The ecological processes underlying locust swarm formation are poorly understood. Locust species exhibit phenotypic plasticity in numerous morphological, physiological and behavioural traits as their population density increases. These density-dependent changes are commonly assumed to be adaptations for migration under heterogeneous environmental(More)
The age-dependent variations in the amount of food ingestion, egg production, and flight activity of protein-fed female Phormia terrae novae were analyzed. Also the influence of mating and forced physical performance on the time course of these parameters and on life span were tested. In virgin females, the life span with the investigated factors is(More)
