Abstract

Responses of laboratory population of the azuki bean beetle Callosobruchus chinensis to temperature conditions of 30°C and 32°C are compared. Equilibrium population size was found to be lower at 32°C. A one-generation process examined by reproduction-curve experiments is divided into two consecutive life stages specified by different habitats, i.e., outside and inside beans. Modified logistic difference equations are used to describe these population-level responses at each life stages. Sensitivity analysis is used to determine parameters of importance, thus determining the main cause of the reduced equilibrium population size at 32°C. The reduction resulted from the decrease in maximum population size of emerged adults which have experienced inside-bean process. The application and limitation of this population-level analysis to different levels are discussed.
