Absence of nectar resource partitioning in a community of parasitoid wasps

Menz, Myles H. M; Brown, Graham; Dixon, Kingsley; Phillips, Ryan


Parasitoid wasps occur in diverse communities, with the adults of most species sourcing carbohydrates from nectar or honeydew. However, the role of niche partitioning of nectar resources in maintaining diverse communities of parasitoid Hymenoptera is poorly known. To elucidate patterns of nectar resource use and test whether species partition resources, we investigated pollen loads in a community of parasitoid thynnine wasps in the biodiversity hotspot of southwestern Australia. In total, 304...[Show more]
