Studies of population dynamics

  • Field studies examining how population dynamics of C. ohridella (e. g. flight activity, generation periods, mortality rate) vary among urban habitats (streets, parks, gardens) compared to a near-natural cultivated forest
  • Installation of pheromone traps at all sampling sites
  • Determination of species composition of beneficial insect communities (i.e., enemies of C. ohridella) in each habitat type
  • Comprehensive laboratory studies of growth and development of beneficial insects using climate chambers
