  1. 1. Oviposition cues as a tool for developing a new malaria control strategy

    Författare :Lynda Eneh; Anna-Karin Borg-Karlson; Willem Takken; KTH; []
    Nyckelord :Anopheles gambiae; Malaria; Oviposition; Volatile compounds; GC-MS; DGGE; Sorption; Fungi; Bacteria; Physicochemical parameters; Nut grass; Bermuda grass; Anopheles gambiae; Malaria; Äggläggning; Flyktiga ämnen; GC-MS; DGGE; Sorptionen; Svampar; Bakterier; Gräs; Kemi; Chemistry;

    Sammanfattning : Anopheles gambiae sensu lato mosquitoes are among the dominant malaria vectors in sub-Saharan Africa. However, not much is known about the oviposition behaviour of these species necessary for the development of malaria vector control strategies. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Context dependency of plant – animal interactions

    Författare :Malin A. E. König; Johan Ehrlén; Christer Wiklund; John Stinchcombe; Stockholms universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Anthocharis cardamines; attack intensity; Cardamine pratensis; cytotype; herbivory; larval fitness; oviposition; phenology; plant-animal interactions; plant resistance; plant tolerance; polyploidy; spatial variation; trait variation; Plant Ecology; växtekologi;

    Sammanfattning : The strength and direction of interactions between organisms vary spatially across the landscape. Traditionally, the focus has been on how trait variation affects the interactions between species. However, differences in abiotic and biotic environmental factors may also alter the distribution, phenology and behavior of the interacting species. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Searching for food in complex environments : Integrating processes at multiple spatial scales

    Författare :Thomas Alexander Verschut; Peter Hambäck; Peter Anderson; Ring Cardé; Stockholms universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Associational effects; Natal experiences; Olfaction; Oviposition; Plant Ecology; växtekologi;

    Sammanfattning : Resources are often unevenly distributed through the environment, resulting in a challenging task for insects to locate food, mates and oviposition sites. Consequently, there is an ongoing need to unravel how insects rely on behavioural and sensory traits while searching for resources in heterogeneous environments. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Temperature and the synchrony of plant-insect interactions

    Författare :Tenna Toftegaard; Johan Ehrlén; Karl Gotthard; Christer Wiklund; Annette Menzel; Stockholms universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Brassicaceae; Anthocharis cardamines; climate change; development; oviposition; phenology; species interactions; herbivory; synchrony; timing; phenotypic plasticity; local adaptation; Plant Ecology; växtekologi;

    Sammanfattning : Increasing temperatures resulting from climate change have within recent years been shown to advance phenological events in a large number of species worldwide. Species can differ in their response to increasing temperatures, and understanding the mechanisms that determine the response is therefore of great importance in order to understand and predict how a warming climate can influence both individual species, but also their interactions with each other and the environment.

  5. 5. Evolutionary and mechanistic aspects of insect host plant preference

    Författare :Alexander Schäpers; Niklas Janz; Steven Heard; Stockholms universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; host plant choice; host range; diet breadth; butterfly; oviposition; specialist; generalist; insect-plant interaction; search behavior; olfaction; decision making; evolution; parasite-host interaction; zoologisk ekologi; Animal Ecology;

    Sammanfattning : Plant feeding insects comprise about 25% of all animal species on earth and play an important role in all ecosystems. Although we understand that their association with plants is a key-factor driving the diversification in this group, we still have large gaps in our knowledge of the underlying processes of this relationship.
