A total of 12,540 ripe fruits belonging to 46 species in 25 plant families were sampled from either the trees or the ground in 6 municipalities in the state of Santa Catarina, Brazil between 2002 and 2006 to determine which fruit fly species developed on various host plants. Each fruit ...

The larvae of Cucujus c. clavipes Fabricius and C. c. puniceus Mannerheim are fully described and illustrated in detail for the first time. Based on larval and adult morphology the present recognition of two subspecies is maintained.

Because both the application of a juvenile hormone analog, methoprene, and the addition of protein to the adult diet increased the sexual success of male Caribbean fruit fly, Anastrepha suspensa (Loew) (Diptera: Tephritidae), it was hypothesized that both might also impact male nutritional status. Total content of lipid and of ...

Laboratory studies were conducted during the 2007 and 2008 dispersal seasons of the West Indian drywood termite Cryptotermes brevis (Walker), a serious urban pest of wooden structures. Attraction to light and subsequent colonization of this species were studied by observing the response of alates to lit and dark chambers. Several ...

The redbay ambrosia beetle, Xyleborus glabratus Eichhoff (Coleoptera: Curculionidae: Scolytinae), is an exotic wood-boring insect that vectors laurel wilt, a lethal vascular disease of trees in the Lauraceae, including avocado (Persea americana) and native Persea species (redbay, swampbay). As part of research to identify host-based attractants for X. glabratus, we ...

Stream flow modifications, such as reduced spring flow and construction of low-head dams, have led to declines in the headwater catfish (Ictalurus lupus) across much of its range, as has competition with channel catfish (I. punctatus). Hybridization between headwater catfish and channel catfish also poses a threat to the headwater ...
Varela-Romero, Alejandro - - 2011
To appraise conservation status of the Yaqui catfish Ictalurus pricei, we reviewed literature and unpublished records on a captive stock, examined voucher specimens at museums, re-sampled historical localities in the Yaqui, Mayo, and Fuerte river basins, and we surveyed rivers further south. A total of 72 specimens of native Ictalurus ...
Pech, Louis - - 2011
We collected a Dirhinus texanus (Hymenoptera: Chalcididae) in Salt Creek Canyon, Canyonlands National Park, San Juan County, Utah. This is the first record for D. texanus in Utah.
Schwertner, T. - - 2011
In 1995, we caught three Texas antelope squirrels (Ammospermophilus interpres) at two sites near Brackettville, Kinney County, Texas. One was captured in a habitat atypical for the species. This is the easternmost record and first record of the species in Kinney county.

The occurrence and distribution of Hemidactylus frenatus (common house gecko) in Mexico is known from dozens of miscellaneous notes, regional accounts, and unpublished records in museums that span >100 years. This information is gathered here, summarized, and mapped to document current distribution of the species in Mexico. A chronology of ...

I tested effects of infection by the parasitic larval nematode Eustrongylides iggnotus on reproduction in the livebearing western mosquitofish Gambusia affinis. Generally, parasitized females had fewer developing broods than nonparasitized females. Parasitic nematodes significantly reduced fecundity in the western mosquitofish.

Pleistocene and Holocene fossils of the yellow-nosed cotton rat (Sigmodon ochrognathuss) in New Mexico, Trans-Pecos Texas, and southern Chihuahua indicate past presence within the currently occupied geographic range, as well as occurrences at lower-elevation sites. Suggestions that post-Pleistocene colonization may account for occurrence of northern isolated populations cannot be falsified ...

We describe the migratory pattern of black terns (Chlidonias niger) in the Ojo de Liebre-Guerrero Negro coastal-lagoon complex and Guerrero Negro saltworks on the Pacific coast of Baja California Sur, Mexico. Most black terns (97% of total) were seen July-October, with 6,700 birds being the highest count per month (September). ...
Griffis-Kyle, Kerry - - 2011
We examined spatial extent of habitat that anaxyrids responded to in an arid environment. We used surveys of vocalizations and searches to identify toads after rainfall events to examine whether the spatial arrangement and proximity of earthen tanks could influence breeding populations of Anaxyrus cognatus and A. debilis. These species ...
