Incorporation of the biological marker rubidium in gypsy moth (Lepidoptera: Lymantriidae) and its transfer to the predator Carabus nemoralis (Coleoptera: Carabidae)

, : Incorporation of the biological marker rubidium in gypsy moth (Lepidoptera: Lymantriidae) and its transfer to the predator Carabus nemoralis (Coleoptera: Carabidae). Environmental Entomology. February; 241: 46-51

Adults and 4th-instar larvae of the forest pest Lymantria dispar reared from 1st instar on diet enriched with 3 g rubidium chloride (RbCl) per litre acquired the rubidium (Rb) tag without affecting their phenology or survival. The tag was retained in 4th-instar larvae at significant concn for 5 days after removal from the Rb-enriched diet.
