Interspecific and intraspecific differences in egg development, nymphal growth and the life cycles of Fennoscandian stoneflies are examined in relation to zoogeographical aspects and evolutionary trends. Data on other European and North American species are also considered. Egg development shows considerable diversity, the main categories being ovovivipary, egg development with diapause and non-diapause development. Egg development in species in the non-diapause category can be… Expand
Multiple Developmental Pathways of Agnetina capitata (Plecoptera:Perlidae) in a Temperate Forest Stream
  • B. Peckarsky
  • Biology
  • Journal of the North American Benthological Society
  • 1994
TLDR
Growth patterns of A. capitata larvae were consistent with a complex life cycle that is completed in at least two years and characterized by multiple developmental pathways (cohort splitting), which lead to an extended larval recruitment period and large variation in larval size in the population. Expand
Life history plasticity of Nemoura trispinosa (Plecoptera: Nemouridae) along a permanent‐temporary water habitat gradient
TLDR
Maximum annual water temperature was the factor most influential on nymphalgrowth rate (non-linear relationship), whereas range in generation time was related to the degree of habitat permanence. Expand
Egg development in the mayflies of a Swiss glacial floodplain
TLDR
Rhithrogena nivata, one of the most extreme cold-adapted mayfly species, had a long egg incubation period, and success in development largely depended on the timing of hatching and discharge conditions, which could exploit extremely unstable and cold habitats where other species are limited by low water temperatures. Expand
Life strategies of 3 Perlodidae species (Plecoptera) in a Mediterranean seasonal stream in southern Europe
TLDR
All 3 Perlodidae species in a Mediterranean seasonal stream in the southern Iberian Peninsula had high secondary production relative to other stonefly species from both temporary and permanent waters, and prey electivity patterns differed among species. Expand
Life cycle and nymphal feeding of Rhabdiopteryx christinae Theischinger 1975 (Plecoptera: Taeniopterygidae)
TLDR
The study of nymphal gut contents showed that R. christinae acts mainly as collector and scraper (epiphytic and epilitic diatoms), as it is generally accepted for the family Taeniopterygidae. Expand
Effect of temperature on egg development in the Australian stonefly genus, Austrocercella Illies (Plecoptera : Notonemouridae)
TLDR
Austrocercella shows egg developmental relationships similar to those found in many northern hemisphere stonefly species, including the Nemouridae, which reflects life-cycle timing and temperatures likely to be experienced by the egg stage. Expand
The life cycle of Podmosta macdunnoughi (Ricker) in the Lower Laurentians, Quebec (Plecoptera: Nemouridae), with a discussion on embryonic diapause
TLDR
Though a wide range of sizes was present during the winter, there was a resynchronisation of the population before emergence and a short emergence period due to rapid growth of the smaller nymphs. Expand
Life histories of stoneflies (Plecoptera) in the Rio Conejos of southern Colorado
-Thirty-one stonefly species representing eight families were collected during the March 1987 to May 1990 study period. Genera represented by more than one species included Capnia, Utacapnia,Expand
Development of aquatic insect eggs in relation to temperature and strategies for dealing with different thermal environments
TLDR
It is suggested that it occurs widely in eggs of Plecoptera and in the mayfly Rhithrogena loyolaea , cold-adapted species that may use diapause to survive periods of high temperature. Expand
Inter‐ and intra‐specific differences in the number of larval instars in British populations of 24 species of stoneflies (Plecoptera)
TLDR
The present study determines inter- and intra-specific differences in the number of larval instars in British populations of 24 species of stoneflies, and tests Dyar’s hypothesis that growth followed a geometric progression, and provides a sound basis for ontogenetic studies on 28 species of Plecoptera and their role in aquatic ecosystems.

Variability In the rate of egg development of the stonefly, Nemoura cinerea (Plecoptera)
TLDR
Nemoura cinerea shows more variation in the rate of egg development than most other stoneflies, which explains the wide size range in nymphal populations and the species’ extended emergence period. Expand
The effect of temperature on the egg incubation period and nymphal growth of two Nemoura species (Plecoptera) from subarctic fennoscandia
TLDR
Field studies of Nemoura arctica and N. viki showed that the two species preferred different biotopes and indicated differences in their life‐cycles, but no significant interspecific difference existed between the regression lines of the relationship between the temperature and egg incubation period. Expand
Intraspecific variation in the biology of eggs and nymphs of Norwegian populations of Leuctra hippopus (Plecoptera)
TLDR
The duration of the egg incubation period, the hatching success and nymphal growth of three local Norwegian populations of Leuctra hippopus Kempney in relation to temperature were studied in the laboratory and no significant differences were found in regard to temperature. Expand
Egg hatching and resource partitioning in stoneflies (Plecoptera) : Ten British species in the family Nemouridae
TLDR
Interspecific differences in egg development in the ten species are related to their different larval habitats and flight periods (months in which adults are present) and ensure a continual succession of species throughout the year and a reduction in competition between closely-related species. Expand
Studies on egg development in the Fennoscandian Isoperla species (Plecoptera)
TLDR
Three species of Isoperla occur in Fennoscandia and the relationship between the egg incubation period and the water temperature was linear on logarithmic scales, while for /. Expand
Diapause and quiescence in eggs of Systellognatha stonefly species (Plecoptera) occuring in alpine areas of Norway
TLDR
Eggs of the stoneflies Diura bicaudata and Arcynopteryx compacta and Dinocras cephalotes not recorded above the sub-alpine, reacted differently to the same temperatures, enabling the species to survive outside its normal distribution area. Expand
The Influence of Temperature on Nymphal Growth Rates in Mountain Stoneflies (Plecoptera)
TLDR
There was considerable variation in growth rate throughout the year, there being a strong positive correlation (P < .001) and a monotonically increasing relationship between specific growth rate and mean water temperature. Expand
Hatching time and growth of Nemurellapictetii (Plecoptera: Nemouridae) in the laboratory and a Lake District stream
TLDR
Nemurella pictetii Klapaeplek took 2 years to complete its life cycle in both the laboratory and a small stream in the English Lake District, and its similarity to laboratory growth rates under optimum conditions suggests that the availability of resources, such as food and space, was not restricting growth in the stream. Expand
The biology and life cycle of Nemoura avicularis Morton (Plecoptera)
TLDR
The life cycle in the field was followed for a 2-year period, and eggs hatched during April, May and the first half of June, and growth then continued more or less continuously until late January when the nymphs were fully grown. Expand
Temperature‐induced changes in the life cycle of Leuctra nigra(Plecoptera: Leuctridae) from a Lake District stream
TLDR
The optimum habitat for this species appears to be a summer cool stream (maximum temperature <14°C) and the optimal life cycle seems to be about 2 years from egg to adult, which is high in terms of survival and egg production. Expand
