Nymphs of North American stonefly genera (Plecoptera).
TLDR
The basal branching point in north american stonefly nymphs are aquatic insects of the peltoperlidae styloperl Families and are sometimes very susceptible to the pteronarcyoidea.
Long-distance dispersal and feeding strategy of the red-sided garter snake (Thamnophis sirtalis parietalis) in the Interlake of Manitoba
TLDR
This study is an investigation of the spring and fall phases of the annual cycle of Thamnophis sirtalis in the Interlake region of Manitoba.
Seasonal Changes in the Body Composition of the Garter Snake (Thamnophis Sirtalis Parietalis) at Northern Lattitudes
TLDR
The data suggest that the animals are near starvation in May, at the end of an 8—month aphagic period, and the period of aphagia and low winter temperatures appear to be the most important factors causing seasonal changes in body composition.
Critical Thermal Maxima of Nymphs of Three Plecoptera Species from an Ozark Foothill Stream
TLDR
It appears that adaptation to summer emergence or the evolution of a semivoltine life cycle by P. capitata includes a greater ability for tolerance acclimation than found in I. namata.
Theoretical considerations of mate finding and other adult behaviors of Plecoptera
TLDR
Drumming or other means of intersexual communication are unknown in the Antarctoperlaria, and therefore may be lacking in their natural mate finding systems, and some form of finely tuned encounter site behavior may provide sufficient space‐restricted agg...
The Food Habits of Stoneflies (Plecoptera) in the Upper Gunnison River, Colorado
TLDR
Horn's Coefficient of Dietary Overlap showed significance among all predator species for major food categories, but subtle mechanisms such as prey species-and size-selectivity and temporal succession provided sufficient partitioning of the abundant food resources to allow for coexistence.
Drumming behavior of twelve North American stonefly (Plecoptera) species: First descriptions in Peltoperlidae, Taeniopterygidae and Chloroperlidae 1
Previously unreported drumming signals of 11 species in the families Peltoperlidae, Taeniopterygidae, Capniidae, Perlodidae and Chloroperlidae are described, and signals of a 12th species,
The Life Cycle of Perlesta placida (Plecoptera: Perlidae) in an Intermittent Stream in Northern Texas
TLDR
The life cycle was a fast type with greatest growth beginning in Mar., after emergence of Hydroperla crosbyi, and the 1st few instars fed primarily on detritus, whereas older carnivorous larvae preferred Chironomidae larvae.
