A life table examination of growth rate and age structure trade-offs in Mediterranean fruit fly populations

A life table examination of growth rate and age structure trade-offs in Mediterranean fruit fly populations

Fruit flies of economic importance Proceedings of the CEC/IOBC International Symposium, Athens, Greece, 16-19 November 1982: 315-320

A demographic analysis in the USA of data on a population of the fruit pest Ceratitis capitata (Wied.) showed that the fraction of a population in any one stage was little related to the duration or survival rate of that stage. Adult fecundity determined the internal composition of the population.
