Table 2: Partial correlations (rab,c, where a and b are the correlated variables and c the controlled variable) between nectar (N), pollen (P), resin (R), garbage (G), and total number of incoming trips (TE) and temperature (T) and relative humidity (RH); and Spearman correlations (rab, where a and b are the correlated variables) between temperature (T) and relative humidity (RH), and between nectar (N), pollen (P), resin (R), garbage (G), and total number of incoming trips (TE) in the reproductive phase and in the diapause, in colonies 1 and 2 of Plebeia remota.
