Response of Aphidius colemani to aphid sex pheromone varies depending on plant synergy and prior experience

Fernandez-Grandon, G. Mandela; Poppy, Guy M.;

A critical stage in the success of a parasitoid is the ability to locate a host within its habitat. It is hypothesized that a series of olfactory cues may be involved in altering the parasitoid's movement patterns at this stage of foraging. This paper focuses specifical... View more
