Polymorphic development in relation to the life history of Melanoplus femurrubrum (Orthoptera: Acrididae)


Annals of the Entomological Society of America, 822: 166-171
Polymorphic development in relation to the life history of Melanoplus femurrubrum (Orthoptera: Acrididae)
The effects of polymorphic development on the life history of Melanoplus femurrubrum were investigated. In a population reared from field-collected eggs, the development threshold for 6- and 7-instar groups was the same (17.1 degrees C). Most mortality occurred in the 1st instar. Development times of males and females in the same instar group were not different.
