  • We examined environmental (food levels) and genetic (heritability and evolvability) influences on the expression of cannibalism in larvae of the ladybird beetle Harmonia axyridis Pallas (Coleoptera: Coccinellidae). In conjunction, we examined potential fitness consequences of cannibalism under different levels of food availability by measuring time of larval development and size at adult. Using a full-sib design, we split broods into food environments that differed by five-fold and measured… CONTINUE READING
