Functional response ofTelenomus reynoldsi [Hym.: Scelionidae] at five constant temperatures and in an artificial plant arena

  title={Functional response ofTelenomus reynoldsi [Hym.: Scelionidae] at five constant temperatures and in an artificial plant arena},
  author={Ronald D. Cave and M. J. Gaylor},
The functional response ofTelenomus reynoldsi Gordh & Coker was determined at 5 constant temperatures using a dish arena. Functional response curves at all temperatures were of Holling's Type II. Handling rate increased linearly with increasing temperature, whereas the relationship of search rate to temperature was best described by a quadratic model. Search rate was highest at 32°C. Using Rogers' random parasite equation, analysis of the functional response in a more complex arena containing… CONTINUE READING
