Oraciones de ejemplo
  • Parasitoids are both parasites and free-living predators; they spend part of their lives inside another animal and part on their own.
  • The adult parasitoid is free-living, and the main task of females is finding new hosts for the next generation.
  • However, exceptionally warm or dry conditions may result in higher mortality rates of the free-living stages of parasites (especially for those with direct life cycles) and offset some of the effects of more rapid development rates.
