Studies on the Age-Specific Fecundity and Intrinsic Rate of Natural Increase in Goniozus sensorius Gordh (Hymenoptera: Bethylidae)


  • Fredrick Institute of Plant Protection and Toxicology (FIPPAT), 601301, India


Life table data were calculated for Goniozus sensorius Gordh on Dinphania indica (Saunders). The ovipositing female survived for a mean period of 8 days and produced a mean progeny of 7.51 Individuals each day with a sex-ratio of 1:4.1 (M:F). The Intrinsic rate of increase (rm) was 0.185 per female per day. The net reproductive rate (Ro)was 21.93 and net generation time (T) 16.70 days.
