Methods for Rearing the Asian Longhorned Beetle (Coleoptera: Cerambycidae) on Artificial Diet
TLDR
Compared larval growth and adult parameters using three artificial diets developed in China for A. glabripennis and two developed for other members of the Lamiini, it is found that nondiapausing larvae reared on Monochamus carolinensis (Olivier) diet needed less time to pupate than nondi Papausing larvae on A.glabrip Dennis diet.
Assessment of Loss caused by Barley Mildew using Single Tillers
SUMMARY A method for estimating losses due to foliar diseases with more precision, using little space and time and without the need for artificially producing different levels of disease, is
Dartintinnus alderae n. g., n. sp., a Brackish Water Tintinnid (Ciliophora, Spirotrichea) with Dual‐ended Lorica Collapsibility
TLDR
The novel genus Dartintinnus and its type species, D. alderae are distinct from established tintinnid taxa by a lorica that collapses on both anterior and posterior ends, and the diagnosis of the family Eutintinnidae is improved, including the presence of a lateral ciliary field that had been overlooked in some Eutininnus species.
Morphological Characterizations of Four Species of Parallelostrombidium (Ciliophora, Oligotrichia), with a Note on the Phylogeny of the Genus
TLDR
Phylogenetic analyses based on SSU rRNA gene sequence data demonstrate that all four new sequences cluster with previously described congeners, suggesting the genus Parallelostrombidium is separated into two clusters, suggesting its non‐monophyly and probably corresponding to the two subgenera proposed by Agatha and Strüder‐Kypke (2014).
Combined Genome and Transcriptome Analyses of the Ciliate Schmidingerella arcuata (Spirotrichea) Reveal Patterns of DNA Elimination, Scrambling, and Inversion
TLDR
This work presents a partial micronuclear genome and macronuclear transcriptome resource for S. arcuata, acquired using single-cell techniques, and reports on pilot analyses including functional annotation and genome architecture.
Status of the American Oystercatcher ( Haematopus palliatus ) in St. Vincent and the Grenadines
The American Oystercatcher ( Haematopus palliatus ) was first reported from the Grenadine islands of St. Vincent and the Grenadines in 1950 by James Bond, who merely stated that it “evidently breeds
