Title Insect food uptake rates
Downloaded 31 times
Description We compiled a data set of consumption and assimilation rates through ontogeny for different insects. Data was retrieved from a comprehensive literature search of insect consumption and assimilation through ontogeny, which resulted in data for 41 insects from 6 orders being included in the present analysis (Coleoptera (n = 14), Lepidoptera (n =14), Hemiptera (n = 6), Orthoptera (n =5), Diptera (n =1), and Neuroptera (n = 1)). Where possible, data was extracted from tables or requested from the original authors of the study, otherwise figures were digitized so that data points could be extracted.
