2009 Population fluctuations of light-attracted chrysomelid
beetles in relation to supra-annual environmental changes in a Bornean rainforest.
This work is the first reference of other chrysomelid
species which used the blueberry as a food resource in our country.
Distribution ofadult defense glands in chrysomelids (Coleoptera: Chrysomelidae) and its significance in the evolution of defense mechanisms within the family.
The "Agassa" species appear to be mimics of chrysomelid beetles (Coleoptera, Chrysomelidae).
Outbreaks of native insects, other than chrysomelids, may also be critical to the dynamics of a number of different community types.
Specialist chrysomelid beetles can irrupt and defoliate goldenrods (Solidago spp.
This secretion is produced autogenously and its chemical composition is very similar to secretions produced by related chrysomelids
in the tribe Chrysomelini (e.
Wasps in the genus Symmorphus specialize on larvae of Phratora and on other chrysomelid
beetles (Cumming 1989).
Other floral visitors included chrysomelids
, nymphs of hemipterans, small parasitoid wasps, and thrips (but not euglossines).
Several other studies have shown that chrysomelids
feeding on salicaceous hosts prefer trees with high leaf phenolic glycoside concentrations (Rowell-Rahier 1984, Smiley et al.
As Tetraopes belongs to the sister family of the chrysomelids
, clock artifacts attributable to lineage-specific variation in substitution rate (reviewed in, e.
Temperature, humidity, photoperiod, host and natural enemy biology, nutrition, and the availability of alternative hosts influence the potential of chrysomelids
to be mass reared in laboratory or nursery for experimental or field releases (Tauber et al.
But the genitalic descriptions of male chrysomelids
(and many other beetles) are generally limited to the hollow chitinized tube, the median lobe.
Although there appear to be no adapted aquatic herbivores in North America, emergent watercress is subject to attack by both aquatic shredders and terrestrial specialists such as pierids and chrysomelids
According to the amount of prey consumed, we established four predation levels: high (> 55%, on adult Drosophila melanogaster flies); intermediate (30% -55% on the defoliator larvae of Rachiplusia nu and adult heteropterans: Horciasinus argentinus and Halticus spegazzinii); and low (10%- 30% on the chrysomelids
