From: Biology and functional response of the predator, Dortus primarius (Distant) (Hemiptera: Miridae) preying on Frankliniella schultzei (Trybom) (Thysanoptera: Thripidae)

Functional response models Dortus primarius
5th Instar Adult
Type-I 176.6 180.02
Rogers random predator 178.6 182.02
Holling’s type II 178.6 182.02
