Indeed, both cases showing significance in the Rio Grande site are insectivores, and 90% of all animal consumers are insectivores (especially at the Chaco site, where all but one is insectivorous).
Western fence lizards are generalist insectivore predators that readily catch and eat grasshoppers (Smith 1946, Rose 1976, Stebbins 1985).
045), although the latter result was only because of the low survival of aerial insectivores (Table 5); exclusion of aerial insectivores caused foraging sites to no longer explain any residual variation in survival (F = 1.

How to diagnose hantavirus infections and detect them in rodents and insectivores.
Insects are the usual intermediate hosts for acanthocephalans (Nickol, 1985); thus, their occurrence in insectivores could be anticipated.
However, the study shows that during earlier periods at the end of the Late Pleistocene, the species that predominated during cold periods were rodents and insectivores that were well-adapted to environments with only sparse vegetation.
As recommended by Simon & Lyons (1995) and Karr & Chu (1999), metrics that related to species richness and composition (number of native, minnow, sucker, and sunfish species), indicator species (sensitive species, % tolerant species, % pioneer species), trophic function (% insectivores, % detritivores, % carnivores), reproductive function (% lithophils), abundance (CPUE), and fish condition (% DELT).
Drawn largely by the easy pickings at snags, hungry insectivores help control insect pests in the forest overall.
