Assessment of stalk borer (Lepidoptera: Noctuidae) population dynamics by using logistic development curves and partial life tables



Assessment of stalk borer (Lepidoptera: Noctuidae) population dynamics by using logistic development curves and partial life tables



Environmental Entomology, 161: 296-303



Development and survival of larvae of Papaipema nebris under natural conditions were investigated by intensively sampling non-crop, grassy areas and bordering maize rows in Iowa. The logistic function was used to derive development curves based on day-degree C accumulations. The curves predicted the proportion of larvae in each instar. Comparison of development curves for 1984 and 1985 indicated that other factors, in addition to temperature, played a role in regulating population development.
