On the distribution type of the common cabbage butterfly in the cabbage field during the outbreak in 1952.



On the distribution type of the common cabbage butterfly in the cabbage field during the outbreak in 1952.



Oyo Kontyu 9(1): 73-76



While the eggs and larvae were confined mostly to the corners or the periphery of the field in early and late spring, they were found distributed more uniformly over whole field at the peak of the outbreak. They were found uniformly distributed over single plants, no preference to any part of the plant was observable. Prior to the peak of the outbreak, the frequency curves of distribution of the eggs and larvae were somewhat askew and allied to those of Poisson's or Polya-Eggenberger's distribution. But this was diminished at the peak of the outbreak and approached a more nearly normal distribution. At the peak of the outbreak, the butterfly was observed to oviposit as well on outdoor cruciferous weeds to a large extent; this was considered to be due to rapid increase of butterfly population and the simultaneous decrease of cruciferous vegetables in the field.
