The large pine aphid,Cinara pinea lives exclusively onPinus species, where it feeds on the foliated shoots of the current and previous year. The paper describes the development of a computer model designed to simulate the aphid’s population dynamics on saplings in the controlled environment of the laboratory, i.e. in the absence of natural enemies. The model was able to account for about 80% of the variation in aphid numbers within and between trees over a three month period. Sensitivity…

TLDR
A computer model designed to simulate the field population dynamics of the large pine aphid, Cinara pinea, found that tree quality effects are capable of restricting aphid numbers to within field-observed limits over a period of years.
Interannual dynamics of aerial and arboreal green spruce aphid populations
TLDR
The model provides confirmation that alate populations of spruce aphids, upon which a number of other extensive studies have been based, are ultimately influenced by similar endogenous and climatic factors and that they are a reasonable proxy for aphids on trees.
Spatial and temporal density dependence in a population of melon aphid, Aphis gossypii Glover (Homoptera: Aphididae), on established and sentinel taro plants
A study carried out across 33 weeks in a patch of taro, Colocasia esculenta L., quantified demographic parameters and density-dependent processes for a population of melon aphid, Aphis gossypii
Phyllosphere Ecology in a Changing Environment: The Role of Insects in Forest Ecosystems
A major challenge to understanding the role of species in ecosystems (Lawton 1994) is to collect and filter those pieces of information from different levels of organization that are likely to affect
A MODEL TO ANALYZE WEATHER IMPACT ON APHID POPULATION DYNAMICS: AN APPLICATION ON SWALLOWTAIL CATASTROPHE MODEL
TLDR
Simulated results of the program suggest that some catastrophic movements like sudden jumps happening in growth of wheat aphid populations can clearly be explained by considering overall weather effect as the weather factor for population analysis models.
Insects, Infestations, and Nutrient Fluxes
Forest ecosystems are characterized by a high temporal and spatial variability in the vertical transfer of energy and matter within the canopy and the soil, or, more generally within the above- and
Foraging activity and dietary spectrum of wood ants (Formica rufa group) and their role in nutrient fluxes in boreal forests
TLDR
Monitoring three different‐sized wood ant mounds over a 3‐year period in Finnish boreal forests dominated by Norway spruce to assess the seasonal temperature dependency of ant activity concluded that honeydew foragers rely on temperature dependence for survival.

The role of intra-specific mechanisms and predation in regulating the numbers of the lime aphid, Eucallipterus tiliae L.
SummaryAnalysis of changes in numbers of the lime aphid, Eucallipterus tiliae L., reveals that there is an overcompensated density dependent factor acting within years, and an inverse density
Population Dynamics of the Cabbage Aphid, Brevicoryne brassicae (L.)
TLDR
Evidence presented, suggests that syrphid predation was largely responsible for the major midseason changes in the rate of increase of the aphid, and was probably responsible for population declines in the autumn.
Host plant and crowding effects in the induction of alatae in the large pine aphid, Cinara pinea
TLDR
Alate virginoparae of Cinara pinea occur on Scots pine trees only during June and early July, when population numbers are at their highest, and maternal experience of crowding has no effect on the nymphal response.
Intra‐specific mechanisms in relation to the natural regulation of numbers of Aphis fabae Scop
TLDR
Experiments in a glasshouse and in field cages indicated the success with which an A. fabae population adapts to and exploits a growing plant.
THE INFLUENCE OF POPULATION DENSITY ON THE FLIGHT BEHAVIOUR OF THE LIME APHID, EUCALLIPTERUS TILIAE
The effects of high population density on the flight behaviour of laboratory − reared lime aphid virginoparae are described. The aphids show a heightened flight response to direct crowding and to the
Laboratory studies on aggregation, size and fecundity in the black bean aphid, Aphis fabae Scop.
TLDR
When aphids are overcrowded or feed on host-plants of poor quality, many aphids reach maturity that might otherwise fail to mature because of the ability of the species to produce viable adults of a great variety of size, including very small adults.
On the significance of post‐reproductive life in aphids
TLDR
It has been noted for some time that in several aphid species adult virginoparae may live for a considerable period of time after reproduction has ceased, and why only the larger aphids with the greater reproductive performances continue to live beyond reproduction is unclear.
The Role of Imported Parasites in the Biological Control of the Spotted Alfalfa Aphid in Southern California in 1957
TLDR
Coccinellids appeared to play the most important role in the biological control of the aphid in all three fields, and the alfalfa harvesting process appeared to have an adverse effect on the parasites, particularly in midsummer.
