  • 1 June 1979
In this study of arthropod predador-prey systems Michael Hassell shows how many of the components of predation may be simply modeled in order to reveal their effects on the overall dynamics of theExpand

Spatial structure and chaos in insect population dynamics
MOST environments are spatially subdivided, or patchy, and there has been much interest in the relationship between the dynamics of populations at the local and regional (metapopulation) scales1.Expand

The spatial dynamics of host-parasitoid systems
We consider models for host-parasitoid interactions in spatially patchy environments, where in each generation specified fractions of the host and parasitoid subpopulations in each patch move toExpand

Mutual Interference between Searching Insect Parasites
The theory of Nicholson (1933) and Nicholson & Bailey (1935) assumes that the searching efficiency of a parasite as measured by its 'area of discovery' is a constant and thus independent of both hostExpand
