Mathematical modeling is used to investigate control of the invasive aquatic plant Myriophyllum spicatum L. by the native watermilfoil weevil Euhrychiopsis lecontei Dietz. An age-structured population model with discrete development class is used to separate the destructive activity of Euhrychiopsis lecontei Dietz larvae from the relatively benign activity of the other developmental stages. Empirical model behavior is evaluated and agrees with expected system characteristics. Simulation results… CONTINUE READING
