Abstract

An instance of medium-range migration by Rhopalosiphum maidis (Fitch) and of long-range migration by Spodoptera frugiperda (J. E. Smith) are documented and the weather systems that made the migrations possible are detailed. Although both species were carried beyond their northern limit for overwinter survival and little damage ensued, the usefulness of synoptic weather analysis in explaining sudden population increases is shown.

Les auteurs présentent un cas de migration moyenne par Rhopalosiphum maidis (Fitch) et de migration étendue par Spodoptera frugiperda (J. E. Smith) et, en plus, un rapport détaillé des conditions météorologiques nécessaires aux migrations. Bien que les deux espèces aient été portées au-delà de la limite septentrionale de leur répartition, elles ont survécu l’hiver sans grands dommages. Les auteurs montrent l’utilité de la météorologie synoptique pour expliquer un accroissement soudain de population.
