oa Journal of the Entomological Society of Southern Africa - Acarina associated with Protea flowers in the Cape Province

 

Abstract

The flowers of the proteas are in many-flowered, usually solitary, heads enclosed in an involucre of numerous imbricate bracts. The protea plants are shrubs or trees, each of which may be regarded as a separate ecological mesostand composed of several microstands. The entire protea community, consisting of many plants, constitutes a macrostand. Each microstand, the protea heads, harbours an animal microassociation which - especially in the tree forms recur frequently, but because of their relatively small size, the total area covered by the different minor stands is small.
