Gains in our knowledge of dispersal and migration in insects have been largely limited to either wing-dimorphic species or current genetic model systems. Species belonging to these categories, however, represent only a tiny fraction of insect biodiversity, potentially making generalization problematic. In this perspective, I present three topics in which current and future research may lead to. Johnson, C.G. () Migration and Dispersal of Insects by Flight. pp. London, UK, Methuen.

Flight in insects is gained by muscles, not attached directly to the wings, that move the wings indirectly by changing the shape of the thorax. The following records relate to the flight of insects: Migration distance — Painted Lady Butterfly, from North Africa to Iceland, a distance of 4, miles.   Johnson CG () Migration and dispersal of insects by flight.

Drawing on biomechanical principles, he describes and evaluates flight behavior and the limits to flight performance, before analysing the origins of flight in insects, the roles of natural and sexual selection in determining how insects fly, and the relationship between flight and insect size, pollination, predation, dispersal, and migration.

This comprehensive review of knowledge on the migration and dispersal of insects by flight is arranged in six main parts. In the first, general aspects are dealt with, including the definition of terms, the difference between migratory and non-migratory flight, the various kinds or classes of migration and the ways in which migration begins in insects of various by: • Mia Castile wrote a book- Butter fly Migration in The.

Migration and dispersal. We have looked at some of the factors which constrain organisms to a fundamental niche, and then within that to a realised niche. One of the important factors involved was the ability to reach favourable areas.

This is achieved through migration and dispersal. Definitions. However, little is known about destinations and strategies of individual insects. We attached miniaturized radio transmitters (ca mg) to the thoraxes of 14 individual dragonflies (common green darners, Anax junius) and followed them during their autumn migration for up to 12 days, using receiver-equipped Cessna airplanes and ground teams.

Migration and Dispersal of Insects by Flight by Johnson, C.g. at Pemberley Books. "Flight is one of the most important characters of the Insecta. It is by flight that insects disperse adaptively from one breeding site to others, that is to say they migrate; indeed, that is perhaps the primary function for which their flight evolved (Wigglesworth a, b, Johnsonb, Rainey ).

explanations of insect flight. He analyzes the origins of flight in insects, the roles of natural and sexual selection in determining how insects fly, and the relationship between flight and insect size, pollination, predation, dispersal, and migration.

Dudley ranges widely--from basic aerodynamics to. Estimated flight metabolism during foraging (probably more energy demanding than migratory flight because of speed and manoeuvres) is around W g −1 or J h −1 for a 1 g insect.

Thus, a 1 gram darner may fly for a maximum of h using stored fat. Chapter 4 (Page no: 60) Dispersal and migration of insects and their importance in pest management. This chapter presents a few selected case histories on insect pests moving across a variety of distances and how consideration of their migratory behaviour has, or has not, aided in their management.
