- Field test of a lemon eucalyptus repellent against Leptoconops biting midgesScott P Carroll
Department of Entomology, University of California Davis, 95616, USA
J Am Mosq Control Assoc 22:483-5. 2006..Half of the eucalyptus subjects received no bites, and the true median protection time probably exceeded the test duration...
- Genetic architecture of adaptive differentiation in evolving host races of the soapberry bug, Jadera haematolomaS P Carroll
Department of Entomology, University of California, Davis 95616, USA
Genetica 112:257-72. 2001..Selection has produced both additive and nonadditive differentiation between the host races with surprising speed, consistent with theoretical predictions about evolution in fitness-associated traits...
- Rapid appearance of epistasis during adaptive divergence following colonizationScott P Carroll
Department of Entomology and Centre for Population Biology, University of California Davis, Davis, CA 95616, USA
Proc Biol Sci 270:S80-3. 2003..Because ultimate division of populations into genetic species depends on epistatic loss of hybrid compatibility, local adaptation based on E may accelerate macro-evolutionary diversification...
- Brave New World: the epistatic foundations of natives adapting to invadersScott P Carroll

- Facing change: forms and foundations of contemporary adaptation to biotic invasionsScott P Carroll
Department of Entomology and Center for Population Biology, University of California, Davis, Davis, CA 95616, USA
Mol Ecol 17:361-72. 2008..Conservation scientists may manipulate adaptation to achieve conservation goals, but must also decide how deeply they wish to attempt to control the phenotypes and genotypes of other species...
- Prolonged efficacy of IR3535 repellents against mosquitoes and blacklegged ticks in North AmericaScott P Carroll
Carroll Loye Biological Research, Davis, CA 95616, USA
J Med Entomol 45:706-14. 2008..1 to 12.2 h for blacklegged ticks. Long protection duration resulted in many cases being truncated by darkness or eventual subject withdrawal, which suggests that actual protection times were probably greater...
- Evolutionary responses of natives to introduced species: what do introductions tell us about natural communities?Sharon Y Strauss
Center for Population Biology, University of California, Davis, CA 95616, USA

- Influence of genetic architecture on contemporary local evolution in the soapberry bug, Jadera haematoloma: artificial selection on beak lengthH Dingle
Department of Entomology and Center for Population Biology, University of California Davis, Davis, CA 95616, USA
J Evol Biol 22:2031-40. 2009..Reversible or forward evolution thus may occur in a broad set of genetically correlated multivariate traits undergoing rapid contemporary adaptation to altered local environments...
- PMD, a registered botanical mosquito repellent with deet-like efficacyScott P Carroll
Department of Entomology, University of California Davis, and Carroll Loye Biological Research, 95616, USA
J Am Mosq Control Assoc 22:507-14. 2006..We conclude that not only is the CDC endorsement warranted but also that it probably underestimates the value of PMD as a deet alternative for public health applications...
