Summary of "Effect of gamma radiation as a post-harvest disinfestation treatment against life stages of the coffee berry borer, Hypothenemus hampei (Ferrari) (Coleoptera: Curculionidae)."

Gamma radiation is mainly used for disinfesting insect pests as an alternative for harmful fumigants. The specific dose of radiation is known to affect different developmental stages of insect pests. The study was conducted to determine the effective irradiation doses for inhibition of developmental stages and adult longevity of the coffee berry borer, Hypothenemus hampei (Ferrari).

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Antioxidant; also a post-harvest dip to prevent scald on apples and pears.

Penetrating, high-energy electromagnetic radiation emitted from atomic nuclei during NUCLEAR DECAY. The range of wavelengths of emitted radiation is between 0.1 - 100 pm which overlaps the shorter, more energetic hard X-RAYS wavelengths. The distinction between gamma rays and X-rays is based on their radiation source.

Electromagnetic or corpuscular radiation capable of producing ions, directly or indirectly, in its passage through matter. The wavelengths are equal to or smaller than those of short (far) ultraviolet radiation and include gamma and X-rays and high-energy elementary particles.

An adverse effect occurring with a medical treatment that is not attributable to the actions of the treatment.

The ratio of radiation dosages required to produce identical change based on a formula comparing other types of radiation with that of gamma or roentgen rays.
