Enhancing Overwintering Mortality of Colorado Potato Beetle (Coleoptera: Chrysomelidae) by Manipulating the Temperature of Its Diapause Habitat
TLDR
Experiments were conducted to evaluate the potential of using an artificially mulched trap crop to arrest adult dispersal of Colorado potato beetle in the fall in a location that could be disturbed easily to expose adults to thermal shock and increased overwintering mortality.
Revision of the Genus Protostelium (Eumycetozoa) I: The Protostelium mycophaga Group and the P. irregularis Group
TLDR
Examination of other species of Protostelium indicates that P. nocturnum Spiegel should be retained in the genus and P. expulsum Olive & Stoianovitch should be reassigned to Soliformovum, and it seems unlikely that the species are congeneric.
Survival of Colorado Potato Beetle (Coleoptera: Chrysomelidae) After Exposure to Subzero Thermal Shocks During Diapause
TLDR
Adult Colorado potato beetles, Leptinotarsa decemlineata (Say), collected from the field in fall, were exposed to a 179-d period of controlled environmental conditions to simulate the diapause period and survival was determined immediately following cold shock and at the conclusion of the simulated diappause.
Ultrastructure and development of the amoebo-flagellate cells of the protostelidProtosporangium articulatum
TLDR
Amoebo-flagellate cells develop upon spore germination in the protostelidProtosporangium articulatum with a swarm cell-like morphology and only the nucleus-associated flagella are able to generate the jerking, helical swim typical of amoebic swims.
Fruiting body development in the mycetozoan Echinostelium bisporum
TLDR
Fruiting was followed from the prespore cell stage through the appearance of synaptonemal complexes in the spores in the simple mycetozoan Echinostelium bisporum, finding that each daughter cell then rounds up and begins to produce a sculptured spore wall.
Mitosis in the protostelid Ceratiomyxella tahitiensis (Eumycetozoa)
TLDR
Plasmodial mitosis is unique among the eumycetozoans and provides support for the hypothesis that the flagellate EumYcetozoa are derived from a common flageLLate ancestor and that certain groups of eumytozoans have independently evolved unique, obligately amoeboid states.
