Behavioural interactions and use of feeding areas by nymphs of Coenagrion resolutum (Coenagrionidae: Odonata)

  title={Behavioural interactions and use of feeding areas by nymphs of Coenagrion resolutum (Coenagrionidae: Odonata)},
  author={Robert L. Baker},
Behaviour of Coenagrion resolutum nymphs was studied in the laboratory. Based on characteristics of the behaviour, analysis of the effects of inter-nymph distance on behaviour, and association analysis between behaviours, some of the observed behaviours were classified as grooming, feeding/aggression, retreat, or defense. In an experiment on use of space, some nymphs excluded others from feeding areas through aggressive interactions. Frequency of interactions won by those nymphs seen most often… CONTINUE READING
