Communication with substrate-borne signals in small plant-dwelling insects.
Vibratory signals of plant-dwelling insects, such as land bugs of the families Cydnidae and Pentatomidae, are produced mainly by stridulation and/or vibration of some body part. Signals emitted byExpand

Genetic differentiation of geographically separated populations of the southern green stink bug Nezara viridula (Hemiptera: Pentatomidae)
Abstract Genetic variation in the southern green stink bug Nezara viridula (Linnaeus) from 11 geographically separated sampling locations (Slovenia, France, Greece, Italy, Madeira, Japan, Guadeloupe,Expand

The structure and function of songs emitted by southern green stink bugs from Brazil, Florida, Italy and Slovenia
Nezara viridula (L.) (Pentatomidae: Heteroptera) from Brazil, Florida, Italy and Slovenia, communicate by vibratory songs associated with long‐range calling and close‐range courting, rivalry andExpand

Vibrational communication in insects
Communication through substrate-borne vibrations has for long been recognized but in comparison with air-borne sound it has received very little attention. However, in recent years it has becomeExpand

Disruption of the reproductive behaviour of Scaphoideus titanus by playback of vibrational signals
Scaphoideus titanus Ball (Hemiptera: Cicadellidae: Deltocephalinae) is the vector of the grapevine disease Flavescence dorée. In S. titanus the male–female duet (MFD), based on species‐specificExpand

Reproductive strategy of the Nearctic leafhopper Scaphoideus titanus Ball (Hemiptera: Cicadellidae).
Mating behaviour of Scaphoideus titanus Ball, the vector of the grapevine disease Flavescence dorée, was investigated in order to determine the role of substrate-borne vibrational signals inExpand

The Influence of Substrate on Male Responsiveness to the Female Calling Song in Nezara viridula
The female calling song (FCS) of the southern green stink bug Nezara viridula is composed of vibrational pulse trains that include either short pulses and a long pulse (FCS-1) or just short pulsesExpand

Substrate Vibrations during Courtship in Three Drosophila species
While a plethora of studies have focused on the role of visual, chemical and near-field airborne signals in courtship of Drosophila fruit flies, the existence of substrate-borne vibrational signalsExpand

Vibrational directionality in the southern green stink bug, Nezara viridula (L.), is mediated by female song
We tested the hypothesis that male southern green stink bugs, Nezara viridula (L.), use substrate-borne songs to locate females. We recorded the responses of bugs on plants to the vibrations causedExpand
