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 be

PHORESY AS MIGRATION ‐ SOME FUNCTIONAL ASPECTS OF PHORESY IN MITES

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.

Wind dispersal and settling of first‐instar crawlers of the cochineal insect Dactylopius austrinus (Homoptera: Coccoidea: Dactylopiidae)

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.

Behavioural Variation Among Scolytids in Relation to Their Habitat

The results suggest that the phenomenon of secondary attraction observed among scolytids may have evolved in conjunction with their utilization of transitory habitats.

Mobility is related to species traits in noctuid moths

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.

Aerial dispersal in relation to habitat in eight wolf spider species (Pardosa, Araneae, Lycosidae)

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.

Phoretic Mites and Carcasses: Acari Transported by Organisms Associated with Animal and Human Decomposition

Forensic investigations have so far been primarily limited to insects, focussing mainly on flies and beetles as often the largest and most persistent representatives.

Abstract Newly emerged adults of Dendroctonus pseudotsugae Hopkins were separated into pairs of similar size. One beetle from each pair was used as a control; the other was flown on a rotating mill.

Flight Muscle Autolysis and Reproduction in Aphids

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.

Insect Pests of Cotton in Tropical Africa

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.

Local Distribution and Dispersal Paths of Blowflies in Hill Country.

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 and

The Migratory Habit of the Spotted Cucumber Beetle

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.

Effect of Flight on Behaviour of Aphis fabae Scop.

The following experiments show that the change can be brought about by flight itself, and that it is not necessarily permanent.

APHID MIGRATION IN RELATION TO WEATHER

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.

During the course of an investigation of the dispersal of the spruce budwonm (Henson, 1950), mass flights of the insect have been studied. The records of these flights are to be found in the files of

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. When
