Effect of predation period on the functional response of Coccinella septempunctata Linn. (Coleoptera: Coccinellidae), a predator of Lipaphis erysimi Kalt. (Hemiptera: Aphididae)



Effect of predation period on the functional response of Coccinella septempunctata Linn. (Coleoptera: Coccinellidae), a predator of Lipaphis erysimi Kalt. (Hemiptera: Aphididae)



Journal of Advanced Zoology 111: 27-32



A laboratory study was carried out on the effects of various periods of predation on the functional response of Coccinella septempunctata and different densities of prey (Lipaphis erysimi). The rate of prey consumption was found to increase significantly with increase in the predation period and in prey density. More than 50% of prey individuals were consumed during the first 3 h. The predation pattern of C. septempunctata followed Holling's Type II equation.
