Significance of spring migration and flexibility in flight‐muscle histolysis in waterstriders (Heteroptera, Gerridae)
Abstract. 1. Individuals of long‐winged waterstrider (Gerridae) species were found in spring far from their breeding habitats, which indicates that they fly before reproduction.
Ballooning propensity of canopy and understorey spiders in a mature temperate hardwood forest
1. Spiders frequently disperse and colonise habitats through ballooning, a passive aerial dispersal process. Ballooning is pre‐eminent in open habitat spider communities and its propensity can beExpand
PHORESY AS MIGRATION ‐ SOME FUNCTIONAL ASPECTS OF PHORESY IN MITES
TLDR
The dispersive role of mite phoresy is presented in the light of modern theories of migration with the aim of its characterization behaviourally, ecologically and physiologically. Expand
Wind dispersal and settling of first‐instar crawlers of the cochineal insect Dactylopius austrinus (Homoptera: Coccoidea: Dactylopiidae)
TLDR
The efficiency of D.austrinus as a biological control agent depends on successful colonization of the cactus weed Opuntia aurantiaca, and this work demonstrates the importance of successful colonization to the efficiency of this agent. Expand
Behavioural Variation Among Scolytids in Relation to Their Habitat
TLDR
The results suggest that the phenomenon of secondary attraction observed among scolytids may have evolved in conjunction with their utilization of transitory habitats. Expand
Mobility is related to species traits in noctuid moths
TLDR
The relation between mobility and species trait in noctuid moths is explored and species traits have been studied in relation to range shifts, extinction risks, and responses to habitat area and isolation. Expand
Aerial dispersal in relation to habitat in eight wolf spider species (Pardosa, Araneae, Lycosidae)
TLDR
In the eight Pardosa species studied, aerial dispersal occurs generally in the young instars, with species with relatively high and relatively low dispersal capacities within the different systematic groups in the genus. Expand
The Hormonal Control of Flight in the Milkweed Bug, Oncopeltus Fasciatus
TLDR
Insect migration has been described as a distinct physiological, behavioral and ecological syndrome that is usually post-teneral and pre-reproductive, most migrants being characterized by immature ovaries, hypertrophied fat bodies and often also by a positive phototaxis. Expand
Phoretic Mites and Carcasses: Acari Transported by Organisms Associated with Animal and Human Decomposition
TLDR
Forensic investigations have so far been primarily limited to insects, focussing mainly on flies and beetles as often the largest and most persistent representatives. Expand

Flight Muscle Autolysis and Reproduction in Aphids
TLDR
It is found that flight in Myzus persicae and other species of aphids is not possible after the first few days from the final ecdysis due to autolysis of the flight muscles. Expand
Insect Pests of Cotton in Tropical Africa
TLDR
The insect pests of cotton in tropical Africa is studied to find out how to protect against them and how to identify and remove them. Expand
Local Distribution and Dispersal Paths of Blowflies in Hill Country.
TLDR
Between July and September 1953 a series of carrion-bait trappings of blowflies was carried out on an upland area of sheepwalks, on the Roxburgh-Dumfries border, to study the distribution of blow flies over terrain showing topographic diversity, and to map the pattern of dispersal through the local populations of a released group ofblowflies.

The Habitat, Distribution and Dispersal of the Psychid Moth, Luffia ferchaultella, in England and Wales
THIS paper is part of the results of a biological investigation of the small Psychid moth Luffia ferchaultella (Stephens). The species is parthenogenetic and wingless. The larvae are case-bearers andExpand
The Migratory Habit of the Spotted Cucumber Beetle
TLDR
According to the information obtained, this species regularly migrates northward during the spring and early summer and the offspring migrate back to the South during the fall, with none surviving the winter north of central Missouri, and no true hibernation occurring in the South. Expand
Effect of Flight on Behaviour of Aphis fabae Scop.
TLDR
The following experiments show that the change can be brought about by flight itself, and that it is not necessarily permanent. Expand
APHID MIGRATION IN RELATION TO WEATHER
TLDR
Migration has been envisaged largely as a calm‐weather phenomenon, whose intensity is limited mainly by the effects of wind‐speed on take‐off behaviour, and the ‘flight‐activity hypothesis’ developed from both laboratory and field work. Expand
Some Effects of Secondary Dispersive Processes on Distribution
TLDR
This ability may be critical in providing a means whereby aggregative tendencies may be reduced as overall density increases, and without such a reduction, mutual interference between individuals within an aggregation may well limit a population at rather low overall densities. Expand
Seasonal changes in flight direction of migrant butterflies in the British Isles
For many years naturalists were reluctant to admit that butterflies, moths and other frail insects were capable of undertaking unidirectional 'migration' flights of hundreds of miles or more. WhenExpand
Morphometrics, Parasites, and Predators of Migrant Melanoplus bilituratus (Wlk.) (Orthoptera: Acrididae) in Saskatchewan in 1940
TLDR
Parker et al. (1955) reported the spectacular outbreaks and migrations of the migratory grasshopper in 1938 and 1939 in the north-central states of South Dakota, North Dakota and Montana, U.S.A. Expand
