They are thought to mostly grow vegetatively, a trait assumed to limit adaptability. However, AMF can also harbor genetically different nuclei (nucleotypes). It has been shown that one AMF can produce genotypically novel offspring(More)
Carbon dioxide and cold narcosis have been found to have various effects on insect behaviour and physiology, ranging from changes in fecundity and memory to alterations in aggression and foraging. In spite of these potentially confounding effects, narcosis is repeatedly used to handle insects prior to experimental studies. To begin disentangling the(More)
