Host—Parasitoid Interactions

  • Alan Hastings


Arthropod predator—prey and host—parasitoid interactions are exceptionally well studied for several reasons. These are systems that can often be studied on a relatively small spatial scale. These also are interactions that can be reasonably thought of as representing tightly coupled systems of two species. Finally, these are systems of great economic importance, because often the hosts are significant pests of crops, and the parasitoids may act as control agents.
