dbo:abstract
  • Callosobruchus maculatus is a species of beetles known commonly as the cowpea weevil or cowpea seed beetle. It is a member of the leaf beetle family, Chrysomelidae, and not a true weevil. This common pest of stored legumes has a cosmopolitan distribution, occurring on every continent except Antarctica. The beetle most likely originated in West Africa and moved around the globe with the trade of legumes and other crops. As only a small number of individuals were likely present in legumes carried by people to distant places, the populations that have invaded various parts of the globe have likely gone through multiple bottlenecks. Despite these bottlenecks and the subsequent rounds of inbreeding, these populations persist. This ability to withstand a high degree of inbreeding has likely contributed to this species’ prevalence as a pest. It is used as a model organism for both research and education due to its quick generation time, sexual dimorphism, and ease of maintenance. (en)
  • Callosobruchus maculatus, la Bruche à quatre taches ou Bruche du Niébé, est une espèce de coléoptères de la famille des Chrysomelidae et de la sous-famille des Bruchinae. C'est une espèce primitivement tropicale mais répandue depuis dans le monde entier où elle parasite des plantes légumineuses, de préférence les graines de Vigna et de Dolichos, dans les cultures d'abord, puis en vase clos dans les entrepôts. Les pertes en poids occasionnées par les bruches dans les stocks peuvent être estimées à plus de 80 % après six ou sept mois de stockage et les graines deviennent inconsommables. (fr)

  • Callosobruchus maculatus är en skalbaggsart som först beskrevs av Fabricius 1775. Callosobruchus maculatus ingår i släktet Callosobruchus och familjen bladbaggar. Arten förekommer tillfälligt i Sverige, men reproducerar sig inte. Inga underarter finns listade i Catalogue of Life. (sv)
