Abstract:

The research was conducted in the Biocontrol Research and Production Centre of Jawaharlal Nehru Krishi Vishwavidyalaya Jabalpur (M.P.) to work out the predatory potential of spider Synema decoratum (Araenae: Thomisidae) against Spodoptera litura (Lepidoptera: Noctuidae). The experiment was carried in Completely Randomized Design (CRD) with ten replications. The studies revealed that the predatory potential of spiders differed from 30 to 100% i.e. the feeding rate of the spider at different prey density ranged from 1 to 3.05 tobacco caterpillars/day. Further, the logistic analysis showed that S. decoratum fall under III type of the functional response, according to its species and guild functions.
