The application of X-ray spectrometry to analysis of elemental composition (chemoprinting) in the study of migration of Noctua pronuba L



The application of X-ray spectrometry to analysis of elemental composition (chemoprinting) in the study of migration of Noctua pronuba L



Ecological Entomology, 43: 199-204



Wavelength dispersive X-ray fluorescence spectrometry was used to make quantitative determinations of the elemental composition (chemoprints) of individuals and of bulked males and females of N. pronuba. Females caught in light traps at Rothamsted [Harpenden, Herts., Engl., UK] on 2 successive nights in Aug. 1978 could be separated by significant differences in content of 5 elements, S, K, Ca, Cu and Zn. Two females, thought on biological grounds to be immigrants, could be distinguished from other, probably resident, females trapped at the same time. Males and females were different in respect of 4 elements, S, Cl, K and Ca, three of which, S, K and Ca, were also discriminants between nightly populations of females.
