Humans as regulators of plant-herbivore-insectivore system in the urban environment

Man affects the sanitary and decorative state of urban plantations by carrying out various agrotechnical measures, in particular topiary. The human activity was shown to affect the members of the plant-herbivore-insectivore system in different ways. The agrotechnical measures positively affect humans and plants and negatively, phytophagous and entomophagous insects. The spatial and temporal changes in the urban environment are responsible for different microsuccessions in colonization of plants by insects.
