EXPANSION OF GEOGRAPHIC RANGE IN THE PINE PROCESSIONARY MOTH CAUSED BY INCREASED WINTER TEMPERATURES
TLDR
A recent latitudinal and altitudinal expansion of the pine processionary moth, Thaumetopoea pityocampa, whose larvae build silk nests and feed on pine foliage in the winter is reported, attributed to increased winter survival due to a warming trend over the past three decades.
Bark and Wood Boring Insects in Living Trees in Europe, a Synthesis
TLDR
General Conclusions and Research Priorities for Bawbilt Organisms in Europe.
The complete mitochondrial genome of the bag-shelter moth Ochrogaster lunifer (Lepidoptera, Notodontidae)
TLDR
The mitochondrial genome of O. lunifer is the first representative of superfamily Noctuoidea that account for about 40% of all described Lepidoptera and shares many features with other known lepidopteran genomes, differs however for its low A+T content and marked C-skew.
A rapid altitudinal range expansion in the pine processionary moth produced by the 2003 climatic anomaly
TLDR
A recent rapid shift of the range limit during the record hot summer of 2003 in southern Europe that has the potential to be both permanent and permanent, and to have important implications on species range dynamics in general is reported.
Urticating hairs in arthropods: their nature and medical significance.
TLDR
This review focuses on the true setae because their high density on a large number of common arthropod species has great implications for human and animal health and other mechanisms for setae-mediated disease are suggested.
Drought effects on damage by forest insects and pathogens: a meta‐analysis
TLDR
Insect and fungus feeding behaviour, affected tree part, and water stress severity are proposed as three important predictors of forest damage in drought conditions.
Genetic differentiation in the winter pine processionary moth (Thaumetopoea pityocampa — wilkinsoni complex), inferred by AFLP and mitochondrial DNA markers
TLDR
The estimates of the absolute number of migrants between populations, obtained from mitochondrial and nuclear DNA markers, suggest that gene flow is low and that a gender‐related dispersal could occur in this species.
Agricultural management, vegetation traits and landscape drive orthopteran and butterfly diversity in a grassland–forest mosaic: a multi‐scale approach
Abstract.  1. Most ecological processes at the population and community level act on multiple spatial scales. We identified the influence of grassland management, vegetation traits and landscape on
Predation by the hoopoe (Upupa epops) on pupae of Thaumetopoea pityocampa and the likelyinfluence on other natural enemies
TLDR
The hoopoe seems to bean incompletely additive mortality factor acting on the pest and it can also alter the relative Mortalities imposed by the other natural enemies.
