Insect Conservation: A Handbook of Approaches and Methods (Techniques in Ecology and Conservation)

With as much as 1 / 4 of all insect species heading in the direction of extinction over the following few many years, there's now a urgent have to summarize the suggestions on hand for measuring insect range which will increase powerful conservation thoughts. Insect Conservation outlines the most equipment and strategies to be had to entomologists, offering a finished synthesis to be used via graduate scholars, researchers and practicing conservationists around the globe.

A Survey of the Lepidoptera, Biogeograhy and Ecology of New Caledonia

I spent 4 months in New Caledonia in 1971 with the article of constructing a quantitative survey of the night-flying macrolepidoptera with light-traps and an overview of the Rhopalocera and microlepidoptera. This fieldwork was once financed via a central authority Grant-in-Aid for medical Investigations adminis­ tered via the Royal Society, and via a supply from the Godman Fund.

Papilio xuthus preferred prominent Phellodendron amurense plants, but eggs were laid a little bit below the height of the surrounding vegetation (Table 1). For oviposition P. machaon chose host plants with nearly the same height as the surrounding vegetation. Egg-laying took place on leaves below the height of adjacent plants. The proportion of gravel and stone differed between the habitats of P. xuthus and P. machaon: The oviposition sites of P. xuthus offered more gravel than stone unlike those of P.
