|Title:||Larval Dispersal In Chrysomya Megacephala, Chrysomya Putoria And Cochliomyia Macellaria (dipt., Calliphoridae): Ecological Implications Of Aggregation Behaviour|
Von Zuben C.J.
Dos Reis S.F.
|Abstract:||In this study we investigate aggregated patterns as a consequence of post-feeding larval dispersal in three blowfly species, based on the frequency distribution of sampling units in the substrate having 0, 1, 2,..., n pupae. Statistical analysis revealed that aggregated patterns of distribution emerge as a consequence of larval dispersal, and Cochliomyia macellaria has higher levels of aggregation when compared to Chrysomya megacephala and C. putoria. Aggregation during dispersal is associated with a spatial pattern where most larvae in the species tend to pupariate near the food source. The possible consequences for the population ecology of these species are discussed.|
