1. Flupyradifurone reduces nectar consumption and foraging but does not alter honey bee recruitment dancing.

Foraging is essential for honey bee colony fitness and is enhanced by the waggle dance, a recruitment behavior in which bees can communicate food location and quality. We tested if the consumption of nectar (sucrose solution) with a field-realistic concentration of 4 ppm flupyradifurone (FPF) could ...

2. Locomotion activity and its effects on the survival of Amblyomma sculptum (Acari: Ixodidae) nymphs under laboratory conditions.

The active locomotion of ticks is directly associated with the epidemiology of tick-borne diseases, as it has important implications for the interaction of ticks with their hosts and their dispersion in the environment. In an attempt to elucidate the factors involved in the dispersion of Amblyomma...

3. Northern gannets (Morus bassanus) are strongly affected by operating offshore wind farms during the breeding season.

Northern gannets (Morus bassanus) have been ranked as one of the most vulnerable species in terms of collision with offshore wind farm (OWF) turbines, and strong avoidance of OWFs has been documented for this species. Gannets increasingly encounter OWFs within the ranges of their largest breeding...

4. Water and suspended sediment runoff from vineyard watersheds affecting the behavior and physiology of zebrafish.

Viticulture plays an important role in generating income for small farms globally. Historically, vineyards use large quantities of phytosanitary products, such as Bordeaux mixture [Ca(OH)2 + CuSO4], to control plant diseases. These products result in the accumulation of copper (Cu) in the soil and...

5. DNA meta-barcoding revealed that sika deer foraging strategies vary with season in a forest with degraded understory vegetation.

Overbrowsing by the explosively increasing deer has a huge impact on forest vegetation in the temperate zone. Although it was expected that, over the years, the decline of forest floor vegetation would lead to a decrease in deer population, such a decline has not been observed. A dietary analysis...
