The assessment and the management of the risks linked to insect pests can be supported by the use of physiologically-based demographic models. These models are useful in population ecology to simulate the dynamics of stage-structured populations, by means of functions (e.g., development, mortality and fecundity rate functions) realistically representing the nonlinear individuals physiological responses to environmental forcing variables. Since density-dependent responses …

The fall armyworm, Spodoptera frugiperda (J.E. Smith), is an invasive pest threatening crop production and food security worldwide. High concerns are linked to the potential establishment of the species in Europe. The high migratory capacity of S. frugiperda causes concerns about the potential impacts of transient populations invading new areas from suitable hotspots. In the present work, we developed …

We wonder that, 3 years ago. Last week the paper with the findings went out to the public. We are glad to publish our results in Frontiers in Ecology and Evolution, explaining how the plant volatiles (Chemical Ecology) of companion crops mitigates Spodoptera frugiperda damage in maize crops. A paper worth to be read in …
