Learning outcomes

The aim of the course is to provide knowledge on the biology of the main arthropods harmful to grapevine, their interactions with the plant and the control methods. Particular attention will be given to biotechnologies applied to pest management and to biological and integrated control.
At the end of the course, the student will have to demonstrate the ability to know and recognize the grapevine biotic diseases and develop a rational and environmentally friendly tools to control the harmful arthropods.

Program

Arthropods characteristics and classification . Morphology, physiology and ethology of insects and mites harmful to grapevine. Nervous, digestive, respiratory, circulatory, reproductive, excretory and endocrine systems. Reproduction and cycle development. Population dynamic: biotic potential and environmental resistance. relationship between insects and other organisms: viruses and phytoplasmas transmission.
Insect: Classification, biology, damage and control of the main grapevine pests (e.g. moths, phylloxera, leafhoppers, scales and thrips). Grape’s minor pests.
Mites and Nematodes: Grape mites and nematodes, biology, ecology and damages.
Pest management: Damage threshold. Chemical control and insects management. Insecticides: general information, mode of action, selectivity and phytotoxicity. Pest resistance management and man-made pests. Biological and integrated pest control. Cultural and mechanical control. Biotechnologies in pest management: pheromones definition and application, mass trapping, RNAi, sterile male technique.

The knowledge will be developed with lectures, laboratory activities and personal study on the texts and on the material presented in class that will be available in the Library and/or uploaded to e-learning platform. Moreover, throughout the academic year, the individual reception service will be available (by specific appointment). Attending students will receive in the first lesson the complete timetables of teaching activities with the dates and topics discussed in the lessons

Examination Methods

The exam will be made in oral form for both attending students and non-attending students. The exam will assess the degree of knowledge on the topics presented during the lectures. The knowledge and the ability to connect knowledge in a systemic and critical way will also be evaluated. The final evaluation is expressed in thirtieths. To determine the overall grade of the exam, the weighted average of the votes obtained in the two modules will be calculated.
