    • Abstract


      The present paper deals with the life and fecundity tables for the cerambycid borer,Olenecamptus bilobus (Fabricius). Under a given set of conditions and food supply, the population of this species increased with an infinitesimal and a finite rate. The population increased by 20·41 times between two successive generations and 86·42 days were taken to complete one generation. The adults constituted only 1·29% to the population of the stable age, while eggs, larvae, pupae and dormant adults contributed to the extent of 24·95, 68·22, 4·38 and 1·16% respectively.
