Similarities and spatial variations of bacterial and fungal communities in field rice planthopper (Hemiptera: Delphacidae) populationsh
This study investigated the bacterial and fungal community compositions of Chinese wil d rice planthoppersLaodelphax striatellus andSogatella furcifera using parallel 16S rRNA gene amplicon and internal transcribed space region sequencing. The bacteria varied significantly between the species and were partitioned significantly by sexes, tissues and host environments in each species. The majority of bacteria were affiliated with the generaWolbachia,Cardinium,Rickettsia andPantoea. The abundance ofWolbachia was negatively correlated with that ofCardinium in both planthopper species. Compared with bacteria, the abundance and ...

Effects of a combined infection with Paranosema locustae and Beauveria bassiana on Locusta migratoria and its gut microflora
This study sought to determine whether the simultaneous use ofP. locustae andBeauveria bassiana would be a more effective control strategy. Additionally, changes in the intestinal microbial communities of migratory locusts infected with the two pathogens were analyzed to investigate the roles of gut microbes in pathogen –host interactions. The mortality rate of locusts inoculated withB. bassiana andP. locustae simultaneously was not significantly higher than expected, but the mortality rates of locusts inoculated withB. bassiana 3, 6, and 9 d after inoculation withP. locustae were significantly higher than if their e...

Benefits of heterospecific aggregation on necromass: Influence of temperature, group density and composition on fitness ‐related traits
In conclusion, necrophagous larvae benefited from heterospecific aggregations at suboptimal temperatures by adapting their migration time to that of the faster species. Since temperature changes throughout the day and over the year, the beneficiary of such a collective association also changes. The costs involved and deviations to the temperature ‐size rule highlight the complexity of the carrion ecosystem.This article is protected by copyright. All rights reserved (Source: Insect Science)

Female answer specificity to male drumming calls in three closely related species of the stonefly genus Zwicknia (Plecoptera: Capniidae)
This study examines the rate of female answers to conspecific versus heterospecific male vibratory calls in three, closely related stonefly species:Zwicknia bifrons,Z. acuta andZ. rupprechti. In a previous study those three species were recognised on the basis of their distinct male drumming calls along with differences in genital morphology and genetic divergence. During this study no ‐choice playback experiments using original male call samples from each species were performed, and the answer rate of females to conspecific and heterospecific signal variants was measured. Mixed effect logistic regression models were use...

Wing ‐fanning frequency as a releaser boosting male mating success—High‐speed video analysis of courtship behavior in Campoplex capitator, a parasitoid of Lobesia botrana
AbstractCampoplex capitator is an ichneumonid parasitoid with a narrow host range, comprising grapevine moth pests. Despite being considered one of the possible candidates for biocontrol ofLobesia botrana, knowledge about its biology is limited and mass ‐rearing for commercial purposes is still lacking. This research provides a quantitative analysis of theC. capitator courtship and mating behavior.C. capitator mating sequence was analyzed by high ‐speed video recordings. Main behavioral parameters, with special reference to male wing fanning and antennal tapping, were quantified and linked with mating success. Furtherm...

Fighting and aggressive sound determines larger male to win male ‐male competition in a bark beetle
AbstractIntrasexual selection occurs in male ‐male competition over access to females and usually results in the larger male winning. While much research has documented that size matters, little is known about how the larger male wins.Dendroctonus valens is an aggregating monogamous bark beetle in which males have large variation in body size and display intense competition over females. Behavioral observation showed two males fight each other within the gallery by pushing/shoving and stridulated more when two males encountered each other. Experiments using two different ‐sized males synchronously competing showed that...

Foliar nutrient content plays a key role in mediating the interaction of plants and insect herbivores within and across generations. Here, the weed biological control agentNeolema abbreviate is depicted feeding on its hostTradescantia fluminensis during trials measuring performance across generations on hosts with variable nitrogen content. Our study concluded that adult traits such as oviposition selection, weigh gain and longevity were largely unresponsive to parental diet. Instead, offspring diet was more important in determining performance (see pages 361 –374). Photo provided Frank Chidawanyika. (Source: Insect Science)
