Body-Size Dependent Difference in Death-Feigning Behavior of Adult Callosobruchus chinensis

Abstract

Size-dependent differences in death-feigning behavior, an anti-predator defense, was examined in the adult adzuki bean beetle, Callosobruchus chinensis (Coleoptera: Bruchidae). A positive correlation was observed between the duration of death-feigning and adult body weight in two replicated experiments. Moreover, under starved condition, beetles reared… (More)
