100 caterpillars : portraits from the tropical forests of Costa Rica by Jeffrey C Miller ( Book )
6 editions published between 2006 and 2009 in English and held by 363 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Gathered by biologists Daniel Janzen, Winifred Hallwachs, and Jeffrey Miller in the tropical dry forests, cloud forests, and rain forests of northwestern Costa Rica, over 100 large-format photographs of caterpillars document the variety of shapes, vivid colors, and cryptic markings among these species. The pictures are accompanied by capsule species accounts - revealing life histories as diverse as their forms - and images of the adult butterfly or moth. Throughout, the authors convey an intimate sense of these creatures - studied over twenty-five years - by focusing on how their features figure in their behavior and ecology, and on the beauty of nature in this life stage, as well as the nature of that beauty."--BOOK JACKET

Swollen-thorn Acacias of Central America by Daniel H Janzen ( Book )
4 editions published in 1974 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This nomenclatural, taxonomic, and ecological treatment of 11 Central American obligate ant-acacias (Acacia allenii, A. chiapensis, A. collinsii, A. cookii, A. cornigera, A. gentlei, A globulifera, A. hindsii, A. mayana, A. melaconoceras, and A. sphaerocephala) and one quasi-obligate ant-acacia (Acacia ruddiae) is based on extensive field study from 1963 to 1972 and on herbarium specimens where of use. The population boundaries of all species are mapped ad described with respect to ecological parameters. Morphological variation, details of the interaction with the ants, and acacia reproductive biology are presented for most species
Herbivores, their interactions with secondary plant metabolites by Gerald A Rosenthal ( Book )
2 editions published between 1979 and 1992 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
It has been more than ten years since the first edition of this book was published. During this time, our understanding of the interactions between plants and the animals that consume them, as mediated by secondary compounds (allelochemicals) of plants, has grown dramatically. In the Herbivores: Their Interactions with Secondary Plant Metabolites, Second Edition, only those areas of research where significant progress has been made since 1979 are included, and most of the contributing authors are new. This edition has been split into two volumes due to the vast amount of new material that has been generated on this subject. Both volumes will be of interest to evolutionary biologists, agriculturists, chemists, biochemists, physiologists, and ecologists. Volume 1, provides an exhaustive update and review of the chemical and biochemical bases for the role and function of allelochemicals in their defense against herbivores. Volume 2, scheduled for publication in April 1992, provides a current update of the research on the ecological roles and evolutionary nature of secondary plant metabolites in their interactions among plants and as protective agents against environmental stresses such as consumption by herbivores
The ecology of trees in the tropical rain forest by I. M Turner ( )
2 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Current knowledge of the ecology of tropical rain-forest trees is limited, yet a good understanding of the trees is essential to unravelling the workings of the forest itself. This book aims to summarise contemporary understanding of the ecology of tropical rain-forest trees, with particular emphasis on comparative ecology

Does a polyphagous caterpillar have the same gut microbiota when feeding on different species of food plants by Ana Sittenfeld ( )
2 editions published in 2002 in Spanish and English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
We used classical culture techniques to explore gut bacteria and changes associated with dietary change in the highly polyphagous, tropical caterpillar Automeris zugana (Saturniidae). Fifty-five third instar wild-caught sibs feeding on Annona purpurea (Annonaceae) in the Area de Conservacion Guanacaste (ACG) in northwestern Costa Rica were divided into eight groups. Each of seven groups was reared to the ultimate instar on another species of food plant normally used by A. zugana. Some pupae were also analyzed for the presence of bacteria. Aerobic bacterial cultures were obtained from all 33 caterpillar guts and the eight pupae inventoried. There was no clear pattern in species composition of cultivated bacteria among the eight diets, and each caterpillar on a given food plant carried only a small fraction of the total set of species isolated from the set of caterpillars feeding on that food plant. Taken as a whole, the larvae and pupae contained 22 species of cultivable bacteria in 12 genera. Enterobacter, present in 81.8 of the samples, was the genus most frequently isolated from the caterpillars, followed by Micrococcus and Bacillus. Bacillus thuringiensis was isolated from 30.3 of the dissected caterpillars, but found in caterpillars feeding on only half of the species of food plants.(AU)
