SummaryTo clarify the effects of prey density on fecundity in predatory insects, relationships between density of prey (adult flies of Phaenicia sericata) and number of eggs, preoviposition periods, and egg size were examined, using adult female mantids, Paratenodera angustipennis de Saussure. The results are summarized as follows. 1) The relationship between prey density and number of flies captured by a mantis per day was described by a Type II functional response curve. 2) The relationship… Expand

Functional response and effects of prey species, Acyrtosiphon pisum (Harris) and Aphis craccivora Koch, and its density on larval performance such as survival rate and development time in addition toExpand
Factors affecting the reproductive success of the crab spider Misumenoides formosipes: the covariance between juvenile and adult traits
TLDR
The final weight gained by spiders in the antepenultimate and penultimate instars explained nearly all the variation in carapace width in the penultimate and adult instars, respectively, finding that constraints on foraging in late juvenile stages are different from the adult stage. Expand
Effects of prey species and its density on larval performance of two species of hoverfly larvae, Episyrphus balteatus de Geer and Eupeodes corollae Fabricius (Diptera: Syrphidae)
TLDR
Differences in the effects of prey species and its density on the larval performance of the two hoverflies are attributable to the differences in the range of food habit and body size. Expand
Feeding and Fecundity in the Predator, Cryptolaemus montrouzieri Mulsant (Coleoptera: Coccinellidae)
TLDR
Food consumption of the adult female C. montrouzieri was found to be positively correlated with food consumption during the grub stage and the regression analysis explained 54% of the variability. Expand
Growth, egg production, and population density of the spider,Nephila clavata in relation to food conditions in the field
TLDR
Although the population densities in the early part of the development period differed considerably between the two study plots, the difference became obscure after September when almost all spiders had matured, which suggests that the number of adult individuals had little relation to that of juveniles.

Consequences of Intraspecific Variation in Female Body Size in Stagmomantis limbata (Mantodea: Mantidae): Feeding Ecology, Male Attraction, and Egg Production
TLDR
It was found that longer females ate longer prey in the field and showed greater breadth of prey size than shorter females, and had higher fecundity and laid heavier oothecae than short females. Expand
Contrasting scales of oviposition and parasitism in praying mantids
TLDR
A lack of congruency in the scales of oothecal deposition and parasitism at low densities (which is absent when oothecae are at high densities) may be explained in part by behavioral aspects of the parasite's reproduction, including increased host fidelity by relatively sedentary female parasites. Expand
Food Limitation of Reproduction and Survival For Populations of Brachinus (Coleoptera: Carabidae)
TLDR
Experimental supplementation of food in the field significantly raised the CF of teneral and nonteneral B. lateralis relative to controls and competition for food is possible, and may help explain spatial differences in assemblage composition. Expand
Cannibalism and interspecific predation in two predatory ladybirds in relation to prey abundance in the field
TLDR
The results suggest that prey abundance influenced the frequency of cannibalism and intraguild predation, which were important in structuring this guild of ladybirds. Expand

Responses to starvation in a mantis, Paratenodera angustipennis (S.)
TLDR
The metabolic rate per individual was greatest at satiation, but the rate per unit weight was maximum on the 5th day after satiation when the food had been just digested completely, and both decreased with the progress of starvation. Expand
Functional response of three species of Phytoseiidae (Acarina) to prey density.
TLDR
The functional response curve of the three predators increased in magnitude when waterproofed paper arenas were used, and four possible reasons for this increase are discussed: reduced number of prey eggs for consumption by T . Expand
Ecological studies of a mantid,Paratenodera angustipennis de saussure I. Evaluation of the feeding condition in natural habitats
TLDR
Using a mantid, Paratenodera angustipennis DE SAUSSURE as the predator, the feeding condition of its field population from the above viewpoint was analized and the intensity of starvation in this mantid in some different habitats was estimated and the actual status of feeding for its field populations was evaluated.

Food Limitation of the Spider Linyphia marginata: Experimental Field Studies
TLDR
It appears that mature L. marginate compete for food; hence, for them, food supply acts as a density-dependent limiting factor, and that though a shortage of food limits growth, immature spiders are not competing for food. Expand
Ecological Consequences of Food Limitation for Adult Mantids (Tenodera ardifolia sinensis Saussure)
TLDR
The data suggest that food availability for nymphs affects initial sizes of adults, which in turn determines potential weight gain during the adult portion of the life cycle, and the magnitude and extent to which it is realized affects fecundity. Expand
EFFECTS OF FEEDING HISTORY ON SHORT-TERM AND LONG-TERM FUNCTIONAL RESPONSES IN NOTONECTA HOFFMANNI
TLDR
Growth rate and size at moult increased with prey density for Notonecta hoffmanni Hungerford nymphs raised at various densities of their mosquito larvae prey, and variation in predator size within one instar (IV) was as important as differences in the predators' size in different instars in determining the predator's feeding rate.

Influence of food quantity and quality on polymorphic dispersal behaviors in the gypsy moth, Lymantria dispar
TLDR
The role of food in the activity and dispersal of first-instar gypsy moths is discussed and larvae from eggs of different sizes exhibit differences in level of activity when responding to a light source. Expand
Responses to Starvation in the Spiders Lycosa Lenta Hentz and Filistata Hibernalis (Hentz)
TLDR
Comparison of weights and body dimensions of individuals from field populations with those of known nutritional status showed that lack of food is a problem for field populations of both species, suggesting that starved individuals have the capacity to double their body weight through ingestion of large amounts of food when available. Expand
Maximum and actual field feeding-rates in larvae of the damselfly Pyrrhosoma nymphula (Sulzer) (Odonata: Zygoptera)
TLDR
Maximum feeding-rate declined steadily throughout metamorphosis in the final instar and stopped completely prior to emergence of the adult of the damselfly Pyrrhosoma nymphula, and estimates of feeding rates in the field with maximum feeding-rates for larvae of the same size at the same temperature are compared.
