Microdot technology for individual marking of small arthropods
Individual mark-release-recapture is an important method for gathering data on insect movement, although it is limited by the constraints of tagging small insects with individual information. Microdots, originally developed for covert security applications, are small polymer discs (diameter 0.5 mm) bearing up to 26 characters of information and have the potential as an alternative to the larger bee tags. In the present study, we test microdots for the individual marking of a 9-mm parasitoid...[Show more]
