    • A Seven-Year Study of Phenolic Concentrations of the Dioecious Salix myrsinifolia 

      Nissinen, Katri; Virjamo, Virpi; Mehtätalo, Lauri; Lavola, Anu; Valtonen, Anu; Nybakken, Line; Julkunen-Tiitto, Riitta (Springer Nature, 2018)
      In boreal woody plants, concentrations of defensive phenolic compounds are expected to be at a high level during the juvenile phase and decrease in maturity, although there is variation between plant species. Females of ...

    • Artificial diets determine fatty acid composition in edible Ruspolia differens (Orthoptera: Tettigoniidae) 

      Rutaro, Karlmarx; Malinga, Geoffrey M; Opoke, Robert; Lehtovaara, Vilma J; Omujal, Francis; Nyeko, Philip, Roininen, Heikki; Valtonen, Anu (Elsevier BV, 2018)
      There are increasing interests in rearing edible insects in Africa, but information on how the feeds modify their fatty acids is largely lacking. In this work, the influence of artificial diets on the fatty acid contents ...

    • Fatty acid content and composition in edible Ruspolia differens feeding on mixtures of natural food plants 

      Rutaro, Karlmax; Malinga, Geoffrey M; Lehtovaara, Vilma J; Opoke, Robert; Nyeko, Philip; Roininen, Heikki; Valtonen, Anu (Springer Nature America, Inc, 2018)
      Objectives To develop successful mass-rearing programs of edible insects, knowledge of the feeds and their influence on nutritional content is critical. We assessed the influence of natural food plants (grass inflorescences) ...

    • Optimal Temperature for Rearing the Edible Ruspolia differens (Orthoptera: Tettigoniidae) 

      Lehtovaara, Vilma J; Roininen, Heikki; Valtonen, Anu (Oxford University Press (OUP), 2018)
      Ruspolia differens Serville (Orthoptera: Tettigoniidae) is an insect with significant economic potential in Africa. However, to mass-rear this species on a large scale, the optimal rearing temperature needs to be determined. ...
