In this manuscript, we present model results from eight locations over 10 years based on temperatures at weather stations and photoperiod. We inadvertently made a poor choice for a weather station to represent Wenatchee WA. To avoid heat island effects, we chose the Grouse Camp weather station to represent Wenatchee. However, although Grouse Camp is only 21 km from Wenatchee, it is in a mountainous area (1,642 m elevation) and poorly represents the climate in the apple growing region of Wenatchee, WA (190 m elevation). Thus, the results do not reflect potential population dynamics of H. halys in Wenatchee. In re-evaluation of the model, the data show that populations at Wenatchee, WA, are predicted to behave similarly to those at Salem, OR, with an average albeit marginal positive population growth. Conclusions that were driven heavily by photoperiod, such as the range in days for initiation of oviposition by overwintered adults, were less affected (from 16 down to 13 days). The strong differences were due to markedly higher degree day accumulations at Wenatchee versus Grouse Camp.
The following six files use the same order of tables and figures from the original manuscript and use the Weather Station data for Wenatchee, WA (network ID: GHCND:USC00459074).
We thank V. Jones for bringing this error to our attention, and the Frontiers journal for allowing us to add this Corrigendum.
