Oviposition and tarsal chemoreceptors of the cabbage root fly are stimulated by glucosinolates and host plant extracts
The role of glucosinolates in the oviposition behaviour of the cabbage root fly, Delia radicum (L.) (Diptera, Anthomyiidae) was investigated using egg counts and electrophysiological recordings fromExpand

Effects of sensory stimuli on the behavioural phase state of the desert locust, Schistocerca gregaria.
The nature of stimuli, emanating from other locusts, which are effective in inducing gregarization in the desert locust was investigated. Isolated-reared fifth-instar nymphs were subjected toExpand

Parental effects on the behaviour and colouration of nymphs of the desert locust Schistocerca gregaria
Abstract The behavioural phase status of hatchling Schistocerca gregaria Forskal has been quantified using logistic regression, following treatments in which maternal and paternal phase, densityExpand

The time‐course of behavioural phase change in nymphs of the desert locust, Schistocerca gregaria
Abstract. The time‐course of behavioural phase change was investigated in nymphs of Schistocerca gregaria, using logistic regression analysis of behaviour recorded in a standard assay. GregarizationExpand

The trail following behaviour of Yponomeuta cagnagellus
In this study the trail following behaviour of the caterpillar Yponomeuta cagnagellus (Hübner) (Lepidoptera, Yponomeutidae) is investigated. It is demonstrated that these caterpillars follow trailsExpand

Behaviour and abomasal damage in individual veal calves
Abstract The relationship between abomasal damage and individual behavioural patterns of 61 crated veal calves (53 ♂ ♂ and 8 ♀ ♀) was analysed. The calves were bucket-fed twice a day with milkExpand

Oviposition in Yponomeuta cagnagellus: the importance of contact cues for host plant acceptance
Small ermine moths (Yponomeutidae: Lepidoptera) are specialist herbivores. Species within the genus Yponomeuta are each specialized on a limited number of plant species, mainly within generaExpand

The influence of environmental microstructure on the behavioural phase state and distribution of the desert locust Schistocerca gregaria
Abstract. In previous studies we used logistic regression analysis to quantify the change in behavioural phase state of Schistocerca gregaria (Forskål) nymphs subjected to variations in populationExpand

An analysis of the behavioural effects of crowding and re‐isolation on solitary‐reared adult desert locusts (Schistocerca gregaria) and their offspring
Abstract. The time‐course of behavioural change in response to crowding and re‐isolation was investigated in adults of Schistocerca gregaria Forskål (Orthoptera, Acrididae) using logistic regressionExpand
