Host plant quality and fecundity in herbivorous insects.
Host plant quality is a key determinant of the fecundity of herbivorous insects. Components of host plant quality (such as carbon, nitrogen, and defensive metabolites) directly affect potential andExpand

The biology and ecology of the large pine weevil, Hylobius abietis (Coleoptera: Curculionidae): a problem of dispersal?
The biology and pest status of Hylobius abietis Linnaeus in Europe are critically reviewed. New data are presented and the relationships between the weevil and its host plants considered. In Europe,Expand

Unravelling the evolution of autumn colours: an interdisciplinary approach.
Leaf colour change is commonly observed in temperate deciduous forests in autumn. This is not simply a side effect of leaf senescence, and, in the past decade, several hypotheses have emerged toExpand

Effects of simulated solar radiation on conidial germination of Metarhizium anisopliae in different formulations
The effects of exposure time to simulated solar radiation on conidial germination of Metarhizium anisopliae were evaluated with different formulations to determine whether some of them could enhanceExpand

Mortality during dispersal and the cost of host‐specificity in parasites: how many aphids find hosts?
1. For a full assessment of explanations for the evolution of host-specificity it is necessary to estimate the probability that a dispersing parasite finds a host. We develop a method of estimatingExpand
