Irresistible bouquet of death—how are burying beetles (Coleoptera: Silphidae: Nicrophorus) attracted by carcasses
Electroantennography and laboratory olfactometric behavioural observations showed that sulphur-containing chemicals are involved in mediating the fresh carcass attractiveness for N.vespillo and N. vespilloides.
Seven sedimentary rock reference samples from Estonia
The major oxide and trace element compositions of seven sedimentary rock reference samples (claystone, organic-rich argillite, 2 limestones, dolostone, sandstone and feldspathized volcanic ash) are
Use of infochemicals to attract carrion beetles into pitfall traps
Testing the roles of DMS, DMDS, and DMTS as attractants of carrion beetles in a field experiment in an agricultural landscape in southern Bohemia, Czech Republic found traps containing DMDS had higher trapping success than traps containing DMS.
