The fig - fig wasp mutualism is analysed and
some of the divergent features of the relationship between two African
fig species (Ficus natalensis leprieuri and F. ottoniifolia)
and their pollinating wasps (respectively: Alfonsiella natalensis,
later identified as Alfonsiella fimbriata) and Agaon
camerunensis and Agaon gabonensis (later identified as
belonging to genus Courtella) are compared through ecological,
ethological, morphological and evolutionary aspects.
