Density dependence and noise determine the long-term dynamics of two species of lady beetle (Coleoptera : Coccinellidae : Epilachninae) in the Indonesian tropics

Abstract:

1. The long-term dynamics of two beetles (Epilachna vigintioctopunctata and Epilachna enneasticta) from Indonesia are analysed using descriptive time-series statistics and mechanistic time-series models. 2. Statistical analysis of the time series reveals that the dynamics of E. vigintioctopunctata are underpinned by a second order density-dependent [AR(2)] process, which is consistent between sites. Similarly, the dynamics of E. enneasticta are also described by a second order density-depende...
