Nutrient content of four rosaceous hosts and their effects on development and fecundity of the eastern tent caterpillar, Malacosoma americanum (Fab.) (Lepidoptera: Lasiocampidae)

, : Nutrient content of four rosaceous hosts and their effects on development and fecundity of the eastern tent caterpillar, Malacosoma americanum (Fab.) (Lepidoptera: Lasiocampidae). Canadian Journal of Zoology 61(12): 2868-2872

Larvae of Malacosoma americanum (F.) that were reared in the laboratory in the USA on crab apple (Malus sp.), apple, black cherry (Prunus serotina) and pin cherry (P. pensylvanica) differed in development time and survival. Fecundity and pupal weight were also affected. No direct relationship was found between nutrient levels (nitrogen, carbohydrate and fatty acid) in host-plant foliage and developmental parameters.

Seven subjects underwent a standard localized exercise of calf muscles in order to investigate whether the metabolic exercise-induced steady-state, as revealed by the evaluation of inorganic phosphate/phosphocreatine ratio, depends on the conditio...

The results are given of 6 experiments comparing mushroom yields from beds prepared with horse manure, pig manure or synthetic compost. In the early experiments the yield from beds prepared from pig manure was not as good as that from the other be...

Cows were judged to be pregnant if, 20 to 21 days after artificial insemination, the plasma progesterone exceeded 1.5 ng/ml. The validity of diagnosis from this test depended on insemination being carried out at true oestrus. Induction of oestrus...

The nuclear membrane is the main barrier to nonviral gene delivery. Thus, in the case of nondividing cells, a device for nuclear delivery of exogeneous DNA is necessary. In addition, to precisely evaluate the efficacy of various plasmid modificati...
