Maximum foraging ranges in solitary bees: only few individuals have the capability to cover long foraging distances
Abstract To preserve populations of endangered bee species, sound knowledge of their maximum foraging distance between nest and host plants is crucial. Previous investigations predicted maximumExpand

What stops the ‘diploid male vortex’?—A simulation study for species with single locus complementary sex determination
Abstract The survival of hymenopteran populations especially that of ecologically and economically important pollinators and parasitoids, has become a major topic for empirical and theoreticalExpand

Long foraging distances impose high costs on offspring production in solitary bees.
1. Solitary bees are central place foragers returning to their nests several times a day with pollen and nectar to provision their brood cells. They are especially susceptible to landscape changesExpand

Movement patterns of the bush cricket Platycleis albopunctata in different types of habitat: matrix is not always matrix
Abstract.  1. Inter‐patch movement is usually assumed to be homogeneous across a landscape. As the intervening area between suitable patches is usually richly textured, it cannot be assumed to beExpand

Patch connectivity and sand dynamics affect dispersal‐related morphology of the blue‐winged grasshopper Oedipoda caerulescens in coastal grey dunes
Abstract.  1. Anthropogenic land use leads to increasing habitat fragmentation and habitat loss for many species. Exchange of individuals between and recolonisation of habitat patches is essentialExpand

Structured populations of the oriental fruit moth in an agricultural ecosystem
Intercontinental trade has led to multiple introductions of invasive pest species at a global scale. Molecular analyses of the structure of populations support the understanding of ecologicalExpand

Tracing spatial distribution of parasitism in fields with flowering plant strips using stable isotope marking
Abstract Flowering plant strips providing nectar food sources at field edges might influence habitat exploitation by parasitoids, and are therefore of great interest for biological control. TheExpand

The effect of translocation on movement behaviour—A test of the assumptions of behavioural studies
Animal movement behaviour is intensively investigated with capture-mark-recapture studies. For the analysis of such experiments, the influence of marking technique, handling and translocation ofExpand

Habitat suitability models for the conservation of thermophilic grasshoppers and bush crickets—simple or complex?
One goal of conservation biology is the assessment of effects of land use change on species distribution. One approach for identifying the factors, which determine habitat suitability for a speciesExpand

Patch density, movement pattern, and realised dispersal distances in a patch-matrix landscape—a simulation study
Abstract In metapopulation models it is common practice to use species-specific dispersal distances to predict the exchange of individuals between habitat patches. The influence of patch distributionExpand
