Periodic local disturbance in host-parasitoid metapopulations: host suppression and parasitoid persistence.

Abstract:

Within many agricultural systems, insect pests and their natural enemies are forced to persist as a metapopulation, continuously recolonizing patches following disturbance through harvesting or spraying with insecticides. Despite the need to understand factors influencing biocontrol success, few theoretical studies of host-parasitoid interactions have examined the potential impact of local disturbance within a metapopulation framework. Here, we add periodic local mortality to series of classi...
