Hence once the insect is in the plume of odor close to its source, klinokinesis may be so strong that at least a proportion of the insects are unable to deviate from their course, even when offered an adjacent supernormal visual stimulus. Thus, even close to the source, visual stimuli interact with the chemical stimuli rather than substituting for them. The unnatural situation of separating the appropriate chemical and visual stimuli may be unacceptable to a proportion of the responding insects.
The advantages of this system are that it requires little plant material, it avoids artifacts from impure solvents, and it provides an estimate of the concentration of the volatile chemicals that the insects normally experience during host-plant finding in the field. Its most serious disadvantage, however, is that many of the chemicals 34 S. Finch are present in such small quantities that the analytical techniques are often operating close to their limits. Hence, even for the analysis of volatile substances collected using the "head-space" technique, some form of concentration if often carried out prior to analysis.
That is mixed with a particular color the less it is saturated. Hence, pastel colors are said to be desaturated whereas strong vivid colors are highly saturated. If part of a colored card reflects directly the incident white light as a shiny area or "flash point," the saturation of color in that area is greatly reduced. Furthermore, if half of a sheet of colored card is in shadow, then hue and saturation remain the same; only intensity (or brightness) has changed (Langford, 1974). (a) Colored papers.
