Genetic support for random mating between left and right-mouth morphs in the dimorphic scale-eating cichlid fish Perissodus microlepis from Lake Tanganyika.
Population genetic analyses were conducted to investigate whether random mating occurs between left and right-mouth morphs of the dimorphic scale-eating cichlid fish Perissodus microlepis from twoExpand

An experimentally induced host shift in a seed beetle
Many insects use a fairly well‐defined set of host plants, but are occasionally observed on an atypical host. The seed beetle Callosobruchus maculatus (F.) (Coleoptera: Chrysomelidae: Bruchinae) hasExpand

Genetic Modification of Host Acceptance by a Seed Beetle, Callosobruchus Maculatus (Coleoptera: Bruchidae)
ABSTRACT Successful host shifts by herbivorous insects may require the modification of multiple larval and adult traits. The seed beetle Callosobruchus maculatus (F.) (Coleoptera: Bruchidae) rarelyExpand

Inheritance of Traits Mediating a Major Host Shift by a Seed Beetle, Callosobruchus maculatus (Coleoptera: Chrysomelidae: Bruchinae)
ABSTRACT The genetic basis by which insects adapt to novel host plants is poorly understood, in part because genetic changes that accompany host-range expansions often cannot be distinguished fromExpand

Does rapid adaptation to a poor-quality host by Callosobruchus maculatus (F.) cause cross-adaptation to other legume hosts?
Initial assays indicated that lentil is a very poor host for an Asian population of the seed beetle Callosobruchus maculatus (F.). Larval survival was near zero, and females laid few or no eggs onExpand
