A new study shows the dragonfly Pantala flavescens migrates as much as 8,000 miles round-trip between India and Japan. Researchers say the findings show the potential of using stable isotopes to track insect migrations.
Forensic entomologists are familiar with a variety of blow fly species and the order in which they commonly arrive to a corpse. A new study illuminates the differences among three blow fly species and what drives the timing of their arrival and how they interact.
Two researchers compile existing research and additional observations to update the list of potential host plants for the invasive spotted lanternfly, bringing the worldwide total of plants the insect will feed on to 103—of which 56 are present in North America.
A tracing technique involving a stable nitrogen isotope gives scientists a new window into the life cycle of the invasive spotted lanternfly.
