Odor Plumes and How Insects Use Them
TLDR
Odor plumes and how insects use them, Odor plume and how Insects use them and how animals and birds use them are discussed. Expand
POPULATION DYNAMICS OF GYPSY MOTH IN NORTH AMERICA
TLDR
The syn­chronous behavior of gypsy moth populations over fairly large regions sug­gests that weather conditions drive the system in some manner, but the mechanisms remain obscure. Expand
Effects of a Biological Control Introduction on Three Nontarget Native Species of Saturniid Moths
TLDR
The results suggest that reported declines of silk moth populations in New England may be caused by the importation and introduction of C. concinnata, a generalist parasitoid fly introduced repeatedly to North America from 1906 to 1986 as a biological control agent against 13 pest species. Expand
Interactions Among Gypsy Moths, White‐footed Mice, and Acorns
TLDR
A novel bootstrap regression method is used that adjusts for spatial and temporal autocorrelation in the time series data to demonstrate effects of increases in gypsy moth density associated with declines in density of the white-footed mouse. Expand
Role of winter temperature and climate change on the survival and future range expansion of the hemlock woolly adelgid (Adelges tsugae) in eastern North America
TLDR
It is shown how, in the future, rising winter temperatures due to climate change are likely to remove the conditions currently limiting adelgid spread, and facilitate the northward expansion as more suitable habitat becomes available. Expand
Dissecting components of population‐level variation in seed production and the evolution of masting behavior
Koenig, W. D., Kelly, D., Sork, V. L., Duncan, R. P., Elkinton, J. S., Peltonen, M. S. and Westfall, R. D. 2003. Dissecting components of population-level variation in seed production and theExpand
Pathogen‐Driven Outbreaks in Forest Defoliators Revisited: Building Models from Experimental Data
TLDR
These models suggest that pathogen‐driven outbreaks in forest defoliators occur partly because newly hatched insect larvae have higher average susceptibility than do older larvae, and show that a combination of seasonality and delays between infection and death can lead to unstable cycles in the absence of a stabilizing mechanism. Expand
Life-Table construction and analysis in the Evaluation of Natural Enemies
TLDR
Evaluations of this type quantify the impact of the natural enemy largely in terms of the amount of mortality caused by an agent to a given generation or set of generations of the host and the consequent overall reduction in host density; however, these evaluations do not provide descriptions of other sources of mortality that act together with the naturalenemy. Expand
EFFECTS OF SYNCHRONY WITH HOST PLANT ON POPULATIONS OF A SPRING-FEEDING LEPIDOPTERAN
TLDR
The net effects of phenology on insect population growth thus depend largely on natural-enemy effects, and the large variability in outcome of plant-herbivore interactions and contribute to the high variability in population size of spring-feeding species. Expand
Pathogenicity and virulence.
TLDR
A large number of literatures, including plant pathology, invertebrate pathology, evolutionary biology, and medicine, found most define pathogenicity as the broader term, which incorporates virulence, which readily applies to both lethal and non-lethal diseases. Expand
