  Mountain Pine Beetle, Dendroctonus ponderosae Hopkins. This is a very destructive bark beetle. It is 4 to mm long, robust, and dark brown to black. It occurs throughout the West, and as far east as western South Dakota, combining the ranges formerly ascribed to both D. ponderosae and D. monticolae Hopkins, which are now considered to be one Today is the United Nations’ World Wildlife Day, a time to especially raise awareness about and celebrate the earth’s plants and holiday was instituted in to be commemorated on 3 March, the day of the year on which the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES) was ://   The bark beetles Orthotomicus laricis and Orthotomicus longicollis are not pests in Central Europe: Sperm morphometric in males of the paper wasp Polistes simillimus The 90 years of the Bulletin of Insectology pages Bulletin of Insectology 71 (2) PDF.

However, experimental evidence is :// While woodpeckers are widely acknowledged as efficient predators of bark beetles, their effect on population regulation relative to that of insect predators and parasitoids is considered limited for several reasons (Fayt et al., ): (1) there is a lack of synchronization between bark beetle and woodpecker generations; (2) increases in woodpecker populations in response to bark beetle   In older beetles, more abnormalities in heart rhythm, arrhythmias, were detected.

In this group of beetles, the incidence of arrhythmia and the arrhythmicity index were higher than in a group of younger beetles (Pacholska-Bogalska et al., ).

This finding suggests that the beetle heart preparations can also be used as a model in the studies Female Microrhopala may cluster over 25 eggs on a single leaf in feces-covered stacks of 2 to 4. On emerging, the larvae mine the goldenrod leaves gregariously.

Trirhabda and Ophraella lay their eggs in clumps of up to 25 respectively (H. Damman, unpublished data).

Most insect mating systems are characterized by larger reproductive investment by females than males, intense competition among males for access to females, and female discrimination between potential mates (Thornhill & Alcock, ).Although it is known that sexual activities often bear non‐negligible costs for males (Wedell et al., ; Gwynne, ), fitness consequences of   Male ground, tiger, and rove beetles may grasp the female's prothorax with their mandibles before mating, and some male blister beetles tug on the female's antennae before copulation.

The overwhelming majority of bark and ambrosia beetle species are benign decomposers. Scolytines are among the first organisms to colonize woody debris and thus play an integral role in the decomposition of biomass in forest ecosystems by hastening the introduction of microbes and other xylophagous organisms (Stokland, ).
