Abstract

Three models for the evolution of host-feeding behaviour in parasitoid wasps are developed. The first assumes that the wasp host-feeds purely to obtain resources to mature eggs (limited resource model) while the second assumes that host-feeding provides energy for maintenance (pro-ovigenic model)....

Abstract

Host selection by solitary parasitoids is modelled as a problem in the evolution of life histories. Two kinds of trade-offs are considered: patchy versus fine-grained host distribution and an egg production rate that is either negatively related to adult survival or a fixed constant. These lead to...

Abstract

The 22 chapters of this book, by many authors, discuss: electrophoresis as a technique in the research of evolutionary biology of agricultural pests; electrophoretic studies in population biology; genetic studies of species differences and their relevance to the problem of species formation in ...

Abstract

This paper attempts to trace the probable evolution of mammalian trypanosomes. Haemato-phagous insects probably originated from phytophagous and/or predaceous ancestors, the trypano-somatid parasites of which eventually gave rise to trypanosomes. Trypanosomes transmitted by inoculation...
