Methods for evaluating effects of nutrition on larval and juvenile development are well established in this species (Pechenik et al., 2002; Pechenik and Tyrell, 2015).
Probit response on log Bt concentration of Cydia pomonella larvae reared on a diet containing maize where the responses were: (A) larval mortality Y = 2.980 + 1.27(X); (B) delayed larval development, Y = 3.789 + 1.886(X) for experiment 1 and Y = 2.840 + 1.886(X) for experiment 2; (C) larvae leaving the diet, Y = 3.595 + 0.681(X); (D) total response or response A + B + C, Y = 4.133 + 2.344(X) for experiment 1 and Y = 3.592 + 2.344(X) for experiment 2.
To measure both larval food and its pollen content, we collected food stored in 20 randomly selected brood cells per colony.

Information regarding larval stages of geoduck species generally is limited to just a few published articles (e.g., Pacific geoduck Panopea generosa (Gould, 1850) (Goodwin 1973, Goodwin et al.
For this reviewer, a major lacuna in the coverage of EEMIL is in-depth treatment of larval settlement and metamorphosis.
In the southeastern United States, larval fish abundances are monitored under the Southeast Area Monitoring and Assessment Program (SEAMAP; Stuntz et al.
pulchrus was expected to have a multivoltine life cycle, with asynchronous larval development and all larval instars present simultaneously throughout the year as exhibited by other tropical aquatic species (Jackson & Sweeney, 1995; Jacobsen, Cressa, Mathooko, & Dudgeon, 2008; Springer, 2010).

Several studies have explored the coupling between larval fish assemblages and mesoscale structures (Sanchez-Velasco et al., 2013; Apango-Figueroa et al., 2014; Contreras-Catala et al., 2015), including the use of numerical models which compare the fish larval abundance and connectivity among regions of the Gulf of California (Peguero-Icaza et al., 2008, 2011).
The climatic factors like rain and humidity positively affected the larval density.
