How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more
Spiders (Araneae) form abundant and diverse assemblages in agroecosystems such as fruit orchards, and thus might have an important role as natural enemies of orchard pests. Although spiders are polyphagous and opportunistic predators in general, limited information exists on their natural prey at both species and community levels. Thus, the aim of...
Spiders form the most abundant and species-rich predatory macro-arthropod group in many orchards. However, little is known about the pest control ability of spiders in apple orchards. The aim of our study was to determine the potential significance of canopy dwelling hunting spider species in apple orchards in Szabolcs-Szatmár-Bereg county (Hungary...
Apple is grown as a long-term perennial crop and orchards provide relatively stable ecological habitats. Only a small proportion of the diverse fauna of arthropods that can inhabit the orchard ecosystem are important pests, the majority of species being minor pests, beneficial or benign. In this paper, the interacting ecosystem services provided by...
Anthocorid predatory bugs are known to be key natural enemies of pear psyllids but they often migrate into orchards too late and in too small numbers to effect timely and adequate natural regulation of pear psyllid populations. Tree and an herbaceous plant species for planting in hedgerows/windbreaks around pear orchards that are good sources of an...
Invasive ant species represent a serious threat to many ecological communities, often causing decreases in the abundance, species richness and diversity of native ants and other arthropods. The invasive garden ant, Lasius neglectus VAN LOON, BOOMSMA & ANDRÁSFALVY, 1990, is an invasive tramp species that forms dense supercolonies. We studied the eco...
The expansion process of the invasive garden ant, Lasius neglectus in Europe and Asia is described in terms of: a) local expansion through colony growing measured on four supercolonies (Seva, Debrecen, Buda Castle and Budatétény) from two distant and climatically different countries (Spain, Hungary), and b) regional expansion, using data from all p...
