A critical evaluation of the European research on use of red wood ants (Formica rufa group) for the protection of forests against harmful insects

, : A critical evaluation of the European research on use of red wood ants (Formica rufa group) for the protection of forests against harmful insects. Z. angew. Ent, 57: 2, 167-89

The paper (which presents part of a study by the European Parasite Laboratory of the U.S.D.A. Agricultural Research Service) discusses biology, useful species, breeding and colony establishment, hunting area, aphid trophobiosis (including harmful species) etc., and the effects of ants on other predators, parasites, soil insects, and 16 hymenopterous or lepidopterous species attacking Spruce, Pine, Larch and hardwoods.

Multi-attribute utility theory (MAUT) provides a way to model decisions involving trade-offs among different aspects or goals of a problem. We used MAUT to model prostate cancer patients' preferences for their own health state and we compared...

Due to their marine habitats and distinctive foraging modes, seabirds face unique challenges with respect to flying that are negotiated differently by various species. One such challenge is taking off from the water with wet plumage. This study ev...
