We present and analyze a simple three-patch host-parasitoid model where population growth is discrete. The model gives solutions that are qualitatively similar to the stable large-amplitude patterns in space found in reaction-diffusion theory. In the context of host-parasitoid interactions, the large-amplitude portions of the solution can be thought of as(More)
