Abstract

The influence of two photoperiods (14L:10D and 24L:0D) and four wavelengths of light [white (control), blue (c. 475 ran), yellow (c. 570 nm) and red (c. 650nm)] on development and reproduction of the ladybird, Propylea dissecta (Mulsant), was investigated. The photoperiod of 14L:10D and the white-light wavelength recorded fastest development, maximum survival and reproduction. The developmental and reproductive Performance decreased in the order white > yellow > blue > red. The effect of the wavelength is probably due to the differential predatory response under different coloured arenas.

Résumé

Résumé

L'influence de deux photopériodes (14 h de lumière:10h d'obscurité et 24 h d'obscurité) et de quatre types de lumière: blanc (témoin), bleu (±475nm), jaune (±570nm) et rouge (±650nm) sur le développement et la reproduction de la coccinelle Propylea dissecta (Mulsant) a été étudiée. La photopériode de 14 h de lumière:10h d'obscurité et la lumière blanche ont permis un meilleur développement, des taux maxima de survie et de reproduction. Les performances de survie et de reproduction induites par la lumière diminuent dans l'ordre suivant blanc > jaune > bleu > rouge. L'effet de la longueur d'onde lumineuse résulte probablement de différences du comportement de prédation induites par les différentes couleurs.
