Evidence based insect restoration in Dutch cities
Insects play vital roles in all of our ecosystems, but insect diversity and populations are under severe pressure worldwide. Today’s challenge is to identify and successfully implement measures and management types that support  ...

Parasitoid foraging behaviour under natural conditions: Attraction distance and influence of surrounding vegetation
Parasitoid foraging in a controlled laboratory environment is well understood, but less is known about factors that influence host location behaviour under more natural conditions. Herbivore-induced plant volatiles (HIPVs) which a ...

Mosquito radar: unravelling mosquito ecology through a citizen science approach
In 2014 we launched a citizen science approach (Muggenradar, www.muggenradar.nl) with the aim to better understand the ecology of Dutch mosquitoes. Currently a follow up project on malaria mosquito's in Rwanda is carried out. The  ...

Vitamin D synthesis in insects?
The ability to synthesize vitamin D de novo under the influence of UV-B radiation is widespread in the Animal Kingdom. However, it is currently not known if insect species are able to do so. If insects are able to synthesize vitam ...

Population structure in ladybird beetles
Organisms are adapted to their local environment. This may mean that there are geographic differences in the occurrence of alleles at adaptive loci. The frequency at a particular locality of a certain adaptive allele is not only i ...

Parasitoids, Pheromones & Behaviour: The evolution of Nasonia mate-recognition
How can pheromone diversification lead to isolation and speciation within parasitoid wasps? Which pheromones are crucial for distinguishing mates from closely related species? Nasonia parasitoid wasps differ in their compositi ...

What matters more for the plant, identity of insect herbivores or of their parasitoids?
In nature, plants are attacked by multiple antagonists, from which insect herbivores are the most prominent members. Plants can recognise the identity of the insect attacker by its feeding mode and the composition on its oral secr ...

How to catch blood fed mosquitoes?
Several traps are available to trap mosquitoes and thereby monitor vectors of diseases like malaria, dengue and Zika. However, these traps do not catch blood fed mosquitoes. Blood fed mosquitoes are especially interesting because ...
