1. Warmer winters are associated with lower levels of the cryoprotectant glycerol, a slower decrease in vitellogenin expression and reduced virus infections in winter honeybees.

Within the context of climate change, winter temperatures at high latitudes are predicted to rise faster than summer temperatures. This phenomenon is expected to negatively affect the diapause performance and survival of insects, since they largely rely on low temperatures to lower their metabolism ...

3. The amino acids of Autographa californica multiple Nucleopolyhedrovirus P48 critical for the association with Ac93 are important for the nuclear egress of nucleocapsids and efficient formation of intranuclear microvesicles.

Autographa californica multiple nucleopolyhedrovirus (AcMNPV) undergoes a biphasic life cycle with the production of two physically and functionally distinct virions: budded virions (BVs) and occlusion-derived virions (ODVs). Nuclear egress of nucleocapsids and intranuclear microvesicle formation...

8. Host specialization is ancestral in Torymus (Hymenoptera, Chalcidoidea) cynipid gall parasitoids.

The host range of parasitoids varies greatly among species: Some only parasitize one to a few hosts (specialists), while others parasitize multiple species or a variety of host types (generalists). The direction of most host range shifts in parasitoid groups, that is from generalist to specialist...

14. Do seasonal dietary shifts by Temminck's pangolins compensate for winter resource scarcity in a semi-arid environment?

In response to food scarcity, animals may increase foraging time or shift their diet by including more profitable prey items. Aardvarks (Orycteropus afer) in the semi-arid Kalahari region of southern Africa died, apparently of starvation, because they did not shift their diet when their primary...
