Comparison of the effects of constant or variable temperatures on the development length of Damaeus onustus (Acarina: Oribatei)

  title={Comparison of the effects of constant or variable temperatures on the development length of Damaeus onustus (Acarina: Oribatei)},
  author={Philippe Lebrun},
Comparaison des effets des temperatures constantes ou variables sur la duree de deeveloppement de Damaeus onustus (Acarina: Oribatei). - This paper deals with comparison of the developmental period of ’eggs’ of Damaeus onustus at a given mean temperature applied either constantly either variabily with Jess or well marked amplitudes. The development of 71 eggs has been studied from September 73 to April 74. For each egg the real developmental period (from oviposition to hatching), the… Expand

The present study attempts to elucidate possible microevolutionary adaptations of life-history traits of high-latitude populations of the holarctic, littoral oribatid mite Ameronothrus lineatus by comparing arctic and temperate populations, and suggests adaptation of the species to the highly seasonal arctic environment.

Adult survival and reproduction in an arctic mite, Ameronothrus lineatus (Acari, Oribatida): effects of temperature and winter cold
A simulated winter with freezing temperatures increased male survival and positively affected all aspects of reproduction the following laboratory summer, suggesting a positive effect of daily temperature fluctuations. Expand
Long life cycle and high adult survival in an arctic population of the mite Ameronothrus lineatus (Acari, Oribatida) from Svalbard
Survition and development in an arctic population of the oribatid mite Ameronothrus lineatus living on cyanobacterial mats seemed to depend on gender, with males developing faster than females and most of the adults lived for 2–3 years. Expand
Effects of diurnal temperature fluctuations on population responses of forest floor mites
A trade-off between reproduction and adult mite survival that is regulated by temperature regime seems to exist in N. silvestris. Expand
General Ecological Principles Which are Illustrated by Population Studies of Uropodid Mites
This chapter deals with demography, including survivorship, fecundity, and productivity, and proposes precise methods for studying population dynamics of soil dwelling mites, and evaluates demographic parameters, productivity devoted to growth and reproduction, and the P/B ratio. Expand
Oribatid mites: prospects for their use in ecotoxicology
It is concluded that oribatid mites hold a great potential for use in ecotoxicology, due to the structural and functional complexity of their communities, and several peculiarities not found in other arthropods. Expand
Evolutionary Aspects of Oribatid Mite Life Histories and Consequences for the Origin of the Astigmata
This chapter represents a first attempt at developing a phylogenetic context for the surprisingly large volume of literature that deals with various aspects of oribatid life histories. Expand
