  • SUMMARY (1) Three forms of density-dependent parasitoid sex ratios are discussed: (a) where sex ratio is a function of the size of the adult female population (P), (b) where sex ratio depends on the ratio of females to hosts (P/N) and (c) the case of heteronomous hyperparasitoids, where sex ratio is related to the frequency of encounters with parasitized and unparasitized hosts (yielding male and female progeny, respectively). (2) The dynamic properties of difference equation models including… CONTINUE READING
