Abstract

Several common dragonfly species perch at different heights. Using dowels as perches and simple chi-square tests, this pattern of resource partitioning can be described quickly and easily. Additional experiments can examine the effect of interspecific competition on perch selection, and the relationships between perching height, body size, and wing aerodynamics.
