A Study on the Functional Responses of Gambusia affinis to Aedes albopictus Skuse

Benguang Zhang, Lijuan Liu*

In this study, the predation of Gambusia affinis (Baird et Girard) to Aedes albopictus Skuse was studied in a laboratory. The results show that the functional response of G. affinis to Ae. albopictus qualifies as Holling’s type III. The model parameters for this group were estimated as follows: the search rate (a) of G. affinis (female and male) to Ae. albopictus were 0.0524, 0.0656. The experimental data can be described using Hassell’s equation and Wang Shize’s equation.

Selective Oviposition of a Natural Population of Drosophila ananassae

Emilio Pimentel* and M. Patricia Cruces

An important and complex adaptive behavior that influences the speciation potential of the populations is the selection of the most suitable site for oviposition. However, the mechanisms underlying this process remain as a subject of matter. In the present study, the male influence on the selection for oviposition site was evaluated in a natural population of Drosophila ananassae from Laguna Verde, Veracruz, Mexico.

Scientists, Beware of the Predatory Ant Lion, Retraction Watch

Jaime A. Teixeira da Silva*

The ant lion (Myrmeleon sp.) is a fascinating insect, not so much the adult stage, but rather the young larval stage. Though small, the vicious nature of its predatory behavior, entrapping its prey, often making escape impossible by showering them with sand, the ant lion is a formidable predator. Once the prey’s carcass has been tossed aside, or left to dry, the ant lion then awaits its next unsuspecting prey to fall, first into its pit, and then into its mandibles.
