Spatial and temporal patterns of odonate community composition and the effect of parasitism on community structure
The aim of this study is to use sampling of odonate larvae, exuviae and adults to develop a complete phenology of the odonate community on Mont Sainte-Hilaire, Québec, correlated with the patterns and fluctuation of parasitism over both spatial and temporal axes. Overall, this study will provide information on the importance of parasitism as a regulator of community structure.
