A DNA barcoding method for identifying and quantifying the composition of pollen species collected by European honeybees, (Hymenoptera: Apidae).

Appl Entomol Zool 2018 16;53(3):353-361. Epub 2018 May 16.

1Ecosystem Services Assessment Unit, Division of Biodiversity, Institute for Agro-Environmental Sciences, National Agriculture and Food Research Organization, 3-1-3 Kannondai, Tsukuba, Ibaraki 305-8604 Japan.

The European honeybee, L. (Hymenoptera: Apidae), is the most important crop pollinator, and there is an urgent need for a sustained supply of honeybee colonies. Understanding the availability of pollen resources around apiaries throughout the brood-rearing season is crucial to increasing the number of colonies. Read More

Identification and functional characterization of the sex-determining gene in the sawfly,  (Hymenoptera: Tenthredinidae).

Appl Entomol Zool 2017 3;52(3):497-509. Epub 2017 Jun 3.

Department of Integrated Biosciences, Graduate School of Frontier Sciences, The University of Tokyo, 5-1-5 Kashiwanoha, Kashiwa-shi, Chiba, 277-8562 Japan.

Sexual fate of the sawfly,  (Hymenoptera: Tenthredinidae) is determined by the complementary sex determination (CSD) mechanism as is the case in honeybees. However, to date, genes involved in sex determination have not been identified in this species. In this study, we attempted to identify orthologs of - (), (), and () from the . Read More

Invasion dynamics of Asian hornet, (Hymenoptera: Vespidae): a case study of a commune in south-west France.

Appl Entomol Zool 2017 17;52(2):221-229. Epub 2017 Mar 17.

ZEEMAN Institute: SBIDER, University of Warwick, Coventry, CV4 7AL UK.

Asian hornet, Lepeletier nests were discovered in 2007 in Andernos-les-Bains on the south-west coast of France, 3 years after the first reported sightings in France. The number of nests increased in the commune over the following 7 years, despite local authorities enacting a destruction policy. The nests existed in close proximity to one another leading to a high density of over 10 nests per square kilometre in urban areas. Read More

Illustrated key to the adult female (Diptera: Culicidae) mosquitoes of Sri Lanka.

Appl Entomol Zool 2017 28;52(1):69-77. Epub 2016 Dec 28.

Department of Parasitology, Faculty of Medicine, University of Kelaniya, Ragama, Sri Lanka.

The identification of adult female anopheline mosquitoes is an important aspect in malaria surveillance and control strategy throughout the world, and taxonomic keys are being regularly revised and updated as new information becomes available. However, the currently available key to the anophelines of Sri Lanka is of limited use, because they were published more than 25 years ago. This paper presents an illustrated key for the identification of 23 adult female mosquitoes which are currently recognized as local anopheline species in Sri Lanka. Read More

Mode of entry of a vaporized pyrethroid knockdown agent into the body of the housefly, (Diptera: Muscidae).

Appl Entomol Zool 2016 20;51(4):653-659. Epub 2016 Sep 20.

Department of Vector Ecology and Environment, Institute of Tropical Medicine (NEKKEN), Nagasaki University, Sakamoto 1-12-4, Nagasaki, 852-8523 Japan.

We investigated the mode of entry of pyrethroids into the insect body using adult housefly, L., as an insect model. The wings of adult female houseflies were removed, and empenthrin was applied topically to three different sites: the mesothoracic spiracle, the ventral mesothorax, and the dorsal mesothorax.

Effects of halolactones with strong feeding-deterrent activity on the growth and development of larvae of the lesser mealworm, (Coleoptera: Tenebrionidae).

Appl Entomol Zool 2016;51:393-401. Epub 2016 May 2.

Faculty of Biology and Environment Protection, Nicolaus Copernicus University, Lwowska 1, 87-100 Toruń, Poland.

The effects of dietary applied of β-damascone and its synthetic derivatives γ- and δ-halolactones, which show strong antifeedant activity, on the growth and development of larvae of the lesser mealworm, Panzer (Coleoptera: Tenebrionidae), were studied. Bioassays were performed in a dose-dependent manner. In the bioassays, oat flakes treated with 1. Read More

Biodiversity, ecosystem functioning, and classical biological control.

Edward W Evans

Appl Entomol Zool 2016;51:173-184. Epub 2016 Mar 14.

Department of Biology, Utah State University, Logan, UT 84322-5305 USA.

Increasing concern over worldwide loss of biodiversity has led ecologists to focus intently on how ecosystem functioning may depend on diversity. In applied entomology, there is longstanding interest in the issue, especially as regards the importance of natural enemy diversity for pest control. Here I review parallels in interest, conceptual framework, and conclusions concerning biodiversity as it affects ecosystem functioning in general and classical biological control in particular.

Entomological journals and publishing in Japan.

Appl Entomol Zool 2016;51:1-10. Epub 2016 Jan 11.

Bioproduction Research Institute, National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST), 1-1-1 Higashi, Tsukuba, 305-8566 Japan ; Department of Biological Sciences, Graduate School of Science, The University of Tokyo, Tokyo, 113-0033 Japan ; Graduate School of Life and Environmental Sciences, University of Tsukuba, Tsukuba, 305-8572 Japan.

Here I present an overview of entomological journals and publishing in Japan, thereby providing a convenient portal to the valuable scientific resources for the world's entomological researchers and scientific communities. Currently, except for several international journals published fully in English such as and , many entomological and entomology-related journals in Japan are not indexed by major scientific databases like Web of Science, and therefore they are neither conveniently recognizable nor accessible for the world's entomological communities. However, I point out that many of the contents of such journals are freely available via Japan's public platforms for electronic scientific literature, Japan Science and Technology Information Aggregator, Electronic (J-stage) or Citation Information by National Institute of Informatics (CiNii).

The effect of pre-analytical treatment on the results of stoichiometric measurements in invertebrates.

Appl Entomol Zool 2015;50(3):393-403. Epub 2015 May 26.

Institute of Environmental Sciences, Jagiellonian University, ul. Gronostajowa 7, 30-387 Kraków, Poland.

Growing interest in the application of stoichiometric approaches to community ecology has resulted in an increasing number of studies examining invertebrate body composition. Our experiments demonstrate various sources of possible error related to the use of pre-analytical procedures. We examined the effects of different preservatives (ethanol and formaldehyde) used in pitfall traps, time of preservation (2 weeks or 3 days) and drying method (vacuum drying at 50 °C and freeze-drying) on the determination of body composition in invertebrates representing taxa often used in such studies: earthworms and five species of insects (adults or larvae).
