Mark – recapture estimates of daily survival rates of two damselflies ( Coenagrion puella and Ischnura elegans )

  author={Bradley R. Anholt and Christoph Vorburger and Peter Knaus},
Male-biased operational sex ratios are very common in sexually mature dragonflies. These may be due to differential survival or differences in time spent at the breeding site by the sexes. Because most studies are carried out at the breeding site, these two processes can be measured as survival rates or recapture rates using modern capture– mark–recapture methods. We marked 66 female and 233 male Coenagrion puella, and 137 female and 347 male Ischnura elegansduring three capture periods spread… CONTINUE READING
