  • Sensing the Underground – Ultrastructure and Function of Sensory Organs in Root-Feeding Melolontha melolontha (Coleoptera: Scarabaeinae) Larvae

    Eilers, Elisabeth J.; Talarico, Giovanni; Hansson, Bill S.; Hilker, Monika; Reinecke, Andreas (2018)
    Introduction: Below ground orientation in insects relies mainly on olfaction and taste. The economic impact of plant root feeding scarab beetle larvae gave rise to numerous phylogenetic and ecological studies. Detailed knowledge of the sensory capacities of these larvae is nevertheless lacking. Here, we present an atlas of the sensory organs on larval head appendages of Melolontha melolontha. Our ultrastructural and electrophysiological investigations allow annotation of functions to various ...

    Ecologically sound pulp production

    Conrad, Jobst; Forschungsstelle für Umweltpolitik (FFU), Freie Universität Berlin (2018)
    The case studies investigate political bargaining as well as innovation processes around efforts to reduce environmental pollution in pulp production. The development and diffusion of corresponding environmental technologies depend on their technical viability, their economic viability, the (global) socioeconomic structures of the pulp and paper industry, environmental policy regulations, and situational circumstances, reflecting the interests and relative power of actors invol...

    Working Lives in an Age of Mechanical Reproduction

    Pollock, Susan; Burmeister, Stefan; Bernbeck, Reinhard (2017)
    Summary The notion of mechanical reproduction was made famous by Walter Benjamin in a ǟǧǡǤ essay. Benjamin was concerned with modern developments; in this paper I argue that a shift toward pervasive repetitiveness in work and thus a form of mechanical reproduction was already introduced in the Uruk period (Ǣth millennium BCE) in southern Mesopotamia. I consider the ways in which work was conceptualized and structured in Uruk times, and by extension how innovations in the rea...

    The evolution of a rare mammalian trait - benefits and costs of male philopatry in proboscis bats

    Günther, Linus; Knörnschild, Mirjam; Nagy, Martina; Mayer, Frieder (2017)
    While inbreeding avoidance is widely accepted as the major driver of female natal dispersal, the evolution of male philopatry is still poorly understood and discussed to be driven by male mating strategy, mate competition among male kin and kin cooperation. During a twelve-year study, we gathered detailed genetic and observational data of individually marked proboscis bats to assess the degree of male philopatry as well as its costs and benefits to improve the understanding of its evolution. ...
