The native color pigments are also lost, so the domesticated moths are leucistic since camouflage isn't useful when they only live in captivity. These changes have made the domesticated strains entirely dependent upon humans for survival.
Silkworm breeding[ edit ] Silkworms and mulberry leaves placed on trays Liang Kai 's Sericulture c. The silkworm is one of the few organisms wherein the principles of genetics and breeding were applied to harvest maximum output[ citation needed ]. It is second only to maize in exploiting the principles of heterosis and cross breeding.
The major objectives are improving fecundity the egg-laying capacity of a breed , the health of larvae, quantity of cocoon and silk production, and disease resistance.
Healthy larvae lead to a healthy cocoon crop. Health is dependent on factors such as better pupation rate, fewer dead larvae in the mountage,  shorter larval duration shorter larval duration lessens the chance of infection and bluish-tinged fifth-instar larvae which are healthier than the reddish-brown ones.
Quantity of cocoon and silk produced are directly related to the pupation rate and larval weight. Healthier larvae have greater pupation rates and cocoon weights. Quality of cocoon and silk depends on a number of factors including genetics. Hobby raising and school projects[ edit ] In the US, teachers may sometimes introduce the insect life cycle to their students by raising silkworms in the classroom as a science project. Students have a chance to observe complete life cycles of insect from egg stage to larvae, pupa, moth.
The silkworm has been raised as a hobby in countries such as China, South Africa, Zimbabwe, and Iran. Children often pass on the eggs, creating a non-commercial population.
The experience provides children with the opportunity to witness the life cycle of silkworms.
The practice of raising silkworms by children as pets has, in non-silk farming South Africa, led to the development of extremely hardy landraces of silkworms, because they are invariably subjected to hardships not encountered by commercially farmed members of the species. Genome[ edit ] The full genome of the silkworm was published in by the International Silkworm Genome Consortium.
High genetic variability has been found in domestic lines of silkworms, though this is less than that among wild silkmoths about 83 percent of wild genetic variation. This suggests a single event of domestication, and that it happened over a short period of time, with a large number of wild worms having been collected for domestication.
He is revealed to be a charlatan, torturing his wife Effigy to fuel his own creativity and passing her torment off as art. Daniel Chard — the president of Roper Chard, a London publishing house specialising in modern literature. He lacks social skills and is implied to be a latent homosexual. Daniel appears as Phallus Impudicus, a man who murders writers to steal their talent, violating their corpses with his diseased penis.
Despite considerable tension as a result of her working for Strike, Robin eventually tells him about her lifelong dream of being a detective and Matthew accepts to let her do it although he doesn't much like it. Richard Anstis — a detective with the Metropolitan Police who was involved in the incident that cost Strike his leg.
Strike considers him a capable investigator, but lacking in imagination. Orlando Quine — Quine's intellectually-disabled daughter. She is the only person in Quine's life who does not appear in the Bombyx Mori manuscript, and it is implied that she is the only person he genuinely cares about. Lucy — Strike's half-sister on his mother's side, and the only member of his family that he has any regular contact with.
Despite being his younger sister, she tends to mother him, encouraging him to settle down and start a family, much to Strike's consternation. Alexander 'Al' Rokeby — Strike's half-brother on his father's side, and the only member of his father's side of the family with whom he has any contact. She becomes enamoured with him and pursues a romantic relationship with him, which is not reciprocated. Joe North — an American writer and friend of Quine and Fancourt. He died of AIDS while writing about his experiences living with the disease.
After lying abandoned for twenty years, the house where North died became the scene of Quine's murder.
Christian Fisher — the editor of a niche publishing house who leaks the Bombyx Mori manuscript. Dominic Culpepper — an opportunistic tabloid journalist who hires Strike to find evidence of wrongdoing among the rich and powerful.
He expresses surprise that Strike does not resort to phone-hacking to acquire evidence. Charlotte Ross — Strike's on-again, off-again former flame.
Following the breakdown of their relationship, she has become engaged to another man, but continues to taunt Strike from afar. Reception[ edit ] Much like The Cuckoo's Calling, The Silkworm was met with critical acclaim, selling more copies than its predecessor in its opening weeks.
Val McDermid from The Guardian gave the novel a positive review, but criticised the descriptions of the different London settings, which she considered superfluous: "I suspect that having spent so many books describing a world only she knew has left her with the habit of telling us rather too much about a world most of us know well enough to imagine for ourselves".
