Abstract

Adults of some species of whiteflies (Aleyrodidae) were studied electrophoretically in Israel and in Colombia. The patterns of Esterase and α‐Glycerophosphate dehydrogenase isozymes are species‐specific and may be used to identify whitefly adults, which are often difficult or impossible to identify morphologically. Verwendung der Elektrophorese zur Bestimmung adulter Weißer Fliegen (Hom., Aleyrodidae) in Israel und Kolumbien Die Adulten einiger Aleurodiden‐Arten wurden in Israel und Kolumbien elektrophoretisch untersucht. Die Muster der Esterase‐ und α‐Glycerophosphat‐dehydrogenase‐Isozyme erwiesen sich als artspezifisch und können somit verwendet werden, um Weiße Fliegen im Adultenstadium zu determinieren, deren morphologische Bestimmung oft schwierig oder gar unmöglich ist. 1989 Blackwell Verlag GmbH
