Behavioral Aspects of Chemoreception in Blood-Sucking Invertebrates

  • Rachel Galun
Part of the Advances in Behavioral Biology book series (ABBI, volume 15)


Feeding is accomplished through a series of behavior patterns, which, while related and perhaps interdependent, can be considered not only as parts of a single act, but also as separate phenomena, each controlled by a particular set of physical and chemical conditions (Lindstedt, 1971). The generalized feeding pattern in bloodsucking invertebrates is shown graphically in Fig. 1.
