Host plant quality and fecundity in herbivorous insects.
TLDR
It is concluded that host plant quality affects the fecundity of herbivorous insects at both the individual and the population scale.
The biology and ecology of the large pine weevil, Hylobius abietis (Coleoptera: Curculionidae): a problem of dispersal?
TLDR
It is concluded that much more research into the biology and ecology of H. abietis is required before a successful Integrated Pest Management (IPM) programme can be initiated.
The ecology of insect overwintering
TLDR
The overwintering locale - suitability and selection, as well as the stimuli controlling diapause and overwinters, are described.
Invertebrates in urban areas: A review
TLDR
Some of the trends in the abundance, diversity and richness of invertebrates related to urbanisation and the specific urban environmental and traffic factors which may be at play are discussed.
Unravelling the evolution of autumn colours: an interdisciplinary approach.
TLDR
An interdisciplinary summary of the current body of knowledge on autumn colours is provided, and unresolved issues and future avenues of research are discussed that might help reveal the evolutionary meaning of this spectacle of nature.
Insect sampling in forest ecosystems.
TLDR
This chapter discusses sampling devices and sampling design for aquatic insects, as well as techniques and methods for sampling canopy insects, and discusses sampling methods for water--filled tree holes and their artificial analogues.
Mortality during dispersal and the cost of host‐specificity in parasites: how many aphids find hosts?
TLDR
It is proposed that it is the host's role as a rendezvous for mating that constrains the migrants to their costly host-specificity, and the implications of this low success rate for the hypothesis that aphids speciate sympatrically through the formation of host races are discussed.
Effects of simulated solar radiation on conidial germination of Metarhizium anisopliae in different formulations
TLDR
Peanut oil, Shellsol plus Ondina, water plus Emoleo®, Codacide®, Natur'l oil®, Ashlade® significantly enhanced conidial tolerance against UV light for up to 6 h of exposure compared with water plus Cropspray®, Cutinol®, Actipron® and Tween.
