Insect metapopulation dynamics

Abstract:

Metapopulation ecology has developed to explain the population dynamics that occur in spatially structured landscapes. In this study, I combined an empirical laboratory approach, using metapopulation microcosms of Callosobruchus maculatus and its endospecific parasitoid Anisopteromalus calandrae, with mathematical population models in order to investigate several fundamental metapopulation processes.

Population dynamics in these systems can be studied at two scales; the local patch-w...
