Abstract
The recent development of geographic information systems (GIS) provides new avenues
for analysing spatial patterns in insect populations. Field survey data, along with GIS and statistical
models were used to predict the distribution of Chilo partellus (Swinhoe) (Lepidoptera: Crambidae)
and Cotesia flavipes Cameron (Hymenoptera: Braconidae) in Ethiopia. The results obtained suggested
that the distributions of Ch. partellus and Co. flavipes were affected by rainfall and temperature. The
predicted distributions of Ch. partellus and Co. flavipes were similar. Validation of predicted values is
discussed.
