Importance of primary metabolites in canola in mediating interactions between a specialist leaf-feeding insect and its specialist solitary endoparasitoid
The role of primary plant chemistry on trophic interactions is not well studied. We examined the effect of primary plant metabolites, focusing on nitrogen, on several biological indices of second and third trophic level ...
Effects of plant availability and habitat size on the coexistence of two competing parasitoids in a tri-trophic food web of canola, diamondback moth and parasitic wasps
Using experiments and spatial modeling, we here show the conditions for two competing parasitoids to coexist under two levels of plant availability in a tri-trophic food web of canola, diamondback moth (Plutella xylostella) ...
