3 Diversity of Arthropods Preyed Upon by the Carnivorous Plant Pinguicula Moranensis (Lentibulariaceae) in a Temperate Forest of Central Mexico (Report) - Southwestern Naturalist
Auteur : Southwestern Naturalist
Genre : Science de la vie
The immediate benefit of a carnivorous habit in plants is a significant increase in rate of photosynthesis derived from a higher concentration of nutrients in leaves (Aldenius et al., 1983; Wakefield et al., 2005; Ellison, 2006). Plants obtain nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium, and magnesium from captured prey; nonetheless, ca. 60% of nitrogen is sequestered by bacteria (Karlsson and Carlsson, 1984; Adamec, 2002; Farnsworth and Ellison, 2008). Incorporation of nutrients coming from prey allows plants to assign resources to roots for uptake of nitrogen (Karlsson and Carlsson, 1984; Adamec, 2002). In this way, economy of nutrients in carnivorous plants, expressed in terms ofefficiencies of use of photosynthetic nutrients, is closely linked to capture of prey. This resolves deficiencies of nutrients that generally characterize the substrate where the plant grows (Farnsworth and Ellison, 2008)

4 Effect of Organic Mulches on Soil Surface Insects and Other Arthropods (Report) - Florida Entomologist
Auteur : Florida Entomologist
Genre : Science de la vie
Use of cover crop residues as organic mulches has a number of advantages to farming systems such as reducing soil erosion, conserving soil moisture, moderating soil temperature, improving infiltration of water, and providing a slow-release source of nutrients (Gruda 2008; Hatwig & Ammon 2002; Hatwig & Hoffman 1975; Powers & McSorley 2000; Snapp et al. 2005; Westerman & Bicudo 2005). Plant mulches can be an effective way to provide shelter for predatory insects (Johnson et al. 2004) and to control weeds (Reeleder et al. 2004; Teasdale et al. 2004). Mulches can help to maintain soil moisture required for plant vigor and to promote plant tolerance to the attack of insect pests (Johnson et al. 2004). Cover crops and intercrops have been used as living mulches for managing some insect pests. Alfalfa (Medicago sativa L.) and kura clover (Trifolium ambiguum M. Bieb.) mulches inc

Auteur : K. Ozaki, J. Yukawa, T. Ohgushi & P.W. Price
Genre : Science de la vie
This book is the result of an international symposium on gall-inducing arthropods, which was held September 5-9, 2005, in Kyoto, Japan. It was organized as the 4th international symposium on gall-inducing insects and as the symposium of the In­ ternational Union of Forestry Research Organizations (lUFRO) working group, 7.03.02, Gall-Inducing Insects. The book addresses recent developments in the ecology, evolution, systematics, physiology, and biodiversity of gall-inducing arthropods, with individual contri­ butions ranging in scope from detailed descriptions to profoundly synthetic stud­ ies. One underlying theme of the book is the various impacts of gall induction that indirectly affect insect communities on the host plant. The other important contri­ bution is the highly intricate and dynamic interactions between galling arthropods and their uniquely specialized host plants. Inclu

8 Teaching Students About Biodiversity: By Studying the Correlation Between Plants & Arthropods (Inquiry & INVESTIGATION) - The American Biology Teacher
Auteur : The American Biology Teacher
Genre : Science de la vie
Biodiversity is an ecological buzz-word that has garnered a great deal of attention for the past several decades. The main focus has been on human effects on biodiversity. Humans mainly affect biodiversity directly through development, which decreases wildlife habitat (Dodd, 1987; Greene, 1997), or indirectly through habitat fragmentation, introduction of exotic species, or alteration of natural cycles (e.g., suppression of natural fires; McClain 8z Anderson, 1990; Owens ST Cole, 2003). Much attention has been given to human impacts on biodiversity and many lessons about this topic have been developed for the classroom (Kishbaugh, 2002; Almeida et al., 2006). While biodiversity curricula for the classroom have been inventive and noteworthy, students first need an introduction to biodiversity, including an introduction to the concept, common ecological terms often associated with biodiver

10 Insects and Other Arthropods of Economic Importance in Indiana in 2004. - Proceedings of the Indiana Academy of Science
Auteur : Proceedings of the Indiana Academy of Science
Genre : Ingénierie
ABSTRACT. Indiana experienced a number of exotic invasive insects of regulatory concern in 2004. Among the species are emerald ash borer, European Sirex woodwasp, Asian ambrosia beetle, two species of longhorned beetles from China, banded elm bark beetle, and Cydella (Tortricidae) and Chlorophorus (Cerambycidae) from Indian pine cones. Pine shoot beetles were discovered in five more counties in 2004. The majority of Indiana's corn crop was planted and harvested earlier than usual in 2004. The western corn rootworm beetle variant pushed its way southward during 2004; and, as a result, for the first time poses moderate risk to first year corn in central and south Indiana counties in 2005. Generally, reports of fruit and vegetable-damaging insects were slightly lower than normal in 2004. Apple pests, including codling moth and spotted tentiform leafminer, were conspicuously absent throughou

13 A Roadmap to the Successful Development and Commercialization of Microbial Pest Control Products for Control of Arthropods - Willem J. Ravensberg
Auteur : Willem J. Ravensberg
Genre : Agriculture
Biocontrol is among the most promising methods for a safe, environmentally benign and sustainable crop protection. Microbial pesticides offer a great potential, and it is anticipated that they will become a substantial part of the use of all crop protection products. Their development and commercialization, however, has been difficult and with many failures.

