Castellón E.G. About the author


Data on male, female and immature production during the first and second generation and analysis of nests which have a deficiency in number of emerged adults, indicating a possible migration or the formation of periodical swarms are presented. Evidences of monoginic-polyginic cicles are discussed here. These subjects studied make up a series of alternate strategies adopted by S. surinama to insure and guarantee that the production of new individuals and their dispersion is sucessful, as a counter to pressures from predators, parasites and Nature, insuring in this manner the survival of the species.
