  • Comparative studies between adult mantids (Tenodera ardifolia sinensis) in field populations and cohorts maintained in the laboratory on ad lib. diets suggest that females in field populations were food-limited. Food limitation apparently occurred in two cases during the time of acquiring energy to produce oothecae and in one case prior to maturation. In each case the net result was decreased fecundity. We recognize two distinct components to the life history food requirements of this species… CONTINUE READING
