Chemically based interactions and nutritional ecology of Labidus praedator in an agroecosystem adjacent to a gallery forest


, : Chemically based interactions and nutritional ecology of Labidus praedator in an agroecosystem adjacent to a gallery forest. Revista Brasileira De Zoologia: 4, 674-681

New World army ants species have an important role in structuring invertebrate communities. <i>Labidus praedator</i> (Fr. Smith, 1858) is a generalist top predator that can reduce pest densities in agroecosystems. The aim of this study was to describe behavioral attributes, diet composition and interspecific interactions of the ant <i>L. praedator</i>. We searched for army ant raids using standardized trail-walk surveys and plotted army ants raids positions on an aerial image.

The exchange of oxygen during NADP+ photoreduction by isolated pea chloroplasts was studied. It was found that NADP+ oxidation is accompanied by oxygen photoreduction preceeding at a high rate. A possibility for calculation of the ration between t...

Immune sera were prepared in rabbits against the erythrocytes of the green-winged macaw (Ara chloroptera) and the scarlet macaw (Ara macao). Each serum was absorbed with erythrocytes of the other species. Erythrocytes of the suspected hybrid were...
