What causes generation cycles in populations of stored-product moths?

Abstract:

1. Populations of stored-products moths such as the Indian meal moth (Plodia interpunctella) frequently show generation cycles, fluctuations with a period of approximately one generation. 2. Three age-structured models of stored-product moth dynamics were investigated to see which best accounted for the observed period and pattern of Plodia dynamics. 3. A model of Gurney, Nisbet and Lawton (1983) was modified to match Plodia biology. The model assumes uniform competition amongst larvae. It pr...
