Abstract

The available information on capybara (Hydrochoerus hydrochaeris) meat, an important resource for the subsistence of many traditional communities in several South American countries, is reviewed. Some features of the species, such as an herbivorous diet, high prolificacy, rapid growth rate,...

Abstract

The burrowing-owl, Athene cunicularia (Molina, 1782) has a wide distribution, which extends from western North America to southern South America. They are an opportunistic plunderer species preying on insects and small mammals. Data on hunting tactics of this specie are scarce in the literature....

Abstract

Captive breeding of peccaries is on the increase in neotropical countries. Few studies, however, have reported behavioural responses of wild animals under farmed conditions. Therefore, the aim of this study was to evaluate the effects of space allowance on the occurrence of social behaviour...

Abstract

Hierarchical analysis of allozyme polymorphisms was employed to demonstrate subdivided population structure for Anelosimus eximius collected from Suriname, Panama, Ecuador, Peru and Trinidad. Seven of 40 scorable enzyme loci revealed variation, with 4 of these being polymorphic within colonies or...

Abstract

It was found that genetic relatedness among P. occidentalis workers from Venezuela was 0.26±0.057, a value high enough to make altruistic behaviour by workers relatively easy to explain. This comparatively high level of relatedness can be attributed to close relatedness among queens of 0.57±0.077...

Abstract

The maintenance of sociality is most difficult to explain under circumstances where non-reproducing helpers are physiologically capable of reproducing and distantly related to the brood they rear. The Neotropical swarm-founding wasps are likely to fulfil these conditions because most taxa lack...
