Ecological parameter: forewing length
Parameter group: life & body related parameters
This parameter lists the length (minimum and maximum values) of male and female anterior wings in caddisflies (Trichoptera) according to Malicky (2004). Forewing length might serve as surrogate information for the dispersal ability of species.
Note: if only one value was available in Malicky (2004), it is shown as minimum length.
