Phylogenetic constrains on mycorrhizal specificity in eight Dendrobium (Orchidaceae) species
Investigation of the structures of the OrM fungal communities of eight Dendrobium species in one niche provides evidence that the mycorrhizal specificity in the eight coexisting DendRobium species was phylogenetically conserved.
Phylogenetic constrains on Polyporus umbellatus-Armillaria associations
An analysis based on the strength of the phylogenetic signal to investigate P. umbellatus-Armillaria associations in 57 sclerotial samples across 11 provinces of China revealed that the interaction between P. Umbellatus and Armillaria is significantly influenced by the phylogenetics relationships between the Armillarians.
Fitness‐related offspring sex allocation of Anastatus disparis, a gypsy moth egg parasitoid, on different‐sized host species
It is indicated that host egg size decisively influenced the body size and sex ratio of the parasitoid offspring of Anastatus disparis and that larger hosts, especially the largest eggs of Antheraea pernyi Guérin‐Méneville (Saturniidae), might increase the fitness of A. disparis.
Influence of natal host and oviposition experience on sex allocation in a solitary egg parasitoid, Anastatus disparis (Hymenoptera, Eupelmidae)
Comparison of substitute hosts showed that natal host had almost no impact on sex allocation by A. disparis, but oviposition experience did influence sex allocation, which suggests that information females obtain from the environment influences how they allocate sex in their offspring.
(R)-(+)-citronellal identified as a female-produced sex pheromone of Aromia bungii Faldermann (Coleoptera: Cerambycidae)
The efficiency of using (R)-(+)-citronellal, alone or in combination with other attractants, to monitor and control A. bungii now requires further field experimentation and optimisation.
Do the Main Components of the Sclerotia of Umbrella Polypore Mushroom, Polyporus umbellatus (Agaricomycetes), Correlate with Armillaria Associates?
Results provide clear evidence that sclerotia of P. umbellatus associating with phylogenetic related Armillaria associates possess differing MC content, and the mechanisms of nutrient exchange in P. Umbellatus-Armillaria associations now require further elucidation.
