  1. Shown are mean values with standard deviations in parenthesis based on 50 simulated networks. We used 1996 joined parameters (see Table 2). The length of the season is the number of good days only and the first row shows the observed data for the 1996 network. The 6th column shows the maximum number of insects present in a single day.
