Thus the knowledge of cropland weeds as harbourages of invertebrates especially arthropod
fauna is imperative to manipulate the pests and potential pest populations in various crop systems.
Previous studies have revealed that arthropod
diversity is increased when trap crops or other plants were intercropped with, or planted in proximity to, the main economic crops or planted in circumambience of crop fields (Hokkanen, 1991; Accinelli et al., 2005; Asman, 2002; Shelton and Badenes-Perez, 2006; Song et al., 2010b).
The mean of diversity index (H') of arthropods
in canopy of the plants is medium, ranging from 1.70 to 2.25 (Figure 1).
scientists in the country [UAE] to follow up and conduct research into the life history of the arthropod
species recorded in the three volumes published so far.", but his message may also be addressed to a broader scientific community and encourages invertebrate taxonomists from other countries to follow suit.
More than 235 new species of arthropods
have been discovered in the country so far.
Glandular trichomes are plant structures that inhibit or entrap arthropods
, protecting plants against herbivores, potentially at the cost of reducing natural enemy efficacy.
Tropical forests: their richness in Coleoptera and other arthropod
populations (insects, spiders, and their relatives) are affected directly by the abiotic effects of roads, as well as indirectly, through road-associated changes in vegetation.
This new research clarified the main sub-group of arthropods
to which it belonged, after decades of the mystery remaining unsolved.
In each of these sections a transect was delimited, where six traps were installed for soil arthropod
sampling in the dry season of 2010.
