are spreading and free at the tips (Fig. C. salvinae was first used as a biological control in Australia at Lake Moondarra, a recreational lake in Mount Isa, Queensland in 1980. Aquatic and wetland plants of Puerto Rico. Bulletin of Entomological Research 73: 85-95. It lacks true roots but its submerged fronds function as roots. On Lake Kariba during the period when salvinia was a problem the maximum grasshopper density recorded was 27 per square meter (Marshall and Junor, 1981), suggesting that the insect might not have been a primary cause of decline in the weed. Thomas, P.A. Salvinia is a perennial plant with no seasonal periodicity, although changes in growth may be related to seasonal variations such as changes in temperature. Cape Town, South Africa. Test plants were exposed to mature weevils in three replicates in choice tests. Viner. Weedwatcher 2: 1-2. Tropical Agriculture 33: 145-157. Mats of salvinia can grow in water bodies with conductivities ranging from 100 µS/cm to 1,400 µS/cm (Mitchell et al., 1980; Room and Gill, 1985). (In October 2000, it was discovered in a number of sites in southeastern North Carolina.) Williams, R.

The floating fern Salvinia molesta from Brazil escaped from a garden in Sri Lanka and became a serious aquatic pest in much of the Old World wet tropics. The species continued to be introduced to other warm regions of the world intentionally as an aquarium and water garden plant, and unintentionally as a contaminant in shipments of other aquatic plants (Oliver 1993; Nelson 1984). 1990. However, the decline of the weed at this location has been attributed to other factors such as nutrient stress on the weed (Mitchell and Rose, 1979; Marshall and Junor, 1981). Falling-apart as a lifestyle – the rhizome architecture and population growth of      Salvinia molesta. Pupation occurs within a silken cocoon. Complete compensation occurs only when high levels of nitrogen are available (Julien and Bourne, 1986; Julien et al., 1987). It provides habitats for vectors of human disease with serious socioeconomic impacts. Finlayson, C. M., T. P. Farrell, and D. J. Griffiths. It was later collected from S. molesta in Brazil and released in Australia during 1981, where it established widely but failed to provide control (Room et al., 1984; Forno, 1987). (ed.). Pfingsten, C.C. † Populations may not be currently present. Under favorable natural conditions, biomass can double in about one week to 10 days (Mitchell and Tur 1975; Mitchell 1979). 1972. Adults failed to feed on I. batatas in no-choice tests in a non-aquatic situation and died within seven days. Sri Lanka-China relations started as soon as the People's Republic of China was formed in 1949. Scattered infestations are also often found in the Northern Territory and Western Australia, and less often in Victoria and South Australia.

Paddy rice losses, fishing losses, other losses (power generation, transport, washing and bathing, etc. The first population established outside the native range was in Sri Lanka in 1939 where it was introduced via the Botanical Department of the University of Colombo (Oliver, 1993). We highly recommend reviewing metadata files prior to interpreting these data. Salvinia can clog water intakes and interfere with agricultural irrigation, water supply, and electrical generation. Ecology of Water Weeds in the Neotropics. Biomass weights of live plants approach those recorded for floating waterhyacinth (Eichhornia crassipes (Mart.) Later a vertical leaf position is attained as mature plants press into tight chains to form mats of innumerable floating plants (Mitchell and Thomas 1972; Mitchell and Tur 1975). Four of these species have been used as biological control agents against S. molesta. Salvinia Salvinia molesta. Mitchell, pp. However, it now occurs in at least 17 other countries, including Australia, Papua New Guinea, Sri Lanka, South Africa, and the United States (Winston et al. Herbarium (UNA). Also recently recorded on Norfolk Island. 9) may feed from within a refugium (made of silk and plant hair) attached to the external leaf surface or, for waterlettuce, within galleries in the leaves. Darwiniana 12:      465-520. de la Sota, E. R. 1963. Contribución al conocimiento de las Salviniaceae neotropicales. 2013. Salvinia molesta is native to southeastern Brazil. 1986. The proportion of axillary buds that develop is correlated with the nitrogen content of the plant (Room, 1983; Julien and Bourne, 1986), and the nitrogen content increases following removal of buds by insects or other agents (Room and Thomas, 1985; Julien and Bourne, 1986; Forno and Semple, 1987). Goolsby, J. Cilliers, C. J. 1973. Intrinsic rates of increase are highest in autumn and decline in summer and winter (Room et al., 1984; Taylor, 1988). In its native range in southeastern Brazil, salvinia is a component of floating and emergent plant communities. Salvinia is readily available for purchase in the United States, particularly through the Internet. Economic damage. Population increase is by growth and fragmentation.

The fourth, Cyrtobagous salviniae Calder and Sands, was found during later work (Sands, 1983) and has been extremely successful. Journal of Applied Ecology 22: 139-156. In the field at Lake Kariba, where the mean annual temperature was 24 to 28ºC, it was estimated that P. acuminata could complete three generations per year (Thomas, 1980). Dallas, TX. (accessed 29 April 2009). Feeding results in bud destruction, but not rhizome disintegration, and plants retain their capacity for regrowth (Sands and Schotz, 1985). 1984. Through high growth rates and slow decomposition rates, salvinia reduces the concentration of nutrients that would otherwise be available to primary producers and organisms that depend on them (Sharma and Goel, 1986; Storrs and Julien, 1996).
