Inferring life history from ovipositor morphology in parasitoid wasps using phylogenetic regression and discriminant analysis

Abstract:

Our understanding of the critical shift in life history among insect parasitoids from ectoparasitism to endoparasitism is hindered by the fact that this particular life history trait is not known for many phylogenetically important taxa. One method of coping with this problem is to seek correlations between the ovipositor structure and this life history trait among taxa whose life history is known, and then to use this to infer the trait in species whose life history in unknown. In one group ...
