Saussure Activity

However the activity involves the capacity to interact with the laborers and the environment to capture resources necessary to determine the complete development of its colonies (WILSON, 1971). This strategy can be evaluated in the evolutivo process of the eussocialidade, a time that each group makes use of peculiar techniques for attainment of food, material for nest construction and water (OSTER and WILSON, 1978). DONNELL & JEANNE (1990 and 1992) had analyzed, respectively, the individual specialization in the fodder plant and if the success of the forrageadoras increases with the occidentalis experience of fodder plant in Polybia, and had affirmed that the majority of the forrageadoras is specialized in collecting an only material and that the fodder plant success increases with the age. GIANNOTTI et al., (1995) studying the activity fodder plant of colonies of You polished lanio lanio Fabricius, 1775 had verified that in the hot and humid station the forrageio if initiates for return of 6h extending itself until the 19 h, being that of 10h to 11h, a bigger intensity in the forrageadora activity occurs, already in the cold station and dries the activity if it initiates to the 8:30 and one locks in it the 17:14, with the 13 peak of 12h to h. On the other hand, GOBBI (1977), analyzing the activity forrageadora of You polished versicolor Oliver, 1791 described that this wasp started its activity for return of 8h arriving until the o to entardecer (17h).

The forrageado material as in other wasps is similar in Mischocyttarus extinctus (RAPOSO-FILHO, 1981) and Michocyttarus drewseni (JEANNE, 1972). Few studies on the fodder plant had been effected for the Mischocyttarus sort. JEANNE (1972) analyzed the behavior of nectar fodder plant, canine tooth, material of construction and water of M. drewseni. CORNELIUS (1993) tested the influence of the visual and olfativos stimulatons in the capture of flavitarsis female prisoners of M. DONNELL (1998) investigated the effect of the hierarchic position and the polietismo in the forrageadora activity of M. mastigophorus. The objective of this work was to identify to the flight-gamma of Mischocyttarus (Mischocyttarus) drewseni Saussure, 1857 in the phases of the cycle of life of the colonies and to describe the place of nest building in the Park of the Cajueiros in Aracaju, IF.
