Topic: Myndus


  
  Myndus - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Myndus was an ancient Greek city of Caria in Asia Minor, built on the Homonymous (sp?) Peninsula.
Once the cynic philosopher Diogenes of Sinope visited Myndos and upon noticing how large the city gates were relative to the town, he cynically said; "Oh men of Myndos, I urge you to shut the city gates, as your town might exit from these!"
In V.33, Herodotus relates the story of how a captain from Myndus, Scylax, was found to have left no guards on his ship while a Persian force was preparing to attack the island of Naxos.

 Alexander of Myndus - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Alexander of Myndus (or Myndos) in Caria, was a Greek writer who some believe lived during the first century AD but this date is uncertain.
Works ascribed to Alexander of Myndus include a History of Beasts (Ktenon historia), On Animals (Peri zoön, probably the same work), On Birds (Peri ptenon, a separate work), a work on myths, and on either the interpretation of dreams or on divination generally.
It is possible that the illustrations of birds in the Vienna Dioscurides, which appear to be based on illustrations from an older, different treatise, as they don't relate directly to the treatise they illustrate, are derived from illustrations of the lost treatise on birds of Alexander of Myndus.

 The Story of Myndus
It is said that the philosopher Diogenes once visited Myndus, and observing that the gates were large but the city small, advised the Myndians to keep their gates closed, or their city would be running away.
In the third century Myndus was mostly in the hands of the Ptolemies, and was still so in 197 BC when the Rhodians, as friends of Egypt, undertook to protect her ‘allies’ against Antiochus III of Syria, and gave their freedom to Myndus and others.
Imperial coinage of Myndus is noticeably scanty, and it may be that the city did not prosper under the Empire as much as most.

 IPM Florida - Lethal Yellowing of Florida's Palms: Invader from the Caribbean   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-23)
Having identified Myndus crudus as a vector of lethal yellowing, we studied its life cycle to try to find where the insect was vulnerable to pest control techniques.
In studying factors other than plant cover that could influence population levels of Myndus crudus, we found that over 50% of the nymphs were on the soil surface; the rest were below the surface to a maximum depth of 3 cm.
As factors are identified that encourage or reduce populations of Myndus crudus, these can be combined in an integrated pest management approach to reducing populations of the vector.

Thus, in recognition of their unique taxonomic status, MLOs as a group are now known by the generic name of phytoplasma, to which species designations to denote individual pathogens will undoubtedly be added within the next few years.
Although experimental suppression of populations of Myndus crudus with insecticides resulted in a reduction in the spread of lethal yellowing in the experimental areas, insecticidal control of vectors on a broad scale would be too costly, environmentally deleterious, unsafe and would eventually result in insecticide-resistant vectors.
The immature stages of Myndus crudus develop on grasses and the adults feed on palms.
