Asymmetry in reproduction strategies drives evolution of resistance in biological control systems
(Public Library of Science, 2018-12-19)
The success of biological control may depend on the control agent co-evolving with its target pest species, precluding the emergence of resistance that often undermines chemical control. However, recent evidence of a decline ...
Genetic diversity in invasive populations of Argentine stem weevil associated with adaptation to biocontrol
Modified, agricultural landscapes are susceptible to damage by insect pests. Biological control of pests is typically successful once a control agent has established, but this depends on the agent’s capacity to co-evolve ...
