- ... Although many predators and parasitoids are known to respond to odours produced by plants infested with their prey under laboratory conditions, there are actually few studies that show that this response leads to higher numbers of predators or parasitoids on the plants under natural conditions. Here we study the response of predatory mites (Phytoseiulus persimilis Athias-Henriot, Acari, Phytoseiid ...

- ... Anthropods use odours associated with the presence of their food, enemies and competitors when searching for patches. Responses to these odours therefore determine the spatial distribution of animals, and are decisive for the occurrence and strength of interactions among species. Therefore, a logical first step in studying food web interactions is the analysis of behaviour of individuals that are ...
