Seasonal changes in body size, sexual size dimorphism and sex ratio in relation to mating system in an adult odonate community

Abstract

Seasonal environments impose developmental time constraints on insects which can be reflected in body size and sex ratio. By tracking these two aspects in recently emerged adults of 10 species of an odonate community in a number of lakes, we investigated whether (a) body size in both sexes decreased as the flight season progressed and whether this led to… (More)
