The Spatial and Temporal Dynamics of Host-Parasitoid Interactions
TLDR
This paper presents a simple framework for modeling the interactions between hosts and Parasitoids and describes the metapopulations of Hosts and parasitoids.
New Inductive Population Model for Insect Parasites and its Bearing on Biological Control
TLDR
Mutual interference between searching insect parasites provides theoretical support for current biological control practices and helps clarify the role of ‘spatially aggregating’ immune defences.
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.
The spatial dynamics of host-parasitoid systems
TLDR
A remarkable range of dynamical behaviour is exhibited by a mathematically explicit model with constant host reproductive rate, deterministically unstable local dynamics and dispersing hosts and parasitoids that only move to nearest-neighbour patches in a density-independent way.
STABILITY IN INSECT HOST-PARASITE MODELS
TLDR
If the simplest case where the parasite population is specific and synchronized temporally with its host population, the following generalized model for a host-parasite interaction is considered.
