Early-season movement dynamics of phytophagous pest and natural enemies across a native vegetation-crop ecotone


There is limited understanding about the landscape factors influencing the spatio-temporal distribution of insects, and how these can be manipulated to suppress pest populations in crops. Theory suggests that the relative timing of pest and natural enemy arrival in crops may influence pest suppression; however there is a lack of data to substantiat... more

Using bi-directional interception traps we quantified the number of insects crossing an NV/crop ecotone, relative to a control crop/crop interface early in the growing season in two agricultural regions (one in New South Wales and one in Queensland). We used these data to infer patterns of insect movement.


Many thanks go to the land holders for allowing us access to their properties. This work was funded by the Grains Research and Development Corporation as part of the Pest Suppressive Landscapes project (CSE00051). The project was lead by Nancy Schellhorn (CSIRO) and this data set was contributed by Hazel Parry, Mick Neave (CSIRO), Jamie Hopkinson, (DAFFQ), Myron P. Zalucki (UQ), and Felix Bianchi. The project team also included Svetlana Micic, Art Diggle, Mike Grimm, Tony Dore (DAFWA), Paul Yeoh, Andrew Hulthen (CSIRO), Zara Hall, Adam Quade, and Matt Davis (DAFFQ). The aphid identifications were checked by Cameron Brumley (DAFWA).

CLSD-1180.4 GRDC IPM in Landscapes


Natural pest control is an important ecosystem service which directly benefits grain growers. There is strong interest in developing IPM at large spatial scales because mobile pests do not recognise field or farm boundaries, and attempts at controlling them using field based approaches have often failed. Furthermore, it appears that some landscapes... more
