Insect Sounds
Here are some insect sounds. Many of these I will have classified by family only, since I have not been able to find each of them so they can be classified. If you know what one is, or if you feel I've mis-classified one, please let me know. All are Windows wav files, and all have been edited for file size and clarity. More exacting sound collectors may contact me for larger, unedited versions of these sounds. Costa Rican Insect sounds are on the Costa Rica page, below. A Field Cricket Gryllus pennsylvanicus ) sings to me from my compost pile - he loves it in there! Examination of the wave or spectrum reveals that each chirp is actually three sound pulses! (78K) An Acridid Grasshopper keeps me company while I sit observing at Tavasci Marsh in the early morning. This guy was a small "short-horned" grasshopper, which are characterized by their short antennae and severely sloping "foreheads". He was about 3/4 inch long. (125K) Pallid-winged Grasshoppers Trimerotropis pallidipennis ) are common Summer Grasshoppers around Arizona (and almost everywhere else). They're the small, brown and tan mottled grassshopper you probably used as bluegill bait when you were a child (didn't everyone?). This is the sound of their flight - it will be familiar to you, for sure! (105K)

Entomology for Beginners
Entomology is the study of insects. This page provides some basic information on insects. First a quick look at the anatomy of adult insects. Then a short story about the metamorphosis of insects.
Insect anatomy
To learn more about the anatomy, click on the different body parts of this insect !!
Metamorphosis of insects
In their development from egg to adult, insects change in form. The different instars are not alike, which is called metamorphosis. There are two general types of metamorphosis: simple metamorphosis and complete metamorphosis.
Simple metamorphosis
In simple metamorphosis the wings develop externally during the larval stages. The larval stages, which are called nymphs, look very similar to the adult insect. There is no pupal stage. The figure shows the development from an egg via 5 larval instars to an adult bug.
Complete metamorphosis
In a complete metamorphosis the wings develop internally during the larval stages. The larval stages look quite different from the adult. Between the last larval stage and the adult stage there is a pupal stage which usually is inactive. The figure shows the development from an egg via the larval stage (caterpillar) and pupa to an adult butterfly or moth.

[To contact us] Note: Reports of Brood X cicadas are being sought from the general public. To report an emergence, please see the Cicada Links section below. What is a periodical cicada? Cicadas are flying, plant-sucking insects of the Order Hemiptera; their closest relatives are leafhoppers, treehoppers, and fulgoroids. Adult cicadas tend to be large (most are 25-50mm), with prominent wide-set eyes, short antennae, and clear wings held roof-like over the abdomen. Cicadas are probably best known for their conspicuous acoustic signals or "songs", which the males make using specialized structures called tymbals, found on the abdomen. All but a few cicada species have multiple-year life cycles, most commonly 2-8 years (de Boer and Duffels 1996). In most species, adults can be found every year because the population is not developmentally synchronized; these are often called "annual" cicada species. In contrast, the cicadas in a

What's New Graduate Students Faunal Checklists Acari Systematics ... Museum of Zoology, Division of Insects University of Michigan 1109 Geddes Avenue Ann Arbor, MI 48109-1079 The UMMZ Insect Division houses a world-class collection with over 4.5 million specimens from all over the globe. An emphasis on specific taxonomic groups has produced outstanding collections of the Acari, Orthoptera, and Odonata, and to a lesser extent, the Homoptera, Coleoptera and Lepidoptera. The aquatic groups and a significant portion of the mite collection are databased and there is an ongoing effort to make the rest of the collection digitally accessible.
The Insect Division is dedicated to studying biodiversity and maintains active collections that are continually growing. In addition to discovering and describing new species, our collections are used in a variety of evolutionary and ecological research, ranging from phylogenetics and systematics, host-parasite interactions, sexual selection, patterns of biodiversity, historical biogeography, phylogeography and speciation.
Our two curators, Barry M. OConnor and L. Lacey Knowles also advise graduate and undergraduate students. The division supports and provides a variety of opportunities for collaborative and independent student research, and offers employment opportunities for both graduate and undergraduate students. We often sponsor postdoctoral fellows and visiting scientists interested in curating and conducting research with our specimens as well. Our collections coordinator Mark O'Brien oversees the general maintenance of the collections and coordinates students and volunteers interested in working on the collections.

