From: Effect of the physiognomy of Attalea butyracea (Arecoideae) on population density and age distribution of Rhodnius prolixus (Triatominae)

Figure 4

Features of palm trees with similarities in their physiognomic structure (n = 40 palm trees). A) Population density (nymphs and adults) of Rhodnius prolixus by the microhabitat sampled in Attalea butyracea palm tree crowns. B) Stratification density of the developmental stages of Rhodnius prolixus in crowns of Attalea butyracea palm trees. C) Daily variations of the temperature and relative humidity in the three sampling sites on the crown of Attalea butyracea palm tree.
