Standard taxonomic references were used for insect identification (Merritt et al, 2008), and most noninsect macroinvertebrates (Pennak, 1989; Thorp and Covich, 2001).
(2010) found that only one group, collector-gatherers, showed a threshold response, but other indices such as EPT, noninsect taxa, and tolerance values conformed to linear models.
Triggering from noninsect sources occurs at very low rates; the recordings produced by false alarms are successfully rejected by the frequency analysis of its content.
The proportion of tolerant chironomids and noninsect individuals (oligochaetes) increased at degraded sites and were dominating in organically polluted sites (Masese et al.
Over decades, DDT has been associated with effects, as have countless other chemicals, on a number of noninsect biological systems, including humans (Eskenazi et al.
Although the handbook focuses on insect pests of small grains, noninsect pests, such as mites, are also covered.
religiosa may be one of many insect and noninsect species able to generate a variable and broadband defensive acoustic signal (which may be an honest warning of danger in some taxa, while a bluff in others), the spectral composition of which ensures perception by several phylogenetically disparate predators (Masters 1980).
Despite this original association with biting flies, most cases in the United States are attributed to noninsect exposures, especially tick bites and contact with infected animal tissues (2,3).
Further, the anthers selected were from the lowest portion of the staminal column, and were the least likely to contribute to natural, noninsect aided pollen deposition on the stigma, because of their geographical distance from the receptive stigma.
In cabbage looper and corn earworm cells, the scientists found that genes like those known to be involved in repair of DNA damage in noninsect organisms may be operative, say McIntosh and Grasela.
Thus, we have started to study the expression patterns of genes that regulate insect wing development in noninsect arthropods and primitive wingless insects.
Certain of the noninsect Arthropoda are important as plant pests, especially the mites, but the plant pests that represent the greatest numbers and do the greatest amount of economic damage are the true insects.
