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


, : Polymorphic development in relation to the life history of Melanoplus femurrubrum (Orthoptera: Acrididae). Annals of the Entomological Society of America, 822: 166-171

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.

Both species are mixed feeders which prefer forbs over grasses. Both species ingested a wide range...
