Reproductive strategies of two forms of flightless males in a non‐pollinating fig wasp under partial local mate competition
Several non‐pollinating fig wasp lineages have dimorphic males, typically with winged males that disperse from natal figs to mate and flightless males that seek mating opportunities in natalfigs.
Work division of floral scent compounds in mediating pollinator behaviours
Results show that OL and NE act as a long-distance attractant and a fig-entry behaviour stimulant to the obligate pollinator wasp, which partially explains the maintenance mechanism of the fig-fig wasp mutualism and the significance of the chemical diversity of floral scent in plant–pollinator interactions, especially in specialised pollination systems.

Experimental studies proved that the two Walkerella species are gall formers because sex ratios of both species decreased as brood sizes within individual figs increased and foundresses of bothspecies were able to lay clutches containing a single male egg and several female eggs.
