Selective Differentiation of Distinct Good Foragers of Cryptolaemus montrouzieri Mulsant for Population Genetic Studies
The present study explains an efficient method for identifying the good foragers among the Cryptolaemus montrouzieri Mulsant populations for genetic studies where the trait accuracy is of utmost importance. Subjecting the adult C. montrouzieri beetles to pre-starvation was found to be an accurate method for identifying the good foragers over continuous feeding.
