Amino acids in nectar enhance butterfly fecundity: A long awaited link

.... Butterflies raised under natural, nitrogen poor larval food conditions laid more eggs when fed nectar containing amino acids. These results provide the long missing evolutionary link between costly nectar amino acid production by plants, nectar preferences of and fitness benefits to butterflies. This ar...

New project aims to make large-scale lobster farms feasible

The lobster larval growth cycle is extremely complicated and as yet reproduction and growth to adulthood has not been accomplished in captivity in reliable numbers. Development of collection methods to get enough larvae to support large-scale commercial culture has so...

Beneficial Beetles Battle Pesky Saltcedar

...happens when the insect is in its caterpillar-like larval stage or has matured into a quarter-inch-long adult beetle. Besides disrupting the natural surroundings needed by native plants, birds, fish and other forms of life, saltcedar plays havoc with farm roads and fields. For example, when rivers and stre...

University of Nevada, Reno research team discovers hormone that causes malaria mosquito to urinate

A potential solution to the problem of killing insects at any stage of development may be found in peptide hormones, small proteins in all animals that regul...

Analysis of the mutant larvae after feeding reveals disrupted somatic musculature, strongly suggesting a role for Dmir-1 in the maintenance of muscl...

Researchers find gland that tells fruit flies when to stop growing

...in, assesses the fly's size as it grows during the larval stage. The gland then sends hormonal signals when it senses the fly has reached a size appropriate to enter adulthood. The scientists found they could use the pathway that sends insulin to a fly's cells to genetically manipulate the size of the prot...

Specifically, they found that several types of neurons responsible for coordinating taste signals express the gene hugin (hug), a gene linked to abnormal eating activity and expressed in ...

Gene needed for butterfly transformation also key for insects like grasshoppers

To understand how metamorphosis evolved in insects, the UW researchers examined how the broad gene functions in direct-developing insects, which don't have a pupal stage. "We found that it is expressed throughout the nymphal stages...
