Movie of spatio-temporal map sequences showing the diamondback moth, Plutella xylostella, colonising canola crops in South Australia between 2014 and 2016. Circles represent sentinel canola crops and show the presence (filled circles) or absence (open circles) of immature P. xylostella life stages. Map colours represent climate suitability for population growth of the species based on a CLIMEX model (Li 2012), scaled from 0 (unsuitable) to 1 (highly suitable).
