Effects of some environmental factors on the pupal development of Plocaederus obesus (Gahan) (Coleoptera: Cerambycidae)






Journal of Bengal Natural History Society 6(1): 39-48

Effects of some environmental factors on the pupal development of Plocaederus obesus (Gahan) (Coleoptera: Cerambycidae)

The effects of relative humidity, moisture and light on pupal development and survival of Plocaederus obesus were studied in forests and timber depots in West Bengal and Bihar, India, in 1982-84, and in the laboratory. Both development and pupal survival were higher at high relative humidity, high moisture content and in the dark.
