    The Behavioural Ecology of Parasites - Google Books Parasites have evolved numerous complex and fascinating ways of interacting with their hosts. The subject attracts the interest of numerous.   Behavioral Ecology and Sociobiology publishes reviews, original contributions and commentaries dealing with quantitative empirical and theoretical studies in the analysis of animal behavior at the level of the individual, group, population, community, and species.

    Behavioural Ecology gives a fresh, contemporary account of the evolutionary and ecological processes that underpin animal behaviour. Contributions from subject experts and meticulous editing yield a text with all the qualities of a multi-author book, but . This book is based on papers from the proceedings of a conference held at the Ettore Majorana Centre, Erice, Italy, provides an overview of the key developments in behavioural ecology. Four main areas of interest are covered the behavioural ecology of predator avoidance, foraging, resource defence and life histories and reproduction.

      The successful rearing of the army ant Neivamyrmex nigrescens in the laboratory has enabled us to demonstrate that the pheromone trail deposited by re. Here is a guide to the ecology of social insects. It is intended for general ecologists and entomologists as well as for undergraduates and those about to start research on social insects; even the experienced investigator may find the comparison between .

Franks (Author) ISBN This book is concerned with two problems: how eusociality, in which one individual forgoes reproduction to enhance the reproduction of a nestmate, could evolve under natural selection, and why it is found only in some insects-termites, ants.

This book presents an introduction to some of the explanations for the evolution of social behaviour in ants and reviews their phylogeny and diversity, reproductive strategies, conflicts within colonies, division of labour, worker design and performance, and communication by: Chapter 15 (Page no: ) The behavioural ecology of social parasitism in ants.

This chapter reviews the behavioural ecology of socially parasitic ants belonging to compound nests (i.e. the parasite and host species maintain their broods separately) or mixed colonies (i.e. the brood is kept communally, with the parasite's brood mixed with that of the host); behavioural.

Ants occur in almost every terrestrial habitat, from tundra north of the Arctic Circle (Brown, ) to the tip of Tierra del Fuego (Wilson, ).

In many ecological communities ants are so dominant that all the available space appears to be the province of one colony or another, and they occupy a large number of roles in each community.

Predatory ants may reduce infestation by herbivorous insects, and slow‐moving L epidopteran larvae are often vulnerable on foliage. We investigate whether caterpillars with morphological or behavioural defences have decreased risk of falling prey to ants, and if defence traits mediate host plant use in ant‐rich cerrado savanna.

Natural History. Written for the academic. Behavioral ecology, also spelled behavioural ecology, is the study of the evolutionary basis for animal behavior due to ecological pressures.

Behavioral ecology emerged from ethology after Niko Tinbergen outlined four questions to address when studying animal behaviors: What are the proximate causes, ontogeny, survival value, and phylogeny of a behavior?.

If an organism has. Behavioral Ecology. The study of Behavioral Ecology examines the ecological (proximate) and evolutionary (ultimate) causes of animal behavior and uses behavior to make predictions about ecological patterns. A major theme is social insects as model systems. The behavioural ecology of parasites.

Description This book addresses the behavioural adaptations of parasites across a broad range of taxa, including parasitoid wasps, entomopathogenic nematodes, seed-feeding insects and plant-parasitic nematodes. About the journal.

Bringing together significant work on all aspects of the subject, Behavioral Ecology is broad-based and covers both empirical and theoretical approaches. Studies on the whole range of behaving organisms Find out moreMissing: ants.

Here is a guide to the ecology of social insects. It is intended for general ecologists and entomologists as well as for undergraduates and those about to start research on social insects; even the experienced investigator may find the comparison between different groups of social insects illuminating.

Most technical terms are translated into common language as far as can. Competition between species, i.e. interspecific competition, has been a major theme in the study of wood ants and their role in species assemblages. This chapter considers interspecific competition as it relates to wood ants, including the behavioural interactions with other ant species and mechanisms of coexistence.In this book, initially published inProfessor Beattie reviews the fascinating natural history of ant–plant interactions, discusses the scientific evidence for the mutualistic nature of these relationships, and reaches some conclusions about the ecological and evolutionary processes that mold them.Her research covers tree-insect interactions, and riparian and wetland ecology.

Elva J. H. Robinson is a Lecturer in Ecology at the Department of Biology, University of York. Her research area is the behavioural ecology of social animal groups, with particular focus on the organisation of ant societies.
