  • The organization and fine structure of the brain in the smallest parasitic wasps, Anaphes flavipes and Trichogramma evanescens, were studied using serial histological sections as well as TEM and computer-assisted 3D reconstructions. The data on the number and size of neurons in the brain of Mymaridae and Trichogrammatidae were obtained. They confirm and supplement the hypothesis about the factors limiting miniaturization of insects. The organization of the brain of the smallest parasitic wasps… CONTINUE READING
