Arkansas Butterflies and Moths by Lori A. Spencer, Don R. Simons

By Lori A. Spencer, Don R. Simons

Книга включает 263 видовых описания и более three hundred цветных фотографий, в том числе и для гусениц. Для каждого вида обсуждаются вопросы жизненного цикла, анатомии, поведения. Карты показывают районы и точки, где встречаются данные виды. Книга снабжена тремя алфавитными указателями по обычным и научным названиям, а также кормовым растениям гусениц.

What Good Are Bugs?: Insects in the Web of Life

We shriek approximately them, slap and spray them, and usually reflect on bugs (when we predict of them in any respect) as pests. but, if all bugs, or perhaps a severe few, have been to disappear--if there have been none to pollinate vegetation, function nutrients for different animals, cast off useless organisms, and practice different ecologically crucial tasks--virtually the entire ecosystems on the earth, the webs of existence, might get to the bottom of.

Sample text

One teaspoon of garden soil contains thousands of species, millions of individuals, and a hundred meters of fungal networks. Bacterial biomass is particularly impressive and can amount to 1–2 t/ha which is roughly equivalent to the weight of one or two cows. Thus, for the soil biologists, soil is a living organism in an organic/mineral matrix. Soil biologists take two basic approaches for studying organisms: (i) taxonomic and (ii) process oriented (Bardgett et al. 2005; Gardi and Jeffrey 2009).

This is because the size of organisms strongly determines their spatial aggregation patterns and dispersal distances. Thus, chemical engineers are typically influenced by local-scale factors, ranging from micrometers to meters and shortterm processes, ranging from seconds to minutes (Brussaard et al. 2007). 4 Factors Influencing Soil Biodiversity The activity and diversity of soil organisms are regulated by a hierarchy of abiotic and biotic factors. The main abiotic factors are climate, including temperature and moisture, soil texture and soil structure, and salinity and pH.

The large tower like castings of Eutypheous woltoni had coarser fractions than the surrounding soil. Small-sized castings were found in the same region and were superior to large castings and also the parent soil in their rate of percolation and dispersion 2 Soil Biodiversity and Arthropods: Role in Soil Fertility 27 coefficient. The aggregate size also differed in these two castings. The chemical composition of both the castings was found more favorable to plant growth than surrounding soil. The pH of the castings was found higher than the surrounding soil.
