Knowledge for a sustainable world

Andrew Westby

Professor Bob Cheke and Sanyi Tang just been awarded a certificate for the top cited article in the Elsevier published journal "Mathematical Bioscience" between 2008 and 2010. The article entitled "Models for integrated pest control and their biological implications" (doi:10.1016/j.mbs.2008.06.008) examines the use of mathematical models to clarify and predict some of the key factors (including host-parasitoid ratios, starting densities, timings of parasitoid releases, dosages and timings of insecticide applications and levels of host-feeding and parasitism) on the stability of host-parasitoid systems.
