PATTERN OF POPULATION FLUCTUATION OF CHRYSOCORIS STOLLII WOLF

[INSECTA: HEMIPTERA] IN A NATURAL ECOSYSTEM

Parbati Chatterjee, Narayan Ghorai

Abstract


ABSTRACT

 

Population dynamics of Chrysocoris stollii Wolf was studied in a natural undisturbed ecosystem. The analysis of early pre-monsoon and post-monsoon data show very similar fluctuations. Day-wise data for July to November, 2010 on the different stages of life history show no correlation among the stages and the fluctuation in any stage is solely dependent on the prevailing biotic and abiotic factors.


Keywords


KEYWORD: Population fluctuation, correlation, natural ecosystem, Chrysocoris stollii.
