Anobiid beetle eggs consumed by a Psocid (Psocoptera: Liposcelidae)

, : Anobiid beetle eggs consumed by a Psocid (Psocoptera: Liposcelidae). Annals of the Entomological Society of America 65(3): 533-536

In laboratory tests in Mississippi Troctes (Liposcelis) bostrychophilus (Badonnel) ate eggs but not first-instar larvae of Xyletinus peltatus (Harris). At a ratio of 1 Psocid/1.25 eggs, the Psocids ate 71.7% of the beetle eggs in the absence of other food and 33.3% when other food was available. As Psocid numbers increased, the total consumption of beetle eggs increased proportionately.

Coffee yields are highest on soils derived from schists and micaschists, followed by granite and quartzite soils. They are also good on basic rocks and volcanic ash. Low yields are obtained in absence of a humiferous horizon. Coffee grown on ferri...

Fava beans <I>(Vicia faba)</I> contain dihydroxyphenylalanine (dopa), and their ingestion may increase dopamine stores. Renal dopamine regulates blood pressure and blood volume via a natriuretic effect. The objective was to determine t...
