Population dynamics of the beech caterpillar, Syntypistis punctatella, and biotic and abiotic factors
TLDR
Three different hypotheses are proposed to explain the periodic dynamics of the beech caterpillar population in Japan: the diversity–stability hypothesis, the resource concentration hypothesis, and the altitudinal soil nutrient hypothesis. Expand
Cyclicity and synchrony of historical outbreaks of the beech caterpillar,Quadricalcarifera punctatella (Motschulsky) in Japan
TLDR
This study illustrates the use of specific statistical methods for characterizing cyclicity and synchrony from crude records of the presence/absence of outbreaks of the beech caterpillar in northern Japanese prefectures from 1910-1993. Expand
Periodic Outbreaks of the Beech Caterpillar, Quadricalcarifera punctatella, and its Population Dynamics: the Role of Insect Pathogens
The beech caterpillar, Quadricalcarifera punctatella (Motschulsky) (Lepidoptera: Notodontidae), often causes serious defoliation in beech forests in Japan. Outbreaks have tended to occurExpand
Proceedings: population dynamics, impacts, and integrated management of forest defoliating insects
TLDR
The development of forest entomology in the International Union of Forest Research Organizations (IUFRO) is outlined in detail and the subjects of research included: damage to the forest caused by viruses, insects, and other animals, anthropogenic and inorganic influences, and prevention and control.

Seasonal and annual change of a folivorous insect guild in the Siebold's beech forests associated with outbreaks of the beech caterpillar, Quadricalcarifera punctatella (Motschulsky) (Lep., Notodontidae)
TLDR
Seasonal and annual change of folivorous insects of beech associated with outbreaks of the beech caterpillar, Quadricalcarifera punctatella, were investigated in northern Japan from 1988 through 1992 and indicate that delayed induced response of the Siebold beech caused by Q. punctatellA influenced not only the species itself but also other folivory insects. Expand
Diurnal change of adult behaviour, daily oviposition and influence of temperature on adult emergence and light trapping data of the beech caterpillar, Quadricalcarifera punctatella (Motsch.) (Lep., Notodontidae)
TLDR
Number of trap catches from 11–30 June was concluded to be a good parameter for comparing annual changes in adult densities in future studies because high temperatures promoted the emergence and flight activity of the adults. Expand
Influence of rainfall on feeding behavior, growth, and mortality of larvae of the beech caterpillar, Quadricalcarifera punctatella (Motschulsky) (Lep., Notodontidae)
TLDR
Investigation of the direct influence of rainfall on feeding behavior, growth, and mortality of larvae of the beech caterpillar found rainfall in young larval stages resulted in high mortality and a prolongation of the larvalperiod, and rainfall in late larval period curtailed body growth. Expand
