nematodes, protozoa, dipteran
larvae, polychaete worms, and bivalves).
A large number of dipteran
species are associated with moisture and decay at the ground level, as demonstrated by the large number of species captured.
Frontiers in Biodiversity Studies has wide range of such topics including the biodiversity of aquatic mollusks, freshwater ciliates, wild legumes, dipterans
, coastal and freshwater fishes, mangroves, phytopathogenic fungi, terrestrial heteropterans and insect communities, habitat loss, fragmentation, land use-land cover change, ecological agriculture, ecosystem services and their value to society.
Specifically, we aimed to (1) detect habitat overlap of necrophagous dipteran
species in urban areas, rainforest fragments, agricultural sites, sandy beaches, and other environments typical of the region; (2) compare the attractiveness of animal baits (chicken liver, pork, and sardine) to different species; (3) describe local assemblages of necrophagous species in terms of richness, similarity, dominance, and equity among environments; and (4) detect the presence of invasive species of Calliphoridae.
For the first model, we used cavefish, dipteran
larvae, and snails; for the second model, we used cavefish, dipteran
larvae, snails, and bacterial mats.
Gingrich & Barrett (1976) conducted laboratory infestations of P, pectoralis with the dipteran
, Cuterebra fontinella Clark.
Their distinctive appearance and relatively large size make robber flies one of the few dipteran
groups with potential for targeting by non-specialist collectors, making it possible to obtain adequate sample sizes over large geographic areas.
davidii, including the weevils Gymnaetron tetrum, Cleopus japonicus, and Mecysolobus erro, a dipteran
leaf miner (Amaroumyza verbasci) and a leaf bug (Campylomna verbasci).
First, since the homogametic sex in dipteran
insects are female, a cross of X-linked recessive beating females with wild-type males will produce F1 progeny in which females are heterozygous and phenotypically wild-type and males that are hemizygous for the mutant recessive phenotype.
The positive relationship seems most likely to be a similar response by both species to the substrate or to small dipteran
The EPT/chironomid metric is calculated as a ratio of the aquatic insect larval groups Ephemeroptera, Plecoptera, and Trichoptera (indicators of good water quality), and the dipteran
larvae of the family Chironomidae (indicators of poor water quality).
The following 17 Dipteran
families were recorded for both sites: Tabanidae, Stratiomyidae, Asilidae, Culicidae, Mycetophilidae, Tachinidae, Muscidae, Tipulidae, Anthomyiidae, Bombyliidae, Tanypezidae, Syrphidae, Sciaridae, Pipunculidae, Chironomidae, Dolichopodidae, and Conopidae.
