Chemical stimuli and species recognition in Liolaemus lizards
Species-specific recognition systems are fundamental to maintaining the cohesion of species, particularly when heterospecific matings are possible. Here, I examined whether species recognition may facilitate species isolation ...
SUPERVISED PATTERN RECOGNITION TECHNIQUES FOR CLASSIFICATION OF EUCALYPTUS SPECIES FROM LEAVES NIR SPECTRA
(Sociedad Chilena de Química, 2008)
Automatic classification of fish germ cells through optimum-path forest
The spermatogenesis is crucial to the species reproduction, and its monitoring may shed light over some important information of such process. Thus, the germ cells quantification can provide useful tools to improve the ...
Kin recognition in the largely solitary bee, manuelia postica (Apidae: Xylocopinae)
The recognition of conspecifics is a central issue to social behaviour. In eusocial hymenopterans, kin recognition has been clearly demonstrated. Manuelia postica is a largely solitary bee species in which larvae develop ...
The Cuticular Hydrocarbons Profiles in the Colonial Recognition of the Neotropical Eusocial Wasp, Mischocyttarus cassununga (Hymenoptera: Vespidae)
(Univ Estadual Feira Santana, 2015-03-01)
Cuticular hydrocarbons are chemical messengers with fundamental role in information transfer on the nestmate recognition, physical or behavioral caste, age, task specialization and reproductive status among individuals of ...
Eavesdropping in plants: delayed germination via biochemical recognition
Allelopathy has traditionally been viewed as a phytotoxic disruption of recipient plant metabolism, and allelopathic effects are generally strongest on species lacking historic exposure to particular phytotoxins (Novel ...
Sex-pairing pheromones and reproductive isolation in three sympatric Cornitermes species (Isoptera, Termitidae, Syntermitinae)
(PERGAMON-ELSEVIER SCIENCE LTD, 2011)
The species-specificity of pairing has been studied in three sympatric Neotropical termites: Cornitermes bequaerti, Cornitermes cumulans and Cornitermes silvestrii (Termitidae, Syntermitinae). Bioassays showed that sex ...
