  1. 1. The Evolution of Sexually Homologous Ornaments Selection via Male Mate Choice Coinciding with Male-Male Competition in a Neotropical Mosquito

    Detta är en avhandling från Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Författare :Sandra South; Uppsala universitet.; [2011]
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; sexual selection; Sabethes cyaneus; Diptera; Culicidae; mosquito; mutual ornamentation; sexual selection; mutual mate choice; male mate choice; female ornament; ecology; animal behaviour; NATURAL SCIENCES Biology Terrestrial; freshwater and marine ecology Ethology and behavioural ecology; NATURVETENSKAP Biologi Terrestrisk; limnisk och marin ekologi Etologi och beteendeekologi; Zooekologi; Animal Ecology;

    Sammanfattning : The evolution of elaborate male ornaments via sexual selection is well-understood while the selective pressures acting on female ornaments remains unresolved. Female ornaments in species with strong sexual selection on the male homologue of the ornament were originally thought to result from an intersexual genetic correlation. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Mosquitoes as a Part of Wetland Biodiversity

    Detta är en avhandling från Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Författare :Martina Schäfer; Uppsala universitet.; [2004]
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Ecology; diversity patterns; species assemblages; functional groups; constructed wetlands; dytiscids; Ekologi; NATURAL SCIENCES Biology Terrestrial; freshwater and marine ecology; NATURVETENSKAP Biologi Terrestisk; limnisk och marin ekologi;

    Sammanfattning : Wetlands contain both aquatic and terrestrial environments which generates high biodiversity. However, they are commonly associated with mosquitoes (Diptera: Culicidae), and mosquitoes are usually regarded as negative by humans because they can cause nuisance and transmit diseases. LÄS MER

    Sammanfattning : Haematophagous parasites and disease vectors such as leeches, ticks, mites, lice, bed bugs, mosquitoes, and myiasis-causing fly larvae are common health problems in Lao Peoples Democratic Republic (Lao PDR). A main aim of my field work in Lao PDR in 2006-2010 was to document traditional knowledge among different ethnic groups about plants that people use to repel or to kill blood-feeding invertebrates.
