Life history traits and secondary production of Campsurus violaceus (Ephemeroptera: Polymitarcyidae) in the Paraná River floodplain lakes, Argentina
(Taylor & Francis Ltd, 2012-04)
Campsurus nymphs are among the most abundant mayflies in neotropical aquatic habitats. The abundance patterns and secondary production of Campsurus violaceus were analyzed monthly from April 2005 to March 2006 in lakes ...
Heritability of morphological and life history traits in a pelagic tunicate
Populations may adapt in response to selection pressures imposed by global environmental change. In marine zooplankton, measurements of the heritability of key life history characters, and thus the potential for evolution, ...
A comparative analysis of host feeding and life-history traits in parasitoid wasps
(Wiley Blackwell Publishing, Inc, 2016-05)
Feeding in insect parasitoids can have significant implications from behavioral and evolutionary ecology standpoints. Females of many species not only search for hosts to lay their eggs on, but also may use them as a food ...
Trait contributions to fish community assembly emerge from trophic interactions in an individual-based model
Community ecology seeks to understand and predict the characteristics of communities that can develop under different environmental conditions, but most theory has been built on analytical models that are limited in the ...
Latitudinal differences in life-history traits and parental care in northern and southern temperate zone House Wrens
South temperate songbirds differ from northtemperate species in life-history traits, having greater adultsurvival, smaller clutch size, longer developmental periodsand extended parental care. Due to its broad distribution,the ...
