Territorial behaviour of male Nannothemis bella (Uhler) (Anisoptera: Libellulidae)


Territorial behaviour of male Nannothemis bella (Uhler) (Anisoptera: Libellulidae)



Canadian Journal of Zoology 635: 1010-1016



ISSN/ISBN: 0008-4301

DOI: 10.1139/z85-150

Male N. bella (Uhler) dragonflies are territorial at the breeding site. On the basis of the male behavioral time budgets, the species can be regarded as territorial percher. Those acts involved in territorial maintenance (patroling and fighting) are more closely related to territorial dimensions than are those not concerned with the territory (feeding). Territoriality appears closely related to some aspect of the water area within a territory, as maintenance and defense behavior vary most consistently with the size of this area. Territorial size increases as the season progresses. Defensive behavior is directed at both conspecifics and a heterospecific, Leucorrhinia frigida. The usefulness of a marking technique for dragonflies was tested statistically.