by Christopher Baker Home Travel Costa Rica ... CR Handbook : One Article The long history of the rainforest has enabled countless butterflies, moths, ants, termites, wasps, bees, and other tropical insects to evolve in astounding profusion. There are many thousands of ant species alone. Corcovado National Park alone has at least 220 species of breeding butterflies, plus others that simply pass through. And there are so many species of beetles and grasshoppers that no one knows the true numbers. Many, many thousands of insect species still await identification. The most brilliantly painted insects are the butterflies and moths, some quite tiny and obscure, others true giants of the insect kingdom, dazzlingly crowned in gold and jewel-like colors. In Guanacaste, hundreds of species of bees, moth larvae, and tiger beetles make an appearance in the early dry season. When the first rains come, lightbulbs are often deluged with adult moths, beetles, and other insects newly emerged from their pupae. That's the time, too, that many species of butterfly migrate from the deciduous lowland forests to highland sites. Many insect species are too small to see. The hummingbird flower mite, for example, barely half a millimeter long, is so small it can hitch rides from flower to flower inside the nostrils of hummingbirds. Other insects you may detect by their sound. Male wood crickets, for example, produce a very loud noise by rubbing together the overlapping edges of their wing cases.

131. California's Endangered Insects
In addition to over 30,000 species of insects, California boasts 563 birds, 96 reptiles, 190 mammals and well over 5000 species of plants.
C alifornia is home to an incredibly diverse biota. In addition to over 30,000 species of insects, California boasts 563 birds, 96 reptiles, 190 mammals and well over 5000 species of plants. And the numbers only tell part of the story. The geographical diversity which is responsible for this great biological diversity has also helped to preserve many unusual species, for example, giant redwoods and California Condors. Many unique insects are also restricted almost entirely to California. Rain beetles, Timema walking sticks, and Diphyllostoma beetles, to name a very few, all represent ancient lineages which are centered in California today. However, California is also home to an incredible diversity of humans, over 30 million of us and counting. As we occupy more and more space and demand more and more resources, we are disrupting the delicate systems which maintain the state's great biotic diversity. Some bioregions have almost completely succumbed to the pressures of development, such as the Central Valley, historically a mosaic of marshes, grasslands, and riparian woodland. Human development has already significantly impacted California's insect biodiversity as evidenced not only by the 20 insects currently listed as threatened or endangered by the United States Fish and Wildlife Service, but also by the nearly 150 additional species which have been proposed for listing but which are still in review. Though this WWW site concentrates primarily on existing threats to California's insects, it must be emphasized that there may be groups in more serious trouble than the insects. For example, most of California's 60 fish species are listed or are proposed for listing. Clearly California's biodiversity is being seriously impacted. The species treatments in this site attempt to call attention to habitat degradation which may be responsible for the decline of each insect. The insects are merely indicators telling us that something is wrong. We should pay attention.

Table of Contents
Soil Preparation Plant Selection Cultural Practices Encourage Beneficial Insects ... Chemical Controls
Soil Preparation
The best way to control insects and disease problems is to prevent them. Maintain a slightly acid soil (around pH 6.5). If in doubt, have a soil analysis done through your local Extension office, by a private lab, or with a commercial soil test kit. Build a biologically active, healthy soil through regular addition of organic matter, such as yardwaste, compost, and manure. Grow winter annual cover crops, such as clover or rye grass, to provide additional organic matter. Till the soil in the fall to expose pests living near the surface to natural enemies and weather, and to destroy insects in crop residues. Return to Table of Contents
Plant Selection
Plant crops that are suited to the soil and climate. If you do plant vegetables or fruits that are not normally grown in your area, provide them with necessary conditions. Use disease-free, certified seed, if available.

History and Taxonomy
Gourds have been cultivated for thousands of years by many cultures worldwide, including Native Americans, for their usefulness as utensils, storage containers, and as ornaments. Gourds are related to melons, squash, pumpkins, and cucumbers, all members of the Cucurbitaceae or Cucumber family. There are three types of gourds covered in this fact sheet: the cucurbita, or ornamental gourds; the lagenaria, which encompass the large, utilitarian gourds; and the luffa, or vegetable sponge. The cucurbita include the colorful, variously-shaped ornamental gourds often used in fall arrangements. Plants of this group produce large orange or yellow blossoms that bloom in the daytime. The lagenaria group includes the Martin or Birdhouse, Bottle and Dipper gourds. These plants produce white blossoms that bloom at night. Lagenaria gourds are green on the vine, turning brown or tan, with thick, hard shells when dry. Luffas have an outer shell that is easily removed to expose a tough, fibrous interior that can be used as a sponge. Luffas produce prolific vines with yellow blossoms and require the longest growing season of all the gourds.
