Extensive Natural Intraspecific Variation in Stoichiometric (C:N:P) Composition in Two Terrestrial Insect Species
Abstract Heterotrophic organisms must obtain essential elements in sufficient quantities from their food. Because plants naturally exhibit extensive variation in their elemental content, it isExpand

Sensory physiological basis for attraction in mosquitoes.
Hematophagous insects use air-borne chemical cues to guide them to resources such as blood-meal hosts, plants, and oviposition sites. Research that combines behavioral and electrophysiologicalExpand

In the laboratory, diapausing Culex pipiens L. females fed on a continuously available sugar source more frequently and longer after adult emergence than did non-diapausing females. They also showedExpand

Terpene-sensitive receptors in female Culex pipiens mosquitoes: Electrophysiology and behaviour
Abstract Mosquitoes feed on plants extensively and depend on them as a source of energy for flight and metabolic maintenance; yet little attention has been given to the cues that mosquitoes use toExpand

Endocrine events during pre-diapause and non-diapause larval-pupal development of the tobacco hornworm, Manduca sexta
Abstract The haemolymph ecdysteroid titre and in vitro capacities of prothoracic glands and corpora allata to synthesize ecdysone and juvenile hormone, respectively, during the last-larval instar ofExpand

Sensilla basiconica (grooved pegs) on the antennae of female mosquitoes: electrophysiology and morphology
The sensilla basiconica or grooved pegs of mosquitoes consist of two morphologically and functionally distinct classes. Short grooved pegs house sensory cells that are excited by lactic acid whereasExpand

A behavioural and sensory analysis of host-seeking behaviour in the diapausing mosquito Culex pipiens
Abstract Diapausing Culex pipiens females maintained in diapause-inducing conditions fail to exhibit host-seeking behaviour for at least 30 days after adult emergence. This behavioural hiatus isExpand

In vitro reprogramming of the photoperiodic clock in an insect brain-retrocerebral complex.
Pupal diapause in the tobacco hornworm Manduca sexta is a photoperiodically induced event expressed by the absence of release of the cerebral peptide prothoracicotropic hormone. A short-dayExpand
