Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Ordinary differential equation models for insecticide induced sublethal damage and delayed death in insect populations are considered. It is shown that such models with time-varying mortality rates provide excellent fits to experimental data for populations subjected to numerous levels of insecticide exposure. The effects on fecundity rates are also examined. (C) 2007 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
