Capturing specimens of 31 different Dipteran families is certainly indicative of the high overall level of biological diversity present in this area, especially considering that this research took place over nine days during the beginning of the rainy season and was limited to only a small fraction (nearing 1%) of the land available to research.
Dipterans typically form a small portion of the diet of the big brown bat, perhaps because of the usual small size of these insects, although Whitaker and Barnard (2005) reported trace amounts of mosquitoes in the diet of big brown bats from Georgia.
Unlike previous research, we found that the diet of female and male eastern pipistrelles predominately consisted of Homopterans and Dipterans, respectively (Table I).
1 shows that at a size ([greater than]55 mm SL) where the diet of redear was dominated by gastropods ([greater than or equal to]80%), the diet of pumpkinseed was substantially [less than]20% gastropods and was instead dominated by dipteran larvae [ILLUSTRATION FOR FIGURE 2 OMITTED].
Comparisons of composite enzyme maps of mosquitoes with the Drosophila melanogaster enzyme linkage map suggests that several groups of enzyme loci have been conserved, although most traces of hornology between the two dipteran lineages have disappeared.
Additionally, Lygaeidae were abundant at both farms but Bibionidae, Calliphoridae, and certain other dipterans were prevalent only at the vegetable farm.
All mutants showed different interaction profiles with lepidopteran and dipteran receptors when analyzed on PDBsum generate.

Grootaert adds two new species to the dipteran genus Tachydromia (Hybotidae), one from Ethiopia and one from Uganda, and demonstrates a wider distribution of Tachydromia in the Afrotropics.

IGRs were introduced in the late 1970s and have been widely used for control of dipteran pests worldwide.
