Treatments included rearing nymphs from the IInd or IIIrd until the final nymphal stadium in physical contact with similarly aged conspecific groups or with another locust species, Locusta migratoria migratorioides, as well as confining single nymphs in mesh cages, which were kept within crowds of S. gregaria or L… CONTINUE READING
