Locust reporting The aims of a reporting system 7. B DD calculating based on maximum-minimum temperature. The integral calculation based on hours temperature was used to calculate the insect development rate considered the effects of low temperatures in the spring and high temperatures in the summer Fig.

This method has solved the problem of how to set the initial values as we have 24 temperature data each day, it has eliminated the error by the Briere model, Lactin model, and several other popular models [6] , [32] and got an exact solution [17] — [18] , [35]. We have conducted the concept of degree-hours to calculate DD, which is more precise and available in field conditions. In theory, using degree-half an hours or degree-minutes to calcualte DD would be more accurancy. Unfortunately, they need cumbersome sampling processes.

Then it is better for us to take degree-hours in field studies, because it has simplified the overall calculation process and enhanced the precision of 0. Thus, the integral method could have broad applications in insect forecasting and predicting. The overflow temperature did not accelerate the development rate of locusts Fig.

Empirical DD values are not absolutely constant, even if the feeding environment and all other environmental influences are the same. Environmental influences other than temperature, such as food, population density, and all specifics, influence the number of DD, and, in addition, development rates sometimes deviate slightly from linearity. However, the number of DD to reach maturity is constant to be of biological interest. It implies that the linearity of development rate as a function of temperature is more than a statistical first approximation: it seems a biological property.

Therefore, it is a biological question how linearity of development rate is caused [10]. So we proposed a standard DD calculating method based on studied the biological property of the oriental migratory locust. In the present study, invalid DD i.

We analyzed the life history of L. Results showed that the overflow DD and ineffective DD for egg-laying was 38 and heat units, respectively Fig. In field, we predicted hatchlings emergence mostly by air temperature as we lacked ground temperature data, so the DD was DD when only used air temperature the dashed line.

Instead, when we used ground temperature the solid line to calcualte DD for eggs, the total DD for migratory locust was heat units based on hours integral calculation. In addition, we predicted hatchlings emergence mostly by air temperature as we lacked ground temperature data in field, so the DD was heat units when only based on air temperature Fig. To further investigate locust voltinism in our growth chamber experiments Table 3 , we recalculated the actual DD in each chamber by the imporved DD model. They could produce 0. Thus, we considered there was no difference between them, because the oriental migratory locusts were unable to breed in BQ, the same as RA, QZ, and QS.

For the overflow DD in table 6 , they were not revealing the actual values in each location. We have set the hours temperature changes as Fig. It is known that temperature different with latitude moves, i.

Thus, we speculated the overflow DD would be higher than the calculated values in Table 6 , especially in southern China. For applying our model, we need to monitor the hours temperature changes of migratory locust at different locations in future. In this report, we study various characteristics of the temperature response of the migratory locust including overflow temperature and the effective temperature requirements for egg-laying. They are defined as invalid DD which are the key factors that affect the prediction of migratory locust occurrence and result in DD nonlinear increasing with generations arising in field.

Moreover, we propose an integral calculation method to calculate the DD of migratory locust, which also can be used to calculate overflow DD. This metod records h temperature as the basic data to simulate the daily temperature changes and the accuracy is higher than using the daily mean, maximum and minimum temperatures in the data simulation. We also introduce the concept of degree-hours, which improved the accuracy of the DD calculation in areas with temperature variations.

Thirdly, to eliminate the calculating error by traditional DD model, we improve it by studying temperature response of the migratory locust and proposing integral calculation method. Then we constructed a new DD model as:. The new model is according with the principle of the traditional DD model, meanwhile it would be more precisely when forecasting the occurrence period of migratory locust.

This method can also be used to predict the occurrence period for other pests. China for their helpful suggestions. Conceived and designed the experiments: ZZ XT. Analyzed the data: XT ZL.
