HYDROLOGIC INFLUENCES ON INSECT EMERGENCE PRODUCTION FROM CENTRAL PLATTE RIVER WETLANDS
TLDR
Results indicate that the hydrology of central Platte River wetlands exerts a strong influence on insect species richness and emergence production, and that intermittent sites harbor the highest insect diversity and produce more emergent insect biomass. Expand
Production and Emergence of Chironomids in a Wet Gravel Pit
TLDR
The emergence period was more extended than in previous years and showed a clear series of peaks as different species emerged, indicating that a very large proportion of the annual production is exported from the lake. Expand
Sampling Emerging Chironomidae (Diptera) with Submerged Funnel Traps in a New Northern Canadian Reservoir, Southern Indian Lake, Manitoba
We examined sampling characteristics of submerged funnel traps which were used to study emergence of Chironomidae in a large boreal riverine reservoir. Clay, bedrock, and marsh shorelines wereExpand
The ecology of the Chironomidae (Diptera) in a new eutrophic reservoir
TLDR
The Ecology of the Chironomidae (Diptera) in a New Eutrophic Reservoir is studied to determine the phytochemical niche of the chironomids in a new eutrophic reservoir. Expand
The colonisation of experimental ponds by Chironomidae (Diptera)
TLDR
The pioneer chironomid communities in the ponds showed that the pond communities were remarkably uniform in 1977, the first year of their existence, due to the predominance of Tanytarsus gracilentus, but in 1978 the communities were much more variable. Expand
Observational and Experimental Methods for the Estimation of Natality, Mortality and Dispersal
Values for the ‘pathways’ through which population size changes may also be obtained by the subtraction or integration of census figures in a budget: methods of calculation and of analysis of budgetsExpand
Seasonal emergence of chironomids in relation to egglaying and hatching of ducks in a restored lake (northern Sweden)
TLDR
The hatching of ducklings was preceded by the peak emergence of chironomids, so that the ducklings at Lake Veittijrvi were favoured by the presence of an abundant and accessible high quality food. Expand
