File Description [top]

Zoological Record Online®, currently published by Thomson Scientific, formerly BIOSIS and the Zoological Society of London until 2004, is the world's most comprehensive index to zoological and animal science literature. Records cover every aspect of zoology, including biochemistry, behavior, ecology, evolution, genetics, etc., with particular emphasis on biodiversity and systematic/taxonomic information. More than 5,000 international serials plus approximately 1,500 non-serial publications are currently monitored, including professional journals, magazines, newsletters, monographs, books, reviews, and conference proceedings. The database corresponds to the printed index, Zoological Record® and includes thorough subject indexing in both controlled- and natural-language format, complimented by an online thesaurus.

  /AB  ABSTRACT: Our study showed that one species of water strider (Aquarius 
    najas) dominated the insect fauna (>90% of the biomass) on and near the 
    surface of a small stream in southern Sweden, but the diet of Daubenton's 
    bats (Myotis daubentonii), regularly feeding over the same stream, 
    contained <1% of these insects. To explain why the bats did not eat water 
    striders in proportion to the apparent abundance of these insects, we 
    tested three hypotheses, with the following results: (1) The water 
    striders did not respond to artificial bat calls and therefore their 
    defence against bats is not based on ultrasonic hearing. (2) Water 
    striders hand-fed to the bats were eaten with similar frequency as 
    palatable controls (caddis flies), so there is no evidence that water 
    striders are unpalatable to bats. (3) Attempted prey-captures by the bats 
    occurred less often than expected within 1 m of the bank of the stream 
    (the bank consisted of a stone wall), indicating that the bats' flight 
    or, alternatively, their detection or capture of insects, was difficult 
    within that area, possibly constrained by clutter. At dusk and just 
    before the bats emerged to feed, the water striders moved away from the 
    open water. They remained motionless close to the bank for as long as the 
    bats were active.
