The importance of niche overlap between parasitoids in the single- or multiple-introduction problem in biological control is exhibited by mathematical...Read more
Theoretical studies have presented conflicting conclusions about the value of introducing multiple parasitoid species to control insect pests, dependi...Read more
Accurate identification of natural enemies is the cornerstone of biological control, and methods that can separate closely related species are essenti...Read more
Insect parasitoids comprise a large fraction of terrestrial biodiversity. Because of this diversity, species-level conservation of most parasitoid spe...Read more
Dispersal and host-foraging activity are important behavioural characteristics for parasitoid species used as biological control agents. Appropriate m...Read more
Heteronomous hyperparasitism, in which male parasitoids develop at the expense of conspecific females or competing parasitoid species, is characterist...Read more
Parasitoids often are selected for use as biological control agents because of their high host specificity, yet such host specificity can result in st...Read more
Insect herbivores are generally more abundant in agroecosystems than in natural ecosystems. One possible cause is that artificial selection of crop pl...Read more
There is increasing interest in the use of food supplements in agriculture to enhance the performance of parasitoids as part of conservation biologica...Read more
Age-structured host/parasitoid population models with overlapping generations were developed to investigate the interactions of Rastrococcus invadens,...Read more
