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 and… Expand

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

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 to… Expand
Invertebrates in urban areas: A review
As urbanisation is set to continue, understanding the impact on wildlife becomes increasingly important if we are to be able to conserve biodiversity. As an excellent group of bioindicators,… Expand

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 enhance… Expand
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 estimating… Expand
