Thus we undertook a series of experiments to determine the mating frequency and the hourly variations of both calling behavior and sex pheromone
titer in the sex pheromone
glands under different light intensities.
Dispersal of marked and released adults of Lobesia botrana in an isolated vineyard and the effect of synthetic sex pheromone
on moth movements.
Instead, they adapted to the new smell over time and now it is an integral part of the species-specific sex pheromone
The method for contact sex pheromone
detection was modified from Zhang et al.
The odour makes the difference: male moths attracted by sex pheromones
ignore the threat by predatory bats.
Tokyo, Japan, May 26, 2006 - (JCN) - The Forestry and Forest Products Research Institute (FFPRI) has identified the chemical structure of sex pheromone
of Staudinger (Cossus insularis), a kind of moth, in collaboration with Shin-Etsu Chemical, and succeeded in artificially synthesizing the sex pheromone
Scientists have been searching for the insect's sex pheromone
for decades but because only a small amount of the compound is emitted, and is very fragile, it has been difficult to keep in a laboratory without it degrading.
2,6-Dichlorophenol has so far been the only verified attractant sex pheromone
of the American dog tick, Dermacentor variabilis (Say), and acts to bring members of the mating pair together.
The most-overlooked part of this equation is the human sex pheromone
, which, when emitted in sufficient quantities, sends subconscious signals about strong health and physical well-being to potential partners of the opposite sex.
This was shown most dramatically with the identification of the sex pheromone
of the Asian elephant as (Z)-7-dodecen-1-yl acetate -- a compound previously identified as the sex pheromone
of the cabbage looper moth
Normally the female bollworm moth releases a sex pheromone
to attract the male moth for mating.
000 known species) and they possess a unique sexual communication system: females attract conspecific males by using a species-specific sex pheromone
citrella sex pheromone
over several weeks (Lapointe & Stelinski 2011).
They found that PBAN regulates sex pheromone
production in female moths.
Yet these caterpillars can sense, and appear to like, the adult sex pheromone
of their species, an international team reports September 4 in Nature Communications.
