The nature of stimuli, emanating from other locusts, which are effective in inducing gregarization in the desert locust was investigated. Isolated-reared fifth-instar nymphs were subjected to tactile, visual and olfactory stimuli, presented singly and in combination, and the effect on the behavioural phase state was quantified using logistic regression analysis. Tactile stimulation provided by rolling paper spheres proved to be highly gregarizing, whether presented alone or in combination with… Expand
