This volume presents research and discussion papers which consider the analysis of population processes and modelling of the population dynamics related to beneficial predators and parasitoids in agroecosystems. Various papers are concerned with the influence of behaviour on population dynamics and the effectiveness of natural enemies in pest control, including the biological control of aphids by ladybird beetles; the effect of demethoate on ground beetles; and the ability of carabids to detect patches of their aphid prey. Other authors discuss pest/predator population dynamics; temporal density and activity fluctuations; climate change and population dynamics; simulation of population dynamics; analysis of spatial association between species; and the use of single-species spatially explicit models.
