Spatially mismatched trophic dynamics: cyclically outbreaking geometrids and their larval parasitoids.

Abstract

For trophic interactions to generate population cycles and complex spatio-temporal patterns, like travelling waves, the spatial dynamics must be matched across trophic levels. Here, we propose a spatial methodological approach for detecting such spatial match-mismatch and apply it to geometrid moths and their larval parasitoids in northern Norway, where… (More)
