The larvae of the range crane fly (Tipuh simplex) are responsible for extensive damage to rangelrnd of the central valley of California, but the damage occurs infrequently in years when there are extremely high densities. These outbreaks appear to be due to favorable climatic conditions during the early larval instars. Means of biological (including pheromone), mechanical, fue, and chemical control are discussed. Early detection is a key in minimizing damage. The California annual rangeland… Expand

Response of Grassland arthropods to burning: a review
TLDR
Empirical models were developed, based on the literature, to qualitatively order selected behavioral characteristics of fire, arthropod life habits and phenology, interactions of arthropods with non-arthropods, and burning-induced habitat alterations as they regulateArthropod populations. Expand
