LADYBIRDS AND THE BIOLOGICAL CONTROL OF APHID POPULATIONS
TLDR
How the responses shown by ladybirds may have shaped what has become known as the "egg window", how cannibalism may regulate the number of ladybirds within a patch, and the consequences of this for classical biological control are considered.
Interrelationships of the Gastrotricha and their place among the Metazoa inferred from 18 S rRNA genes
TLDR
The congruence of the results with those of the cladistic analysis based on morphological traits provides confidence about the value of each dataset, and calls for widening of the research to include additional taxa of particular phylogenetic significance.
