SummaryThe intraspecific variability of the nest structures ofPolistes dominulus is described quantitatively. Several variables already used in the literature (e.g. wall expenditure and diameter ratio) are reexamined and a number of new ones are suggested. Variables are analyzed with respect to their dependency on the size and the maturation of the colony.The analyses were based on mathematical functions deduced for ideal nest growth. In the examined species, the numbers of outer walls and… Expand
