Abstract

Stochastic difference equations are suggested for describing the dynamic relationships between plant - pest population in olive groves and abiotic factors. A maximum likehood method have been used for state and parameters estimation and some applications have been performed with field data. Regularizing techniques have been used for the study of time series residues of plant - pest data. The results obtained constitute a starting point for further research in order to forecast pest damage.
