El reino animal comprende muchos grupos distintos,
los cuales se conocen como filos. Cada filo se divide en
varias clases. Los insectos integran una de las muchas
clases del filo Arthropoda. Este nombre significa “pie
articulado” en el griego. La clase de los insectos se
llama Insecta o Hexapoda, lo...
The purpose of this study was to determine what insect species
occurred in waste water facilities at Corvallis, Oregon, and to
correlate these species with the chemical, physical, and biological
features common to these facilities. Data collected on a routine
basis included dissolved oxygen, temperature, algal density, and
The insect fauna of a small second order intermittent stream
near Corvallis, Benton County, Oregon was studied. The species
composition was determined, attempts were made to monitor migration
to the stream, qualitative and quantitative benthos samples were
taken, emergence was sampled, the dry stream bed was examined
for forms of...
A study of the host range and distribution of ticks and chiggers
(Acari) was undertaken in two contrasting forested areas of western
Oregon. Acarines were sampled from host mammals which were
trapped along line transects laid out in both areas, each consisting of
18 stations 50 feet apart. Hosts were...
The communicative behavior of five species and subspecies of
Tropisternus Solier (Coleoptera: Hydrophilidae) was studied. These
aquatic beetles have stress and calling chirps (both sexes), a second
male calling signal (one species), a single male courtship sound
(usually), a male copulatory sound, and a female aggressive rejection
buzz (three species)....
The western cherry fruit fly, Rhagoletis indifferens
Curran, was studied to determine the suitability of the
sterile insect technique for its control. To obtain
insect material, field collection of maggots is preferred
to sifting of soil or rearing on artificial diet.
The western cherry fruit fly is strictly univoltine;
The purpose of this study was to examine various host and microclimatic influences affecting the survival and development of the flatheaded fir borer, Melanophila drummondi (Kirby) in Douglas fir, Pseudotsuga menziesii (Mirbel) Franco residues. It also expands current knowledge of the biology, bionomics, life history, ecology, and biotic potential for...
This bibliography of insect mycophagy results from a literature search on the ecology of hypogeous fungi. It is hoped that this admittedly incomplete list will provide a nucleus of references for those unfamiliar with the topic. Using the "bracket" fungi (Polyporaceae) as an example, most
of the literature can be...
