Summary 1  The effects of temperature and interspecific competition among two parasitoids (Aphytis maculicornis (=paramaculicornis) (Masi)–Coccophagoides utilis Doutt) of the olive scale (Parlatoria oleae (Colvee)) were examined, and the reason for the successful biological control of olive scale explained. 2  An age-structure distributed maturation time model of this system was developed that simplifies many of the details of prior physiologically based models. 3  Temperature… Expand

A regional analysis of weather mediated competition between a parasitoid and a coccinellid predator of oleander scale.
TLDR
Field data and simulation results suggested the coccinellid predator was the most important regulating agent of oleander scale in the mild climate of Albany, however, multiple linear regression analysis of simulation data across all ecological zones of California shows that the parasitoid A. chilensis is theMost important agent in suppressing oleanders scale densities in warmer climates, while the predator R. lophanthae increases scale density across all regions.

Ratio-dependent parasitism with Trissolcus basalis (Wollaston) (Hymenoptera: Scelionidae) on egg rafts of Nezara viridula (Linnaeus) (Hemiptera: Pentatomidae): effect of experimental variables and compatibility of ‘ratio’ and ‘Holling’ models
TLDR
A ratio model for parasitism rate was compatible with the data but the more explicit Holling ‘disc’ equation was also compatible because handling time was sufficiently large to make it sensitive to the ratio of parasitoids to hosts for the densities used. Expand
Parasitoid competitive displacement and coexistence in citrus agroecosystems: linking species distribution with climate.
TLDR
Previous literature on the behavior of Aphytis species in the laboratory under different temperature and humidity conditions are combined with field results to confirm the role of spatiotemporal weather conditions and seasonal changes in host stages on the variation of Apytis relative abundance and parasitoid coexistence. Expand
Prospective evaluation of the biological control of vine mealybug: refuge effects and climate
TLDR
The predictions of the model coincided well with field observations on vine mealybug, and clearly showed why the biological control will require additional species of natural enemies and/or why the size of the spatial and temporal refuges must be reduced. Expand
Preimaginal Development Response to Constant Temperatures in Hypera postica (Coleoptera: Curculionidae) : Picking the Best Model
TLDR
Immature survival and development of alfalfa weevil, Hypera postica (Gyllenhal) (Coleoptera: Curculionidae), were examined at 15 constant temperatures ranging from 9 to 37°C, although survival was low at both ends of the temperature range. Expand
A coffee agroecosystem model: II. Dynamics of coffee berry borer
TLDR
New field data from Colombia were used to test coffee fruiting phenology and the effect on CBB attack rates and age-structure population dynamics, and the effects of temperature and rainfall on the emergence of CBB adults were added. Expand
Climatic limits of pink bollworm in Arizona and California: effects of climate warming
TLDR
The distribution of pink bollworm is predicted to be restricted to the relatively frost-free cotton growing areas of Arizona and Southern California where it currently reaches pest status and the model predicts that extension of PBW's range into the Central Valley of California is unlikely. Expand
Climate change effects on poikilotherm tritrophic interactions
Species of plants and animals have characteristic climatic requirements for growth, survival and reproduction that limit their geographic distribution, abundance and interactions with other species.Expand
Temperature-dependent phenology and predation in arthropod systems
TLDR
A temperature-dependent, stage-based, discrete, cohort model of the population dynamics of an insect pest under pressure from a predator is developed and it is concluded that increasing variation in temperature results in a stronger relative effect on survivorship due to predation. Expand
Response of Trichogramma brassicae (Hym.: Trichogrammatidae) to temperature: Utilizing thermodynamic models to describe curvilinear development
TLDR
Temperature effects on the pre-adult development of Trichogramma brassicae were investigated on Sitotroga cerealella to predict possible effects of temperature on developmental rate, select the best period of time for inundative release and improve mass rearing protocols of this parasitoid wasp.

Factors affecting biological control of cassava mealybug by exotic parasitoids: a ratio-dependent supply-demand driven model.
TLDR
The functional and numerical responses of either parasitoid alone are insufficient to explain the observed dynamics of the mealybug and rainfall and its enhancement of the fungal pathogen Neozyites fumosa suppress CM numbers sufficiently during the wet season so that the parasitoids E. lopezi can regulate CM density at low levels during the dry season.

Oviposition and emergence of olive scale (Homoptera: Diaspididae) crawlers: regional degree-day forecasting model.
TLDR
Temperature-driven onset and rate of oviposition and egg hatch of the spring generation of the olive scale, Parlatoria oleae, in northern Israel was investigated and the model accurately predicted the onset of egg hatch during 2 yr consecutively in 1 tested plot. Expand
Studies of two parasites of olive scale, Parlatoria oleae (Colvée): IV. Biological control of Parlatoria oleae (Colvée) through the compensatory action of two introduced parasites
TLDR
There is strong evidence that the two parasites working together give better control of olive scale than does A. maculicornis working alone. Expand
Competitive Displacement and Biological Control in Parasitoids: A Model
TLDR
A stage-structured parasitoid-host model is presented in which the two parasitoids species are the same except for A. melinus's size-dependent advantage in sex allocation, which can account for the competitive displacement of A. lingnanensis in such a short time and the improvement in biological control. Expand
Studies of two parasites of olive scale, Parlatoria oleae (Colvée): III. The role of an autoparasitic aphelinid, Coccophagoides utilis Doutt, in the control of Parlatoria oleae (Colvée)
TLDR
The olive scale, Parlatoria oleae, was first found in California in 1934 and has since become a major pest and two species of parasites working together have exhibited the ability to give excellent control of olive scale. Expand
Use of Life Tables in a Bioclimatic Study of an Experimental Aphid‐Braconid Wasp Host‐Parasite System
TLDR
Although fish populations are greatly reduced by a year of drought, there is no immediate threat of their local extinction. Expand
Species response to global environmental change or why ecophysiological models are important: a reply to Davis et al.
TLDR
Davis et al. (1998) concluded that species interactions within a community will vary with temperature and that this has important consequences for species distribution and abundance, but whether their sweeping conclusions are supported by existing field data is questioned. Expand
Prospective modelling in biological control: an analysis of the dynamics of heteronomous hyperparasitism in a cotton-whitefly-parasitoid system
TLDR
The results indicate that a primary parasitoid can substantially suppress the cumulative abundance of whitefly through a growing season on cotton, but that the impact of an autoparasitoid is constrained by self-limitation. Expand
A PHYSIOLOGICALLY BASED TRITROPHIC PERSPECTIVE ON BOTTOM-UP-TOP-DOWN REGULATION OF POPULATIONS'
TLDR
The model explains the paradoxes of enrichment and of biological control that arise from the standard Lotka-Volterra models, and its qualitative predictions compare well to the general studies on biological control of the cassava mealybug on cassava by an exotic parasitoid. Expand

TLDR
The metapopulation dynamics of the African cassava food web is explored using a physiologically based tritrophic model that simulates the mass number dynamics of each plant or animal species in each patch and the movement of animals between patches. Expand
