Lifetime Reproductive Success, Selection, and the Opportunity for Selection in the White-tailed Skimmer Plathemis Lydia (odonata: Libellulidae).


We present estimates of lifetime reproductive success in Plathemis lydia, a territorial dragonfly. We partition the opportunity for selection into multiplicative episodes using the techniques of Arnold and Wade (1984a, 1984b) and measure selection on several morphological and behavioral characters. For both sexes, variance in survivorship was the largest… (More)
