Spatial dynamics and cross-correlation in a transient predator – prey system

  title={Spatial dynamics and cross-correlation in a transient predator – prey system},
  author={Patrick C. Tobin and Ottar N. Bj\ornstad},
1. We examined spatiotemporal data in a transient, seasonal system involving a specialist predatory beetle, Carcinops pumilio (Erichson), and its prey, larval Musca domestica L. 2. Prior to beetle colonization, larval fly populations were highly spatially structured, but as adult predatory beetles immigrated and colonized the field, the beetles became increasingly clustered at local spatial scales, causing spatial decorrelation in the dynamics of their prey. Larval flies appeared to regain… CONTINUE READING
