|Title:||Polyphenism And Population Biology Of Eurema Elathea (pieridae) In A Disturbed Environment In Tropical Brazil|
|Abstract:||A population of E. elathea was studied for 13 months, from May 1996 to May 1997 in a disturbed environment in suburban Campinas, southeastern Brazil. The population showed fluctuations in numbers throughout the study period, with well-marked peaks of abundance in June-July, November-December and February. Sex ratio was male biased in four months and the time of residence was higher in the dry season. Both sexes were polyphenic; paler phenotypes occurred in the dry season and darker phenotypes in the wet season. Paler phenotypes were more frequently recaptured and had higher residence values than darker ones. Differences in behavior were attributed to adaptation to seasonally different environments.|
