  1. Effect of bright wing color of males on other males in Favonius taxila (Lepidoptera: Lycaenidae) with sexual dimorphism in wing color (pages 138–141)

    Article first published online: 1 MAY 2016 | DOI: 10.1111/ens.12170

    An intact bright model or a dull model of male Favonius taxila was placed in a potential territory. Invading males perform complex flights at the potential territory with a bright model, whereas they do simple flights at that with a dull model.

  2. Differences in body sizes and physiological conditions among castes in the ponerine ant Cryptopone sauteri (Hymenoptera: Formicidae) (pages 124–128)

    The present study indicates that there are no marked differences in morphological characteristics among the castes of the ant Cryptopone sauter, although differences are generally observed in poneroid ants. Our study also showed that unmated queens were observed throughout the year. We discussed possible reasons for the presence of unmated queens.

  3. Social aphids use their antennae to perceive density cue for soldier production (pages 147–151)

    Article first published online: 28 APR 2016 | DOI: 10.1111/ens.12174

    Under a high density condition, intact females produced the highest percentage of soldiers, females deprived of both antennae produced the lowest percentage of soldiers, and females deprived of one antenna exhibited an intermediate percentage of soldiers. These results indicate that Tuberaphis styraci females use their antennae to perceive soldier-inducing density cue.

  4. Effects of different secondary metabolite profiles in plant defense syndromes on specialist and generalist herbivores (pages 97–103)

    Article first published online: 28 APR 2016 | DOI: 10.1111/ens.12172

    In this study, we focused on Brassicaceae plants that have one of the most diversified secondary metabolites, glucosinolates (GSLs), as a defense against herbivores. It was observed that the Eri silkmoth's performance differed according to which defense strategy it was exposed to, but the growth rate of P. rapae did not vary against the same defense strategies. These results suggest that the diversified defense strategies of Brassicaceae species have evolved to cope with diversified herbivores.

  5. Attractiveness of baits to dung beetles in Brazilian savanna and exotic pasturelands (pages 112–123)
