  1. Fitness of twospotted spider mites is more affected by constitutive than induced resistance traits in cotton (Gossypium spp.) Volume 69, Issue 10, 1187–1197, Article first published online: 17 June 2013

Following publication of the above article (DOI 10.1002/ps.3546) on Wiley Online Library on 17 June 2013 and in the present issue of Pest Management Science (69:1187-1197), the following mistake was found:

On page 1195, last paragraph of the first column, one reads: “Leaf thickness is also a morphological trait which can influence mite resistance. The leaves of the two resistant genotypes, BM13H (approx. 280 m) and Sipima 280 (approx. 270 m), were thinner than Sicot 71 (approx. 330 m) grown in the field (Miyazaki J, unpublished). However, the lower epidermis, which is the distance between the underside of the leaf surface and the spongy mesophyll cell layer, was approximately 17.5 m on all three genotypes. Thus, these three genotypes had the same distance for mites to feed on the contents of spongy mesophyll cells.”

This should read: “Leaf thickness is also a morphological trait which can influence mite resistance. The leaves of the two resistant genotypes, BM13H (approx. 280 µm) and Sipima 280 (approx. 270 µm), were thinner than Sicot 71 (approx. 330 µm) grown in the field (Miyazaki J, unpublished). However, the lower epidermis, which is the distance between the underside of the leaf surface and the spongy mesophyll cell layer, was approximately 17.5 µm on all three genotypes. Thus, these three genotypes had the same distance for mites to feed on the contents of spongy mesophyll cells.”
