The choice and limitations of parameters used in establishing bio meteorological models

Bulletin OEPP 10(2): 53-60
The choice and limitations of parameters used in establishing bio meteorological models
The establishment of a biometeorological model may either take account of biological phenomena or limit itself to practical considerations. In the 1st case, sophisticated data acquisition systems are required for both meteorological and biological data, and a computer is required to prove the statistical validity of any proposed relations. In the 2nd case, fairly simple observations and equipment are sufficient. Both aspects are closely linked and complementary. The climate at a given site may vary from 1 yr to the next and sudden changes are common during control periods. Only a thorough study of the effects of meteorological incidents on organisms (host, predator or parasite) will show the possible limits to development. Climatological studies also show the principal elements which must be observed and measured and the critical thresholds for each. Well-equipped laboratories can undertake the 1st task, leaving others closer to nature and practice to use the results obtained. This succession provides the means for effective pest control.
