Sublethal Consequences of Stream‐Dwelling Predatory Stoneflies on Mayfly Growth and Fecundity
Predators can have consequences on prey populations and communities that extend well beyond direct predator-induced mortality. Predator-prey interactions often affect prey feeding rates, growthExpand

Effects of size at metamorphosis on stonefly fecundity, longevity, and reproductive success
Abstract Many organisms with complex life cycles show considerable variation in size and timing at metamorphosis. Adult males of Megarcyssignata (Plecoptera: Perlodidae) are significantly smallerExpand

Delayed Egg Hatching and Semivoltinism in the Nearctic Stonefly Megarcys signata (Plecoptera: Perlodidae)
Delayed egg hatching can influence the survival of aquatic insects by reducing exposure to competitors, predators, parasites, or unfavorable environmental conditions. We examined egg development in aExpand
