Long-range seasonal migration in insects: mechanisms, evolutionary drivers and ecological consequences.
Myriad tiny insect species take to the air to engage in windborne migration, but entomology also has its 'charismatic megafauna' of butterflies, large moths, dragonflies and locusts. The spectacularExpand

Selection of a nucleopolyhedrovirus for control of Spodoptera frugiperda (Lepidoptera: Noctuidae): structural, genetic, and biological comparison of four isolates from the Americas.
Spodoptera frugiperda (J. E. Smith) (Lepidoptera: Noctuidae) is the principal pest of maize in tropical and subtropical regions of the Americas. Larvae of this species are susceptible to aExpand

Identification of three mannoproteins in the cell wall of Saccharomyces cerevisiae.
Three glucanase-extractable cell wall proteins from Saccharomyces cerevisiae were purified, and their N-terminal amino acid sequences were determined. With this information, we were able to assignExpand

Animal Orientation Strategies for Movement in Flows
For organisms that fly or swim, movement results from the combined effects of the moving medium - air or water - and the organism's own locomotion. For larger organisms, propulsion contributesExpand

Flight Orientation Behaviors Promote Optimal Migration Trajectories in High-Flying Insects
Not at the Mercy of the Wind How can insects that migrate at high altitudes on fast-moving winds influence their direction of migration, when wind speeds typically exceed their self-propelled airExpand

Large carabid beetle declines in a United Kingdom monitoring network increases evidence for a widespread loss in insect biodiversity
Summary 1. Carabid beetles are important functional components of many terrestrial ecosystems. Here, we describe the first long-term, wide-scale and quantitative assessment of temporal changes in UKExpand

Vertical-Looking Radar: A New Tool for Monitoring High-Altitude Insect Migration
Abstract Many insect species engage in high-altitude, wind-borne migration, often several hundred meters above the ground. At these heights they can use the wind to travel tens or hundreds ofExpand

Seasonal migration to high latitudes results in major reproductive benefits in an insect
Little is known of the population dynamics of long-range insect migrants, and it has been suggested that the annual journeys of billions of nonhardy insects to exploit temperate zones during summerExpand

Recent insights from radar studies of insect flight.
Radar has been used to study insects in flight for over 40 years and has helped to establish the ubiquity of several migration phenomena: dawn, morning, and dusk takeoffs; approximate downwindExpand
