Integrative research in population dynamics (Sabbatical Fellow)

Principal Investigators:

William W. Murdoch

I propose to write, with two co-authors, a monograph that will present general theory for the dynamics of parasitoid-host interactions. The book will be a synthesis of both theory and empirical data. The theory incorporates realistic aspects of host life histories, parasitoid decision-making, and seasonal and spatial processes. Where possible, the book will extend results to other consumer-resource interactions, especially predator-prey interactions. It will aim to give useful insight into the biological control of insect pests.... more
