Selection of reference genes for real-time polymerase chain reaction analysis in tissues from Bombus terrestris and Bombus lucorum of different ages.
Scent Marking in Male Premating Behavior of Bombus confusus
The marking habits of bumblebee males were revealed and the use of their labial gland secretion in scent marks was proved chemically, for the first time from natural conditions of a B. confusus locality.
Chemotaxonomical characterisation of males of Bombus lucorum (Hymenoptera: Apidae) collected in the Czech Republic
Chemically the B. lucorum occurring in the Czech Republic correspond to the earlier described "blonde form" of this species, which indicated they belonged to one species.
Analysis of triacylglycerols in fat body of bumblebees by chromatographic methods.
Composition and electrophysiological activity of constituents identified in male wing gland secretion of the bumblebee parasite Aphomia sociella.
The strong antennal responses elicited by components of the secretion suggest that one or more of these compounds constitute the sex pheromone in bumble bee wax moth Aphomia.
Identification of a new lepidopteran sex pheromone in picogram quantities using an antennal biodetector: (8E,10Z)-tetradeca-8,10-dienal from Cameraria ohridella
Marking pheromones of the cuckoo bumblebee males (Hymenoptera, Apoidea, Bombus Latreille): compositions of labial gland secretions of six species found in the Czech Republic ☆
(11Z)‐hexadec‐11‐enal enhances the attractiveness of Diatraea saccharalis main pheromone component in wind tunnel experiments
Analysis of pheromone gland extracts of sugarcane borer, Diatraea saccharalis, revealed two antennally active compounds, (9Z,11E)‐hexadeca‐9,1‐dienal and (11Z)‐ hexadec‐11‐enal, in approximately 10 : 1 ratio.
Monitoring the population dynamics of the horse chestnut leafminer Cameraria ohridella with a synthetic pheromone in Europe
It is concluded that in Central Europe C. ohridella typically has three generations per year and the pheromone monitoring can be used to detect the pest when it appears in uninfeste d areas and is also suitable to determine population densities.
A comparison of HPLC/APCI-MS and MALDI-MS for characterising triacylglycerols in insects: species-specific composition of lipids in the fat bodies of bumblebee males.
