Density-Dependent Nematode Seasonal Multiplication Rates and Overwinter Survivorship: A Critical Point Model

Abstract

Nematode multiplication rates Pf /Pi and overwinter survivorship (Pi2/Pfl) for Meloidogyne incognita were both adequately described by negative exponential models, indicating density dependence in each case. Density dependence of the multiplication rates is mediated by resource limitation and host damage; in survivorship rates it may be mediated by… (More)
