The role of floral resource subsidies in structuring a four tropic-level parasitoid/host system
(Lincoln University, 2007)
In this study, conservation biological control principles were explored to determine whether the efficacy of Aphidius ervi Haliday (Hymenoptera: Braconidae), a parasitoid of the pea aphid Acyrthosiphon pisum Harris (Homoptera: ...
Use of floral resources by the lacewing Micromus tasmaniae and its parasitoid Anacharis zealandica, and the consequences for biological control by M. tasmaniae
(Lincoln University, 2009)
Arthropod species that have the potential to damage crops are food resources for communities of predators and parasitoids. From an agronomic perspective these species are pests and biocontrol agents respectively, and the ...
Floral resources for the enhancement of the efficacy of Diadegma semiclausum (Helen) (Hymenoptera: Ichneumonidae), a parasitoid of Plutella xylostella (L.) (Lepidoptera: Hyponomeutidae) in broccoli (Brassica oleracea L. var. italica)
(Lincoln University, 2004)
In this thesis, conservation biological control experiments have been conducted in the broccoli agro-ecosystem in New Zealand, to target the diamondback moth (Plutella xylostella (L.) (Lepidoptera: Hyponomeutidae)) and its ...
