Table 2 Variables used to simulate the population dynamics which were related to the Wolbachia infection type of the two Ae. albopictus populations. Data are specifically related to SANG (= Y infection type) and ARwP (= X infection type) Ae. albopictus

From: Cytoplasmic incompatibility management to support Incompatible Insect Technique against Aedes albopictus
