Theoretical approaches to forensic entomology: I. Mathematical model of postfeeding larval dispersal
Abstract: An overall theoretical approach to model phenomena of interest for forensic entomology is advanced. Efforts are concentrated in identifying biological attributes at the individual,Expand

Dynamics of a mathematical model of Chrysomya megacephala (Diptera: Calliphoridae).
The laboratory population dynamics of Chrysomya megacephala (F.) was explored with a mathematical model of density-dependent growth. Fecundity and survival decreased significantly as a function ofExpand

Spatio-temporal dynamics and transition from asymptotic equilibrium to bounded oscillations in Chrysomya albiceps (Diptera, Calliphoridae).
The sensitivity of parameters that govern the stability of population size in Chrysomya albiceps and describe its spatial dynamics was evaluated in this study. The dynamics was modeled using aExpand

A review of postfeeding larval dispersal in blowflies: implications for forensic entomology
Immature and adult stages of blowflies are one of the primary invertebrate consumers of decomposing animal organic matter. When the food supply is consumed or when the larvae complete theirExpand

The dynamics of intraguild predation in Chrysomya albiceps Wied. (Diptera: Calliphoridae): interactions between instars and species under different abundances of food.
The pattern of larval interaction in blowflies confined with Chrysomya albiceps Wied. and C. rufifacies Maquart can be changed in response to the predatory behaviour of the two species to aExpand

Larval predation on different instars in blowfly populations
During its larval stage, Chrysomya albiceps (Diptera: Calliphoridae) is a facultative predator on other blowflies. In this study, we evaluated the predation by third instar larvae of C. albiceps onExpand

Stochastic dynamics in exotic and native blowflies: an analysis combining laboratory experiments and a two-patch metapopulation model
In this study we explored the stochastic population dynamics of three exotic blowfly species, Chrysomya albiceps, Chrysomya megacephala and Chrysomya putoria, and two native species, CochliomyiaExpand

Cannibalistic Behavior and Functional Response in Chrysomya albiceps (Diptera: Calliphoridae)
Chrysomya albiceps is a facultative predator and cannibal species during the larval stage. Very little is known about cannibalism and prey size preference, especially in blowflies. The purpose ofExpand

Larval dispersion in Chrysomya megacephala, Chrysomya putoria and Cochliomyia macellaria (Dipt., Calliphoridae)
Horizontal and vertical frequency distribution of larvae in three species of Calliphoridae were studied. Correlation between horizontal and vertical dispersion and larval size was also assessed. TheExpand

The spatial dynamics of native and introduced blowflies (Dipt., Calliphorodae)
The spatial dynamics of three blowfly species was investigated using a spatially extended model of density‐dependent population growth and the results indicate an overall stabilizing effect.Expand
