Blow Flies Visiting Decaying Alligators: Is Succession Synchronous or Asynchronous?

Article English OPEN
Nelder, Mark P.; McCreadie, John W.; Major, Clinton S.;

Succession patterns of adult blow flies (Diptera: Calliphoridae) on decaying alligators were investigated in Mobile (Ala, USA) during August 2002. The most abundant blow fly species visiting the carcasses were Chrysomya rufifacies (Macquart), Cochliomyia macellaria (Fab... View more
