Conference call w/ Bob and Brett

  • So far no large noise in larval class alone, several potential mechanisms we may have missed so far:

Getting large noise in larva

  • Noise from egg class (due to nonlinear dynamics)
  • Nonlinearity in larval class due to large larva eating smaller ones
  • Unknown effect of more realistic aging/stage transitions.
  • Long transients? -- Experiments start with larva, pupa, adults to speed up transient period.
