Correction. In the article, Fitness Costs of Resistance to Bacillus thuringiensis in Colorado Potato Beetle (Coleoptera: Chrysomelidae), by Andi Trisyono and Mark E. Whalon, published in the Journal of Economic Entomology, 90 (2): 267-271, the following correction is to be noted:

  • On page 268, 1st column, the 7th line of the Materials and Methods section should read as follows:
    12,300 x 10% g (mean + SEM)
