Recent Advances in Acarology, Volume I, emerged from the V International Congress of Acarology held at Michigan State University in August 1978. It includes the contents of the symposia and a selection of contributions to the workshops and submitted paper sessions. The book is organized into six parts. Part 1 focuses on the pest management of agricultural mites. Part 2 on the biology of spider mites presents contributions in the areas of male reproductive behavior, silk production, pheromones, the components of reproductive success, and the effects of nutrition and temperature on tetranychid development. Part 3 on stored product acarology includes papers that reflect a broad understanding of acarine biology, nutrition, biochemistry, systematics, and ecology. Part 4 is devoted to physiology, biochemistry, and toxicology. It includes reports on the use of low-energy laser-generated x rays to measure salt concentrations in ducts of living mites; the use of labeled butanediol in metabolism studies of acarid mites; and electron microscope studies of functional morphology of ticks. Part 5 on ecology, bionomics, and behavior includes studies on the developmental cycle of sponge-associated water mites; behavior of tick larvae in relation to C02; and the influence of maternal age on the sex ratio of the progeny of a tetranychid. Part 6 presents research on soil mite biology.
