The reproductive behaviors and mating systems of the fruit-infesting species of the Dacinae tribes Ceratitidini and Dacini are increasingly well understood, while in the non-frugivorous tribe Gastrozonini, data are lacking. In the present study, the reproductive behavior of Anoplomus rufipes from North Thailand was studied in the field, other behaviors also in the :// The Physiology of Insect Reproduction provides a comprehensive coverage of insect reproductive system.

About this book. Reproductive Biology of Teleost Fishes is the first integrated review of the reproductive biology of the bony fishes, which are the most species-rich and diversified group of vertebrates. Teleosts display remarkable variation in their modes of reproduction, and Reproductive Biology of Teleost Fishes is intended to provide a framework for understanding the remarkable This banner text can have markup.. web; books; video; audio; software; images; Toggle navigation

Reproductive behaviour - Reproductive behaviour - Insects: One puzzling aspect about the courtship behaviour of insects is its sporadic nature. Most insects should exhibit behaviour involving approach, identification, and copulation. Yet, whereas male fruit flies (Drosophila) often have elaborate displays preceding copulation, male houseflies and blowflies (Musca) simply fly at any object of In this book, contributors focus on the reproductive behaviour of insects.

The topics they discuss range from mate finding, host selection and oviposition behaviour to the competition for resources and the behaviour of feeding larvae.

Reflecting a diversity of approach and differing degrees of conviction as to the relevance of evolutionary theory, the book discusses such topics as mate finding, host selection and the behaviour of feeding :// The book contains 11 chapters by various authors covering individual perspectives on insect reproductive behaviour, the evolution of insect mating systems (the impact of individual selectionist thinking), mate finding (selection on sensory cues), host location and oviposition on animals, host location and oviposition on plants, host location and oviposition in tephritid fruit flies, host Reproductive Behaviour of Insects: Individuals and Populations by Bailey, W.j.; Ridsdill-smith, J.
