Fig. 3

Effects of parasitism on Ae. albopictus proportions. The proportion of Ae. albopictus when varying parasitism parameters. For all subplots, the right quadrants (I and IV) are the tire environment where there is a greater competitive effect on Ae. triseriatus than on Ae. albopictus; the left quadrants (II and III) are the treehole environment where the reverse is true; the upper quadrants (I and II) have high parasite effects on Ae. triseriatus; the lower quadrants (III and IV) have a low parasite effect on Ae. triseriatus. All three Ae. albopictus parasitism parameters—\(\gamma _{b_a}\), \(\gamma _{m_a}\), and \(\gamma _{d_a}\)—are varied. All subplots vary mortality on the y-axis while the left subplots (a, c, e) have fecundity on the x-axis, and the right subplots (b, d, f) have development time on the x-axis. Each row fixes the third parasite parameter as not varied: 1 (a, b), 3 (c, d), 5 (e, f). Lines distinguish between different outcome categories. For example, yellow is when the proportion of Ae. albopictus exceeds 0.8
