Abstract Apis mellifera jemenitica is the indigenous race of honey bees in the Arabian Peninsula and is tolerant to local drought conditions. Experiments were undertaken to determine the differences in associative learning and memory of honey bee workers living in the arid zone of Saudi Arabia, utilizing the proboscis extension response (PER). These experiments were conducted on the indigenous race ( A . m . jemenitica ) along with two introduced European races ( A . m . carnica and A . m . ligu...

Controlled placement of nanomaterials at predefined locations with nanoscale precision remains among the most challenging problems that inhibit their large-scale integration in the field of semiconductor process technology. Methods based on surface functionalization have a drawback where undesired chemical modifications can occur and deteriorate the deposited material. The application of electric-field assisted placement techniques eliminates the element of chemical treatment; however, it requir...

Nearly all of Earth’s ecosystems are suffering rapid and intense environmental changes, pushing species extinction rates to levels higher than those previously observed in past mass-extinction events. In this context, the ongoing effects of climate change are expected to cause severe impacts on biodiversity in the near- to medium-term future. Yet, the lack of knowledge concerning the geographic distributions of species is an important drawback to the efficacy of practical actions towards species...

Electric field-controlled, two-dimensional (2D) exciton dynamics in transition metal dichalcogenide monolayers is a current research focus in condensed matter physics. We have experimentally investigated the spectral and temporal properties of the A-exciton in a molybdenum diselenide (MoSe2) monolayer under controlled variation of a vertical, electric dc field at room temperature. By using steady-state and time-resolved photoluminescence spectroscopies, we have observed dc field-induced spectral...

Summary Camouflage and mimicry are staples among predator-prey interactions, and evolutionary novelties in behavior, anatomy, and physiology that permit such mimesis are rife throughout the biological world [1, 2]. These specializations allow for prey to better evade capture or permit predators to more easily approach their prey, or in some cases, the mimesis can serve both purposes. Despite the importance of mimesis and camouflage in predator-avoidance or hunting strategies, the long-term histo...

Abstract The mason bee Osmia ( Helicosmia ) latreillei Spinola is one of the dominant species of bees throughout Egypt, and can be found commonly in the Suez Canal Region. The species visits numerous plant species of the family Asteraceae and is considered the most important pollinator of certain crops such as sunflower. This species and some other solitary cavity nesting bees are threatened by fragmentation of their nesting habitats. Several attempts were made to establish and propagate O. latr...
