    • Evaluating mating compatibility within fruit fly cryptic species complexes and the potential role of sex pheromones in pre-mating isolation 

      Juárez, María Laura; Devescovi, Francisco; Břízová, Radka; Bachmann, Guillermo Enrique; Segura, Diego Fernando; Kalinová, Blanka; Fernandez, Patricia; Ruiz, María Josefina; Yang, Jianquan; Teal, Peter E. A.; Caceres, Carlos; Vreysen, Marc J. B.; Hendrichs, Jorge; Vera, María Teresa (Pensoft Publishers, 2015-11)
      The study of sexual behavior and the identification of the signals involved in mate recognition between con-specifics are key components that can shed some light, as part of an integrative taxonomic approach, in delimitating ...
    • Male Sexual Behavior and Pheromone Emission Is Enhanced by Exposure to Guava Fruit Volatiles in Anastrepha fraterculus 

      Bachmann, Guillermo Enrique; Segura, Diego Fernando; Devescovi, Francisco; Juárez, María Laura; Ruiz, María Josefina; Vera, María Teresa; Cladera, Jorge Luis; Teal, Peter E.A.; Fernandez, Patricia Carina (Plos One, 2015-04)
      Background: Plant chemicals can affect reproductive strategies of tephritid fruit flies by influencing sex pheromone communication and increasing male mating competitiveness. Objective and Methodology: We explored whether ...
    • Mate choice confers direct benefits to females of Anastrepha fraterculus (Diptera: Tephritidae) 

      Bachmann, Guillermo Enrique; Devescovi, Francisco; Nussenbaum, Ana Laura; Milla, Fabian Horacio; Shelly, Todd E.; Cladera, Jorge Luis; Fernandez, Patricia; Vera, María Teresa; Segura, Diego Fernando (Public Library of Science, 2019-06)
      Exposure to plant compounds and analogues of juvenile hormone (JH) increase male mating success in several species of tephritid fruit flies. Most of these species exhibit a lek mating system, characterized by active female ...
    • Plant chemicals and the sexual behavior of male tephritid fruit flies 

      Segura, Diego Fernando; Belliard, Silvina Ahnahi; Vera, María Teresa; Bachmann, Guillermo Enrique; Ruiz, María Josefina; Jofre-Barud, Flavia; Fernandez, Patricia Carina; Lopez, M. Liza; Shelly, Todd E. (Oxford University Press, 2018-09)
      Plant compounds affect insects in many different ways. In addition to being a food source, plants also contain secondary metabolites that may have positive and negative impacts on insects. The influence of these compounds ...
