A method for crossbreeding strains of chironomid midges (Diptera: Chironomidae) and its application to ecotoxicological studies



A method for crossbreeding strains of chironomid midges (Diptera: Chironomidae) and its application to ecotoxicological studies



Proceedings of the Section Experimental and Applied Entomology of the Netherlands Entomological Society 9: 211-216



A newly developed technique for crossbreeding populations of Chironomus riparius is presented. This technique is suitable in genetic and ecotoxicological studies, when crossbreeding of different strains of a midge species is necessary. No indications of parthenogenesis in C. riparius could be detected.
