Releaser and primer pheromones in collembola


Releaser and primer pheromones in collembola



Journal of Insect Physiology 30(8): 665-670

In Collembola [Orchesella cincta and Tomocerus minor] pheromones appear to be present in the fecal pellets. Pheromone release after cessation of feces production points to the digestive tract as a possible site of biosynthesis. During the pre-molting periods Collembola do not react to pheromones, possibly due to their low activity at that time, whereas the production of the pheromones continues. Starvation periods of up to 14 days diminish pheromone release but do not cause complete cessation. Production per animal seems to decrease at increasing densities. The effect of pheromones on the reproductive efficiency of Collembola is discussed in the context of their physiological and behavioral ecology.
