- Supine behaviour predicts the time to death in male Mediterranean fruitflies (Ceratitis capitata)Nikos T Papadopoulos
Laboratory of Applied Zoology and Parasitology, Department of Agriculture, Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Greece
Proc Biol Sci 269:1633-7. 2002....
- High sexual signalling rates of young individuals predict extended life span in male Mediterranean fruit fliesNikos T Papadopoulos
Department of Agriculture, Laboratory of Applied Zoology and Parasitology, Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, 540 06 Thessaloniki, Greece
Oecologia 138:127-34. 2004..These results support the hypothesis that intense sexual signalling indicates longer life span. We discuss the importance of age-specific behavioural studies for understanding the evolution of male life histories...
- Condition-dependent effects of mating on longevity and fecundity of female Medflies: the interplay between nutrition and age of matingStella A Papanastasiou
Department of Agriculture, Crop Production and Rural Environment, University of Thessaly, Volos, Magnisia, Greece
PLoS ONE 8:e70181. 2013..A wealth of data regarding effects of nutrition on longevity and reproduction output also exists. Nonetheless, little is known regarding the interaction between the age of mating and nutrition on female fitness...
- Reproduction is adapted to survival characteristics across geographically isolated medfly populationsHans Georg Muller
Department of Statistics, University of California at Davis, One Shields Avenue, Davis, CA 95616, USA
Proc Biol Sci 276:4409-16. 2009..Our findings are consistent with an adaptive mechanism whereby trajectories of fertility evolve in response to specific constraints inherent in the population survival schedules...
- Age structure changes and extraordinary lifespan in wild medfly populationsJames R Carey
Department of Entomology, University of California, Davis, Davis, CA 95616, USA
Aging Cell 7:426-37. 2008....
- Dual reproductive cost of aging in male Medflies: dramatic decrease in mating competitiveness and gradual reduction in mating performanceStella A Papanastasiou
Department of Agriculture, Crop Production and Rural Environment, University of Thessaly, Phytokou Street, N Ionia 384 46 Magnisias, Greece
J Insect Physiol 57:1368-74. 2011..Aging positively affected the amount of spermatozoids in testes of both mated and nonmated males. No significant differences were observed on the amount of spermatozoids between mated and nonmated males...
- Evaluation of synthetic female attractants against Ceratitis capitata (Diptera: Tephritidae) in sticky coated spheres and McPhail type trapsByron I Katsoyannos
Laboratory of Applied Zoology and Parasitology, Department of Agriculture, Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, 541 24 Thessaloniki, Greece
J Econ Entomol 97:21-6. 2004..Baited spheres were more C. capitata female selective than either wet or dry McPhail traps. The importance of these findings in developing lure and kill devices for the Mediterranean fruit fly is discussed...
- Prolonged pupal dormancy is associated with significant fitness cost for adults of Rhagoletis cerasi (Diptera: Tephritidae)Cleopatra A Moraiti
Laboratory of Entomology and Agricultural Zoology, Department of Agriculture, Crop Production and Rural Environment, University of Thessaly, Fytokou St, N Ionia Volou, Magnesia, Greece
J Insect Physiol 58:1128-35. 2012..Extension of the life cycle of some individuals in R. cerasi populations in association with prolonged dormancy is likely a bet-hedging strategy...
- Trends in lipid and protein contents during medfly aging: an harmonic path to deathDavid Nestel
Institute of Plant Protection, The Volcani Center, Beit Dagan, Israel
Arch Insect Biochem Physiol 60:130-9. 2005..Our results are discussed in view of resource allocation during reproduction and senescence...
- Behavioral trajectories as predictors in event history analysis: male calling behavior forecasts medfly longevityYing Zhang
Biostatistics Core, Cancer Center, University of Minnesota, Minneapolis, MN 55455, USA
Mech Ageing Dev 127:680-6. 2006..A high level of recent calling activity is found to be associated with increased remaining lifetime for an individual male fly, while calling activity at early ages plays no role for remaining longevity...
