Larval dispersal in Chrysomya megacephala, Chrysomya putoria and Cochliomyia macellaria (Dipt., Calliphoridae): Ecological implications of aggregation behaviour
In this study we investigate aggregated patterns as a consequence of post-feeding larval dispersal in three blowfly species, based on the frequency distribution of sampling units in the substrate having 0, 1, 2,..., n ...
Larval predation by Chrysomya albiceps on Cochliomyia macellaria, Chrysomya megacephala and Chrysomya putoria
Chrysomya albiceps, the larvae of which are facultative predators of larvae of other dipteran species, has been introduced to the Americas over recent years along with other Old World species of blowflies, including Chrysomya ...
The spatial dynamics of native and introduced blowflies (Dipt., Calliphoridae)
The spatial dynamics of three blowfly species was investigated using a spatially extended model of density-dependent population growth and the results indicate an overall stabilizing effect. Introduction of diffusive ...
Stochastic dynamics of Musca domestica (Diptera: Muscidae) and Chrysomya putoria (Diptera: Calliphoridae)
(Medwell Online, 2009-03-01)
We analysed the stochastic dynamics of Musca domestica L. (Muscidae) and Chrysomya putoria (Wiedemann) (Calliphoridae), 2 important dipteran species that are pests of poultry housing. The study, is an attempt to examine ...
Intraguild predation influences oviposition behavior of blow flies (Diptera: Calliphoridae)
The objective of the present study was to determine whether blow flies (Diptera: Calliphoridae) are able to identify larvae of an intraguild predator species in the substrate and avoid laying eggs there. Blow flies oviposited ...
