Carbon Neutral: The Failure of Dung Beetles (Coleoptera: Scarabaeidae) to Affect Dung-Generated Greenhouse Gases in the Pasture


By: F. Fowler n, S. Denning n, S. Hu n, W. Watson n & J. Schmidt

author keywords: dung beetle; tunneling; dwelling; greenhouse gas; dung decomposition
MeSH headings : Affect; Animals; Carbon Dioxide; Cattle; Coleoptera; Greenhouse Effect; Greenhouse Gases / analysis; Methane; Nitrous Oxide; Soil
TL;DR: It is suggested that dung beetle communities cannot adequately reduce GHGs unless they can accelerate dung decomposition faster than time alone. (via Semantic Scholar)

Sampling Efficacy and Survival Rates of Labarrus pseudolividus (Coleoptera: Scarabaeidae) and Onthophagus taurus (Coleoptera: Scarabaeidae) Using Flotation and Sieve-Separation Methodology


By: F. Fowler n, T. Wilcox n, S. Orr n & W. Watson n

author keywords: Scarabaeidae; survey; detection; monitoring; ecology
MeSH headings : Animals; Coleoptera / physiology; Entomology / instrumentation; Longevity; Specimen Handling / instrumentation
TL;DR: A flotation-sieving technique is developed that enables users to rapidly collect and passively sort dung beetles with less time and effort and is reviewed in comparison to other methodologies. (via Semantic Scholar)

author keywords: horn fly; repellent; fecundity; fitness; sublethal effects
MeSH headings : Acyclic Monoterpenes; Animals; Blood; California; Cattle; Cattle Diseases / parasitology; Fatty Acids; Feeding Behavior; Female; Insect Control; Insect Repellents; Male; Muscidae; Myiasis / parasitology; Myiasis / prevention & control; Myiasis / veterinary; Reproduction; Terpenes

2017 journal article

Survival of the House Fly (Diptera: Muscidae) on Truvia and Other Sweeteners


By: M. Fisher*, F. Fowler n, S. Denning n & D. Watson n

author keywords: emortality; sugar-feeding; erythritol; Truvia; Musca domestica
MeSH headings : Animals; Caloric Restriction; Choice Behavior; Erythritol / pharmacology; Female; Houseflies / drug effects; Houseflies / physiology; Insecticides / pharmacology; Male; Sucrose / metabolism; Sweetening Agents / toxicity
TL;DR: Data show that house flies may prefer high calorie options when given a choice and that house fly longevity likely increases as calorie content increases, which suggests that decreased survival rates and death could be the result of starvation rather than insecticidal activity.

Seasonality and Diapause of Musca autumnalis (Diptera: Muscidae) at its Southern Limits in North America, With Observations on Haematobia irritans (Diptera: Muscidae)


By: F. Fowler n, J. Chirico*, B. Sandelin* & B. Mullens*

author keywords: face fly; horn fly; diapause; seasonality; range
MeSH headings : Animals; California; Cattle; Diapause, Insect; Feces / parasitology; Female; Geography; Introduced Species / statistics & numerical data; Male; Muscidae / physiology; Seasons
TL;DR: Despite warm winter temperatures that would permit activity of both species, and despite relatively long winter day lengths, face flies and most horn flies still diapaused at this latitude. (via Semantic Scholar)
