Parasitic and Phoretic Mites Associated with Neotropical Harvestmen from Trinidad, West Indies
TLDR
Overall, the prevalence of infestation for Neotropical harvestmen from the Caribbean island of Trinidad was 9.9%, with significant interspecific variation in the intensity of mite infestation and significant differences in parasitism of hosts between habitats. Expand
Larval aquatic and terrestrial mites infesting a temperate assemblage of mosquitoes
TLDR
While the prevalence of aquatic mite parasitism was correlated for Culex erraticus, the invasive mosquito, Aedes albopictus, was never parasitized through the duration of the study. Expand
The interaction of temperature, dissolved oxygen and predation pressure in an aquatic predator-prey system
TLDR
Environmental conditions had significant effects on the behavior of tadpoles that increased the risk of attack by Dolomedes, and survival analyses showed a significantly earlier expression of predatory behaviors in decreased oxygen level treatments. Expand
Morphological changes during postembryonic development in two species of neotropical harvestmen (Opiliones, Laniatores, Cranaidae)
Morphological changes during postembryonic development in the Cranaidae are described on the basis of the examination of an incomplete series of larvae, nymphs, and adults of PhareicranausExpand
Intraspecific Variation in Cranial Ossification in the Tailed Frog, Ascaphus truei
TLDR
The sequence of cranial ossification in the Tailed Frog, Ascaphus truei, is described and intraspecific variation in the timing and sequence of Cranial development is examined, compared with other taxa. Expand
Diversity of Neotropical Harvestmen (Arachnida: Opiliones) Inhabiting Logs and Palm Fronds in the Rain Forests of Trinidad
TLDR
A preliminary understanding of the species diversity, compositional similarity, and relative harvestmen abundance among forest stands located within three types of rain forest of different altitudes found in Trinidad is provided. Expand
Harvestmen (Arachnida: Opiliones) of Trinidad, West Indies
TLDR
A taxonomic key for identification of the 10 families of harvestmen known from Trinidad was developed through the modification of published keys in conjunction with characters that were observed for these taxa. Expand
Comparative Ontogeny of Cranial Ossification in the Spotted Salamander, Ambystoma Maculatum, and the Tailed Frog, Ascaphus Truei
TLDR
Differences in the developmental patterns of ossification in Ambystoma maculatum and Ascaphus truei reflect basic differences in the evolution of larval life histories, and geographic variation in the sequence of cranial ossify is greater than previously reported for any species of amphibian. Expand
Sexual Variation in Jet Emissions from Scent Glands in a Neotropical Harvestmen (Opiliones: Cranaidae) from Trinidad, W.I.
TLDR
Compared the modes of emission by adult females and alpha males, it is found that when seized by forceps, approximately 50% of adults emitted enteric fluids (colourless, odourless), globules of secretions near the ozopores, or jets of fluid that were directed upwards and backwards or laterally.
