Aggression between wild and laboratory-reared sterile males of the mediterranean fruit fly in a natural habitat (Diptera: Tephritidae)
Florida Entomologist 83 (1), 105-108
Abstract: The outcome of aggressive interactions between wild and lab-reared, sterile males of the Mediterranean fruit fly, Ceratitis capitata, was recorded under natural conditions in a fruit orchard on Maui, Hawaii. Success in aggression was independent of either male type (wild vs. sterile) or territorial status (resident vs. intruder).