For the first time, a rational and structured roadmap has been designed for the development and commercialization of microbial pest control products, based on entomopathogenic bacteria, fungi, viruses and nematodes, for the control of arthropod pests. The emphasis lies on strain screening, product development, up to successful commercialization, from a bio-industry’s viewpoint.

The building blocks of the entire process are identified. The selection criteria for a microbial pest control agent are defined as w

16 Arthropods as Vectors of Emerging Diseases - Heinz Mehlhorn
Auteur : Heinz Mehlhorn
Genre : Science de la vie
Without a doubt the recently accelerating globalization supports the import of agents of disease into countries where they never had been or where they had long since been eradicated, leading to a false sense of living on a “safe island.” These newly imported or reintroduced diseases – called “emerging diseases” – may lead to severe outbreaks in cases where the countries are not prepared to combat them, or in cases where viruses are introduced that cannot be controlled by medications or vaccines.

 Arthropods are well known vectors for the spread of diseases. Thus their invasion from foreign countries and their spreading close to human dwellings must be blocked everywhere (in donor and receptor countries) using safe and effective measures.

 This book presents reviews on examples of such arthropod-borne emerging diseases that lurk o

Genre : Science de la vie
Emphasis is placed on the elaborate cuticular matrices in insects and crustaceans, spider and insect silks, sialomes of phytophagous and blood-feeding arthropods as well as on secretions of male and female accessory glands. Focus is placed largely on insects, due to the extensive body of published research that in part is the result of available whole genome sequences of several model species (in particular Drosophila melanogaster) and accessible ESTs for other species. Such advances have facilitated fundamental insights into genomic, proteomic and molecular biology-based physiology. This new volume contains comprehensive contributions on extracellular composite matrices in arthropods. The building blocks of such matrices are formed in and secreted by single layered epithelial cells into exterior domains where their final assembly takes place.Additionally, the unique mechanical prop

18 Red Imported Fire Ant Impacts on Upland Arthropods in Southern Mississippi (Report) - The American Midland Naturalist
Auteur : The American Midland Naturalist
Genre : Science de la vie
INTRODUCTION The invasion of non-native species into new habitats has been aided by anthropogenic transformation of land cover and land use, as well as the increasing extent and volume of global trade (Hobbs, 2000). Introductions of new species may be deliberate or accidental (McNeely, 2000), but regardless of the introduction mechanism, non-native species often have negative impacts on native biota and economic and ecological systems. Introduced species may outcompete or prey on native species, resulting in disruption to ecological communities and processes (Jenkins, 1996). Generalist invasive species may become ecological dominants, leading to trophic simplification (Vinson, 1994). In addition to ecological costs, economic costs associated with non-indigenous species are considerable. Pimentel et al. (2001), for example, estimated that the economic costs of non-indigenous species for t

25 Skin and Arthropod Vectors - Nathalie Boulanger
Auteur : Nathalie Boulanger
Genre : Science de la vie
Recent research on skin immunity and the skin microbiome reveals the complexity of the skin and its importance in the development of immunity against arthropod-borne diseases. In diseases such as malaria, borreliosis, leishmaniasis, trypanosomiasis, etc., the skin interface has been shown as an essential site for pathogens to hide from the immune system, and as a potential site of persistence. Only very few vaccines have been successfully developed so far against these diseases, likely because of an insufficient understanding on the development of skin immunity against pathogens. Skin and Arthropod Vectors expands our knowledge on the role of the skin interface during the transmission of arthropod-borne diseases and particularly its immunity. This work may support researchers who strive for developing more efficient diagnostic tools and vaccines. It also gives scientists and advan

26 Arthropod Diversity and Conservation - David L. Hawksworth & Alan T. Bull
Auteur : David L. Hawksworth & Alan T. Bull
Genre : Science de la vie
Despite their enormous bulk and complexity of architecture, plants make up only around a quarter of a million of the 8 million or so species on Earth. The major components of biodiversity, instead, are the smaller, largely unseen, silent majority of invertebrates – most of which are arthropods. Vertebrates, a mere blip on the biotic horizon, are elevated in importance in the bigger scheme of things only by the human psyche.

This collection of more than 30 peer-reviewed papers focuses on the diversity and conservation of arthropods, whose species inhabit virtually every recess and plane – and feature somewhere in virtually every food web – on the planet. Highlighting issues ranging from large-scale disturbance to local management, and from spatial heterogeneity to temporal patterns, these papers reflect some of the most exciting new research taking place today – and i

Arthropods are invertebrates that constitute over 90% of the animal kingdom, and their bio-ecology is closely linked with global functioning and survival.

Arthropods play an important role in maintaining the health of ecosystems, provide livelihoods and nutrition to human communities, and are important indicators of environmental change. Yet the population trends of several arthropods species show them to be in decline. Arthropods constitute a dominant group with 1.2 million species influencing earth’s biodiversity. Among arthropods, insects are predominant, with ca. 1 million species and having evolved some 350 million years ago. Arthropods are closely associated with living and non-living entities alike, making the ecosystem services they provide crucially important.

41 Bugs Up Close - Lars-Åke Janzon & John Hallmén
Auteur : Lars-Åke Janzon & John Hallmén
Genre : Nature
Bugs are usually so small that we hardly notice them, let alone think of them as living beings. But call upon the magnifying glass, and a shapeless jumble of legs, wings, and antennae suddenly start staring back at us.

About 80 percent of the Earth’s animals are insects. While there are millions of different species, we rarely see many of them . . . until now. Thanks to the photography of John Hallmén, who took a camera and magnified these magnificent creatures one hundred times, we can see what we’ve never been able to see before.

Bugs Up Close takes readers on a journey into a world rarely seen, with incredible photographs of such insects as:

Yellow meadow ants
Black fungus beetles
Treehoppers
