... of dietary protein. We further predicted that this response would enhance the melanization response, a component of the immune system that acts against parasitoids. We challenged the immune system using either tachinid fly parasitoids or a bead injection technique that has been used in studies to simulate...

... ( Helluy, 1983 ). In response to the attack of Cotesia glomerata parasitoid cocoons, manipulated caterpillar hosts behave as a bodyguard, spinning a silk web over the parasitoid cocoons and displaying violent head thrashing to knock off natural enemies ( Brodeur and Vet, 1994 ). Also, in addition...

...J. M. Schmidt; J. J. B. Smith ABSTRACT The parasitoid wasps of the genus Trichogramma use the surface curvature of their insect egg hosts to set an upper limit to the number of progeny allocated to the host, as well as the duration of their host examination. In addition, host recognition and host...
