    Container flooding changes how the water will affect eggs, such as oxygen
    concentration, which may be the proximal stimulus for the egg to hatch.

    TRUE OR FALSE
    TRUE
  4. AMCA MODULE 2

    The successful invasion of Aedes aegypti into more temperate climates, such
    as the northeast United States and Europe, is facilitated by diapause in the
    egg stage.


    TRUE OR FALSE
    FALSE
  5. AMCA MODULE 2
    5
    Diapause is a mechanism that mosquitoes use as a means to survive
    predictable, unfavorable environmental conditions, such as changes in
    daylight, temperature extremes, drought, or reduced food availability


    TRUE OR FALSE
    TRUE
  6. AMCA MODULE 2

    It is now known that harmonic convergence of male and female wing beat frequencies leads to
    successful copulation, in addition to the known roles of:

    PROBOSCIS
    VISION
    SIZE
    ODOR
    ODOR AND VISION
  7. AMCA MODULE 2

    Diapause provides extra protection for embryos by a number of different
    mechanisms, such as the following: (Select all that apply)

    PUPAE DEVELOP EARLIER THAN NORMAL
    THE SURFACE OF EGGS DEVELOPS EXTRA PROTECTION, WHICH CAN PROTECT THEM FROM SNOW
    THEY SUPERCOOL WHERE FREEZING POINT IS LOWERED
    EMBRYOS ENLARGE WITHIN EGGS, WHICH PRODUCES MORE NUTRIENTS AND WARMTH
    • The surface of eggs develops extra protection, which can protect them from snow
    • They supercool where freezing point is lowered
  8. AMCA MODULE 2

    When survivorship is compared across different relative humidities, Aedes
    albopictus is always the most resistant to low humidities. Aedes aegypti is
    intermediate between albopictus and forest species.

    TRUE OR FALSE
    FALSE
  9. AMCA MODULE 2
    9
    Experiments show that larval Aedes triseriatus can detect and evade
    predation more effectively than Aedes albopictus.

    TRUE OR FALSE
    TRUE
  10. AMCA MODULE 2
    10
    When competing for resources, larval competition is one possible explanation
    for why Aedes albopictus caused competitive exclusion or displacement of
    aegypti as it moved through the southeast United States.

    TRUE OR FALSE
    TRUE
  11. AMCA MODULE 2
    11 Aedes aegypti has spread in the same regions as Aedes albopictus.

    TRUE OR FALSE
    FALSE
  12. AMCA MODULE 2
    12
    If a male Aedes aegypti mates with a female Aedes albopictus, they will
    produce offspring.

    TRUE OR FALSE
    FALSE
  13. AMCA MODULE 2
    13
    Which of the following are characteristics of skip oviposition? (Select all that
    apply)

    It may extend the gonotrophic cycle
    It is a characteristic of both Aedes aegypti and Aedes albopictus
    It is a result of container flooding
    • It may extend the gonotrophic cycle
    • It is a characteristic of both Aedes aegypti and Aedes albopictus
  14. AMCA MODULE 2
    14
    Aedes aegypti does not like rural habitats with unpaved dirt or habitats with
    either ground or canopy vegetation.

    TRUE OR FALSE
    TRUE
  15. AMCA MODULE 2
    15
    Satyrization is a form of mating interference in which males of one species
    mate with females of another species, significantly decreasing their fitness
    and not generating hybrids.

    TRUE OR FALSE
    TRUE
  16. AMCA MODULE 2
    16
    A pharate stage is the one that has completed the ___________, but is
    hidden in the shell or skin of the previous stage.

    INTERFERENCE
    METAMORPHOSIS
    LEK
    SATYRIZATION
    METAMORPHOSIS
  17. AMCA MODULE 2
    17
    Realized niche is the full range of environmental conditions and resources an
    organism can possibly occupy and use, especially when limiting factors are
    absent in its habitat.


    TRUE OR FALSE
    FALSE
  18. AMCA MODULE 2
    18
  19. AMCA MODULE 2
    19 Gonotrophic cycle may be defined as:

    A safey mechanism in nature that ensures that there will not be competition for the larvae to feed once the eggs hatch

    The amount of time between fertilization of mosquito eggs and the development of larvae in the container

    One complete round of ovarian development from the time when the blood meal is taken to the time when the full developed eggs are laid
    One complete round of ovarian development from the time when the blood meal is taken to the time when the fully developed eggs are laid.
  20. AMCA MODULE 2
    20 Spermatheca is:

    A form of mantaining interference in which males of one species mate with females of another species

    Responsible for receiving, maintaining, and releasing sperm to fertilize eggs

    Another term for common oviduct
    Responsible for receiving, maintaining, and releasing sperm to fertilize eggs
  21. AMCA MODULE 2
    21
