    'Staff publications' is the digital repository of Wageningen University & Research

    'Staff publications' contains references to publications authored by Wageningen University staff from 1976 onward.

    Publications authored by the staff of the Research Institutes are available from 1995 onwards.

    Full text documents are added when available. The database is updated daily and currently holds about 240,000 items, of which 72,000 in open access.

    We have a manual that explains all the features

Abstract Biological control of crop pests is affected by a broad range of organisms which need a variety of resources in the crop and non-crop elements in the landscape to complete their life cycles. The effect of enemies on the population dynamics of pests depends on enemy density and diversity, and is critically affected by spatial and temporal scales. Recent studies illustrate how models can help to bridge those scales and quantify: (1) the relationship between sink-source distance in the landscape and time of colonization; (2) the relationship between time of colonization and enemy impact on pest population dynamics; (3) the relationship between enemy impacts, crop damage, and economic loss. Such models help to predict the effect of landscape and crop management on the effectiveness of ecosystem services. They are indispensible tools for integrating information across spatial and temporal scales, and translate ecological thinking into economic valuation
