Spiders of the Chihuahuan Desert of Southern New Mexico and Western Texas
A comparison of the list of species with those from three areas in the Chihuahuan Desert revealed low overlap, indicating that the regional spider fauna is still not fully known.
Field Cage Evaluation of Predators of the Soybean Looper, Pseudoplusia includens (Lepidoptera: Noctuidae)
Consumption of small larvae was largest for the nabids T. capsiformis and H. deceptivus, the lygaeids G. punctipes and G. uliginosus, and the carabid beetle Calleida decora.
Conservation strategies for the biological control of weeds
A review of the ethology of jumping spiders (Araneae, Salticidae)
Five areas of salticid ethology are reviewed: predatory strategies, courtship, maternal behaviour, silk utilisation and mimicry, which suggests that colour is important in intraspecific communication in this family.
Volatile Composition of Gutierrezia sarothrae (Broom Snakeweed) as Determined by Steam Distillation and Solid Phase Microextraction
Abstract Volatiles of Gutierezia sarothrae (broom snakeweed, snakeweed) were isolated from ground, composite tissues by steam distillation and by solid phase microextraction (SPME), then separated…
Structure and Composition of a Thrips Community in the Chihuahua Desert, New Mexico, U.S.
The results suggest that the studied thrips community has low plant specificity and the pattern of plant use observed could be the consequence of generalist feeding diets.

Interference of Boll Weevil Trapping by Spiders (Araneida) and an Evaluation of Trap Modification to Reduce Unwanted Arthropods
A study was conducted to determine the arthropod taxa that inhabit and interfere with boll weevil (BW, Anthonomus grandis) and evaluate a trap that was modified by adding a funnel treated with a…
Arboreal Spider Ecology on Saltcedar (Tamarix) at Big Spring, Howard County, Texas
