Discovery in 2014
New discovery on fruit fly pests:

The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations and the International Atomic Energy Agency (FAO/IAEA) have made a new discovery about four of the world’s most destructive agricultural pests. Fifty researchers from twenty countries are involved in this international collaborative research attempt. Among the researchers, I, Dr. Farzana Yesmin, am involved in this great discovery on pest fruit flies. The research findings has been published in the Systematic Entomology Journal.
According to the results of a comprehensive interdisciplinary research effort, the Oriental fruit fly, Bactrocera dorsalis, the Philippine fruit fly, Bactrocera philippinensis, the Invasive fruit fly, Bactrocera invadens and the Asian papaya fruit fly, Bactrocera papayae are actually one and the same. That is, they all belong to the same biological species. It means that the four, previously considered distinct fruit-fly species, now be combined under the single name: Bactrocera dorsalis, the Oriental fruit fly. It followed a comprehensive integrative taxonomy, examining evidence across a range of disciplines- morphological, molecular, cytogenetics, behavioural and chemoecological approaches. This species has caused immense damage to horticultural industries and food safety across Asia, Africa and the Pacific. The discovery will most certainly have implications on international trade, improved pest control measures and thus enhanced food security across the world, especially for developing countries in Asia and Africa. The discovery news published separately in the UN-FAO/IAEA website, International Plant Protection Convention (IPPC), US Newspaper Article, Australian Press Release, Wiley Online Library and many other scientific organizations as press release news.
