New paper: Behavioural responses to potential dispersal cues in eriophyid mites

Our recent article published in Scientific Reports is available online! In this study, we investigated behavioral responses of two passively dispersing cereal-feeding eriophyoid mites: wheat curl mite (WCM, Aceria tosichella) and cereal rust mite (CRM, Abacarus hystrix) to potential dispersal cues. We found that wind was the most important cue influencing the mites’ behavior, what […]
