Written by a team of leading international specialists, Behavioral Ecology of Insect Parasitoids examines the optimal behaviors that parasitoids exhibit in order to maximize long term offspring production. It is an essential reference for research scientists and students studying these fascinating insects or for anyone involved in using parasitoids in biological control programs.
Reviews topical issues, including cutting edge research on parasitoid decision making and the implications for biological control
Explores applications in other fields, provides information on the latest research methods, and includes helpful case studies and statistical tools
Creates a deeper understanding of the link between behavioural strategies and host mortality, resulting in more efficient selective pest management programs
