Abstract: Abstract The objective of this study was to determine how elevated CO2 impacts on life‐history traits and life table parameters in three successive generations of invasive species Frankliniella occidentalis (Pergande) (Thysanoptera: Thripidae) and its related native species, Frankliniella intonsa (Pergande), fed with kidney bean leaves grown in ambient CO2. The oviposition period, sex ratio, net reproductive rate (R0), intrinsic rate of increase (rm), and finite rate of increase (λ) of F. occidentalis increas…
