such studies compiled by SeMME (1982), for instance, a total of 123 species overwintering in a supercooling condition was cited, in which 82 species overwintered aboveground, 33 on the ground surface, whereas only 8 underground, Obviously insects everwintering in the soil must be more numerous than shown by this list, though the precise ratio is at present unavailable. For a full understanding ofstrategies in insect overwintering, therefore, accumulation ofknowledge on soil overwintering… Expand
