Symposium: Insect Behavioral Ecology--'91: Functional Response, Reproductive Function and Movement Rate of a Grazing Herbivore: The Citrus Rust Mite on the Orange

J. C. Allen, Y. Yang, J. L. Knapp, P. A. Stansly


A model of the attack rate for a grazing herbivore, the citrus rust mite, is obtained as a Type 2 functional response analogous to Holling's disc equation. The attack rate is given by A@? = cx@? 1 + ct@
