Morphological traits, allometric relationship and competition of two seed-feeding species of beetles in infested pods

Abstract

Pair-wise competition produces asymmetric consequences for the interacting species, resulting in reduction of species fitness at the individual scale; however, little is known of the effects of competition on the allometric patterns of insects. In this study, we explored how competition, by means of pod infestation, affects the development of female and… (More)
