Title: A unified degree day model describes survivorship of Copitarsia corruda Pogue & Simmons (Lepidoptera: Noctuidae) at different constant temperatures

Author: Gómez, N.N.; Venette, R.C.; Gould, J.R.; Winograd, D.F.;

Date: 2009

Source: Bulletin of Entomological Research. 99: 65-72.

Publication Series: Scientific Journal (JRNL)

Description: Predictions of survivorship are critical to quantify the probability of establishment by an alien invasive species, but survival curves rarely distinguish between the effects of temperature on development versus senescence. We report chronological and physiological age-based survival curves for a potentially invasive noctuid, recently described as Copitarsia corruda Pogue & Simmons, collected from Peru and reared on asparagus at six constant temperatures between 9.7 and 34.5°C. Copitarsia spp. are not known to occur in the United States but are routinely intercepted at ports of entry. Chronological age survival curves differ significantly among temperatures.

Keywords: Peru, invasion, chronological age, life table, physiological age, senescence
