Aphids on the World s Herbaceous Plants and Shrubs

Aphids are famous as pests of agriculture, horticulture and forestry, yet also they are the most biologically attention-grabbing teams of plant-feeding bugs, and hence have attracted the eye of biologists in lots of learn fields equivalent to ecology, biodiversity, body structure, behaviour and genetics.

0 based on four critical curve definition points. ACSTF is a soil temperature factor that affects potential and actual N-fixation rates. ACSTG is a soil temperature factor that affects nodule growth rate. FLDSUM is related to excess soil moisture and affects N-fixation rates. 0) FLDSUM = FLDSUM + DLAYR(I) * FLAYR * CURV(TYPFXW,FNFXW(1),FNFXW(2),FNFXW(3),FNFXW(4),EPORS) These factors are then divided by DNOD, the depth of the nodule zone, to yield the nodule growth and fixation factors, TNFIX, TNGRO, and FLDACT: TNFIX = ACSTF / DNOD TNGRO = ACSTG / DNOD FLDACT = FLDSUM / DNOD Other factors that are computed are SWFACT, a drought factor based on TURFAC (water stress factor), and NFXAGE, which determines the effect of canopy age on N growth rates: SWFACT = CURV(TYPFXD,FNFXD(1),FNFXD(2),FNFXD(3), FNFXD(4),TURFAC) NFXAGE = CURV(TYPFXA,FNFXA(1),FNFXA(2),FNFXA(3), FNFXA(4),DXR57) A running average of the last 8 days of water deficit factor (SWFACT) is kept.

The input data includes curve information for determining the effect of temperature, canopy age, dry soil, and wet soil on N fixation and nodule growth rates. 2 Seasonal Initialization Several variables are set to zero at the beginning of each season of simulation in the “Seasonal Initialization” section. 3 Rate/Integration The N2 fixation component in CROPGRO has been changed considerably since the earlier versions in 1992–1993. There is a thermal-time requirement for initiating first-nodule mass.
