My research aims to evaluate the impact of agricultural crops on detoxification mechanisms of pests to xenobiotics. In many cases, secondary plant compounds have the same mechanism of action as insecticides. Interestingly, insects have similar detoxification pathways for both xenobiotics. Thus, the host plant can alter the insecticide's susceptibility. My goal is to integrate molecular biology and phenological assays to better understand insecticide resistance and to promote the durability of pest management tactics.

Hi Roger, FAW is a problem in Brazil for a while now. Thus, we have a solid amount of research on its biological, behavior, resistance management, population genetics, and other topics. As Africa and Asia, Brazil is a vast country with different ecoregions, and it's in this context this specific work can help. FAW studies in Brazil can work as a model to be considered when studying and debating FAW management strategies in Africa and Asia. In this paper, we show that we need to think of FAW resistance management in terms of the ecoregion and population dynamics, not the country. For example, a specific region of Brazil was more similar to another region from Paraguay, then from Brazil itself. Another topic of the discussion that we recommend to included when debating FAW management in Africa and Asia, is the importance of recognizing migration routes and selection pressure hostspots. The constant presence of resistance alleles coming from hotspots makes resistance evolution much more likely even when changing the insecticide.
