Effect of physiological and behavioural characteristics of parasitoids on host specificity testing outcomes and the biological control of Paropsis charybdis
(Lincoln University, 2010)
An established host-parasitoid-hyperparasitoid system was used to investigate how the physiological and behavioural characteristics of parasitoids influence the outcomes of laboratory-based host specificity tests. The ...
Enhancement of the efficacy of the parasitoid, Microctonus hyperodae Loan (Hymenoptera: Braconidae) by provision of floral resources to improve biological control of its host, the Argentine stem weevil (Listronotus bonariensis) (Kuschel) (Coleoptera: Curculionidae)
(Lincoln University, 2005)
In this study, conservation biological control principles were applied to increase the efficacy of Microctonus hyperodae Loan (Hymenoptera: Braconidae), a parasitoid of the Argentine stem weevil (Listronotus bonariensis ...
The effect of floral resources on the leafroller (Lepidoptera: Tortricidae) parasitoid Dolichogenidea tasmanica (Cameron)(Hymenoptera: Braconidae) in selected New Zealand vineyards
(Lincoln University, 2002)
In this study, buckwheat (Fagopyrum esculentum Moench) and alyssum (Lobularia maritima (L.)) flowers were used to examine the effect of floral resources on the efficacy of the leafroller parasitoid Dolichogenidea tasmanica ...
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 ...
