Effects of temperature on the life-history traits of Sancassania (Caloglyphus) berlesei (Acari: Astigmatina: Acaridae) feeding on root-knot nematodes, Meloidogyne spp. (Nematoda: Meloidogynidae)
TLDR
It is noted that S. berlesei that fed on egg masses of root-knot nematodes showed a longer developmental time and a lower reproductive rate than Sancassania mites that feed on other diets, but the relatively high value of rm suggests that this mite may have certain advantages as a biocontrol agent of root.
Trophic structure of soil animal food webs of deciduous forests as analyzed by stable isotope labeling
TLDR
The results of this thesis indicate that energy fluxes in the food web of beech and ash forests differ markedly, and reinforces the current view, that root- derived resources outweigh litter-derived resources in nourishing soil food webs.
The nematode-based food-chain of a temperate deciduous forest
TLDR
Molecular gut content analysis provides the opportunity to investigate predator-prey interactions allowing to trace trophic links between certain prey taxa and higher consumers of the soil food web.
Feeding habits and multifunctional classification of soil-associated consumers from protists to vertebrates.
TLDR
A comprehensive review of the feeding habits of consumers in soil, including protists, micro-, meso- and macrofauna (invertebrates), and soil-associated vertebrates is provided, and an overarching classification across taxa focusing on key universal traits such as food resource preferences, body masses, microhabitat specialisation, protection and hunting mechanisms is compiled.
The soil mite Cunaxa capreolus (Acari: Cunaxidae) as a predator of the root-knot nematode, Meloidogyne incognita and the citrus Nematode, Tylenchulus semipenetrans: Implications for biological control
TLDR
The results show that C. capreolus multiplied rapidly when juveniles of M. incognita and J2 juveniles of T. semipenetrans were offered as prey, indicating the cunaxid mite’s potential for regulating population densities of these two pests.
A new species of Pergalumna (Acari: Oribatida: Galumnidae) from southeastern Iran, including a key to all species of the genus from the Palaearctic region
TLDR
A new species of oribatid mite of the family Galumnidae, Pergalumna sistanbaluchestanica sp.
Cheliceral chelal design in free-living astigmatid mites
  • C. Bowman
  • Biology, Environmental Science
    Experimental & applied acarology
  • 2021
TLDR
Cheliceral chelal design in free-living astigmatid mites (Arthropoda: Acari) is reviewed within a mechanical model and clear statistical correlations in the specifics of their mechanical design with the type of habitat and food consumed (their ‘biome’) are found.
Feeding design in free-living mesostigmatid chelicerae (Acari: Anactinotrichida)
  • C. Bowman
  • Biology, Environmental Science
    Experimental & applied acarology
  • 2021
TLDR
This review shows that predatory mesostigmatids do have cheliceral designs with clear rational purposes, and evidence for a resource partitioning model in the evolution of gnathosomal development is found.
Parasite Microremains: Preservation, Recovery, Processing, and Identification
TLDR
In this chapter, the importance of paleoparasitology is discussed, and strategies and recommendations on sample collection, sample processing, use of parasitological techniques, and researcher training are presented.
Biology and predation capacity of Parasitus bituberosus (Acari: Mesostigmata: Parasitidae) on Frankliniella occidentalis (Thysanoptera: Thripidae), and free-living nematodes as its complementary prey.
TLDR
The results of this study warrant further investigation of this predator, to evaluate methods for its mass production, inclusion in conservation biocontrol programs and performance against the pest at a larger scale.

Ecology of Soil Animals
Mite predators of the house fly: a comparison of Fuscuropoda vegetans and Macrocheles muscaedomesticae.
TLDR
Fuscuropoda vegetans adults are gregarious feeders and the density of M. muscaedomesticae in poultry manure caged hens was maximum after 2–3 weeks of manure accumulation and declined slowly thereafter and was the dominant or nearly dominant mite.
Biological investigations on a new species of Ceratozetes and of Pergalumna (Acarina: Cryptostigmata)
All essential stages of Ceratozetes jeweli n. sp. and Pergalumna omniphagous n. sp. are described and illustrated. Both species were collected in south Louisiana. The time from egg deposition to
