Reproductive and subsocial behaviour in the ovoviviparous leaf beetle Gonioctena sibirica (Coleoptera: Chrysomelidae)
Abstract. 1 In the spring, females of the leaf beetle Gonioctena sibirica deposited larvae on the ventral surface of growing young leaves situated on the apical position of shoots of the willow SalixExpand

Intraclutch egg-size variation in acanthosomatid bugs: adaptive allocation of maternal investment?
If there are differences in predation risk among the offspring within a clutch, parents may allocate less resources to the offspring facing higher risk. I examined parental investment in terms of eggExpand

Biological invasion as a natural experiment of the evolutionary processes: introduction of the special feature
Although biological invasion has a devastating impact on biodiversity, it also provides a valuable opportunity for natural experiments on evolutionary responses. Alien populations are often subjectExpand

NOTES ON MATERNAL CARE IN THE OVOVIVIPAROUS LEAF BEETLE GONIOCTENA JAPONICA (COLEOPTERA: CHRYSOMELIDAE)
Subsocial behaviour, defined as postovipositional parental behaviour that promotes the survival, growth, and development of offspring, has been reported in diverse orders in insects (Tallamy and WoodExpand

Morphology of trophic eggs and ovarian dynamics in the subsocial bug Adomerus triguttulus (Heteroptera: Cydnidae)
In the subsocial burrower bug, Adomerus triguttulus (Motschulsky, 1886), females produce trophic eggs, which are inviable and serve as a food supply for hatched nymphs, and add them onto egg massesExpand

Exclusive Male Egg Care and Determinants of Brooding Success in a Millipede
The evolution of exclusive male parental care is a major and controversial issue in behavioural ecology. Although arthropods practicing paternal care are thought to be key taxa for investigating thisExpand

Prolonged maternal care inElasmucha dorsalis (Heteroptera: Acanthosomatidae)
Female parents ofElasmucha dorsalis attend their offspring and show specific sequential defensive behavior when disturbed. Intense responses of brooding females such as wing fanning were usuallyExpand

Within-clutch egg-size variation in a subsocial bug: the positional effect hypothesis
If there are differences in predation risk among the offspring within a clutch, parents should allocate less resources to the offspring facing higher risk. Predation risk, and thus offspring size,Expand

Trophic-egg production in a subsocial bug: adaptive plasticity in response to resource conditions
Adomerus triguttulus (Heteroptera: Cydnidae) females provision host Lamium spp. seeds to their nymphs. Females also produce trophic eggs, which are inviable and usually function as a food supply forExpand

Phenotypic selection and function of reproductive behavior in the subsocial bug Elasmucha putoni (Heteroptera: Acanthosomatidae)
To investigate the function of maternal care and determinants of reproductive success in the subsocial bug Elasmucha putoni (Heteroptera: Acanthosomatidae), I used two different approaches, theExpand
