CERAMBYCID RESEARCH   http://cerambycids.com/

The longhorned wood boring beetles (Insecta: Coleoptera: Cerambycidae) are a diverse and economically important group of insects. With an estimated 4,000 genera and 35,000 described species, the Cerambycidae comprise one of the largest beetle families (Lawrence 1991). Cerambycid beetles are found on all continents except Antarctica, from sea level to montane sites as high as 4000 m (Monné & Bezark 2011). Nearly all are phytophagous or xylophagous as larvae, feeding within living, moribund, or decaying wood. Cerambycids are among the most serious wood boring pest species globally, affecting many agricultural crops, ornamental trees, and lumber products, and causing millions of dollars in damage each year (Solomon 1995).

The family Cerambycidae is a charismatic group that has been popular with insect collectors for centuries. Cerambycid beetles exhibit a remarkable diversity of biology and morphology, and range in size from a few mm to over 17 cm. Many species are nocturnal and cryptically colored; others are diurnal and exhibit spectacular mimicry of hymenopteran forms (e.g., bees, wasps, and ants) and behavior. Cerambycid beetles have been associated with a wide variety of plant hosts, including grasses, bamboo, conifers, hardwoods, and cacti. In addition, cerambycid beetle larvae are known to utilize nearly all parts of a host tree, including the roots, trunk, branches, leaves, and seeds. Despite their economic importance and biological diversity, relatively little is known of cerambycid beetle ecology, behavior, or phylogenetic relationships. A better understanding of all of these factors would greatly contribute to conservation of endangered species, and in managing invasive species that could become pests in their new countries and habitats.

Sobre los cerambícidos xilófagos presentes en encinares y alcornocales de la provincia de Huelva. Se consideran como principales especies perforadoras Cerambyx welensii y Prinobius germari. Destacan las diferencias de comportamiento encontradas entre ellas: la primera especie se muestra poco territorial y muy móvil, la segunda parece mostrar un comportamiento territorial y sedentario, al menos en lo que machos se refiere. Tras el análisis de diversas opciones para el control de poblaciones de insectos con hábitos semejantes, se propone una estrategia de Control Integrado que tenga como uno de sus pilares la atracción de estas especies para su captura, la repelencia o la confusión específica; es decir, el estudio aplicado de los compuestos semioquímicos.

Dear Mr. Ilya Maclean,

My name's Pierfrancesco Micheloni, I'm an Italian ornithologist.
From 1995 I have used to study swallows in Africa main in Nigeria,
Central Africa Republic and Cameroon.
I'm very interested about barn swallows wintering.

In Ebbaken-Boje, south-east of Nigeria there is one of the biggest
winter swallow roost. Like you know each european population are well
fixed in their winter ground. From my site thanks the 9 years ringing
programme I can assure you that a big part of the traditional
population is still using the area (Swallows come from: east France,
west Germany, north-west of Italy, Switzerland, Belgium and the
Netherland).(no a single UK swallow winter in Boje, but at the
traditional roost in south Africa swallows carrying UK rings are very
common)

I not sure that the swallows are wintering in Spain are UK population
since they use to spend the winter in South Africa !
I suppose they are short migrants swallows , this means central-south
spanish swallows (?!).

Of Course this is very interesting, could be important to know more
about moult, some southern population start to moult their primary
feathers in their breeding ground, somebody said that could be a new
developing for to try to do what they do in Africa, but I not sure
for the north population.

If you think interesting, don't esitate to contact me.

My Regards Pierfrancesco.

MONARCH BUTTERFLY FUND


Conserving the migration


http://www.monarchbutterflyfund.org/?q=es/node/258


 


Cada otoño la mariposa monarca viaja miles de kilómetros para pasar el invierno en las cimas boscosas de 12 montañas del centro de México. No hay otro insecto que migre distancias tan
grandes. Sin embargo, la deforestación en México de su refugio invernal esta poniéndo en peligro su sorprendente migración.
En el MBF enfrentamos el reto de preservar a la mariposa monarca y su espectacular migración, por medio de nuestra estrategia de conservación la cual promueve ecosistemas saludables y
comunidades sustentables a través de..

Nabokov révolutionne l'étude des papillons


http://www.actualitte.com/actualite/24002-nabokov-papillon-chasse-etude-migration.htm


Nabokov était un grand chasseur et collectionneur de papillons. Ses efforts pour classer et ranger les lépidoptères collectés pouvaient l'occuper plus de six heures par jour. Au point d'en
développer une théorie sur la migration d'un groupe, qui avait donné lieu à une certaine controverse.




Le papillon de Nabokov



L'un d'eux avait particulièrement attiré son attention, le Polyommatus coridon, dit Argus bleu-nacré. Selon Nabokov, la migration de ces insectes s'était faite en cinq vagues depuis la Sibérie,
en passant par le détroit de Bering, puis vers l'Alaska, avant d'arriver au Chili.

Une théorie qui avait fait l'objet d'un article signé en 1945 par le romancier, mais que la communauté scientifique regardait alors avec un certain doute. Depuis sa mort en 1977, Nabokov a
cependant inspiré des experts en papillonnage, qui sont partis dans les Andes, pour recueillir des spécimens du Polyommatus.

Grâce à des technologies bien plus avancées que celles dont disposait l'écrivain, ces scientifiques ont pu établir le séquençage ADN du papillon... pour en conclure que Nabokov avait raison.
Selon leurs conclusions, le détroit de Béring a bel et bien servi de couloir biologique permettant à cette espèce de migrer d'Asie vers le Nouveau-Monde, saluant ainsi « l'extraordinaire
intuition biologique » de Nabokov.

Ils ont publié leurs études dans les Actes de la Royal
Society of London.

Naomi Pierce, conservatrice de la section Lepidotères au Harvard Museum of Comparative Zoology insiste sur la véritable fulgurance de Nabokov, tout en rendant hommage à la rigueur scientifique de
l'écrivain. « Il est très précis », souligne-t-elle. « Il sentait que son travail scientifique était là pour longtemps et qu'il n'était juste qu'un acteur de plus dans une entreprise
scientifique beaucoup plus vaste. » (Via Le New York Times)
