Various aspects of the knowledge on the aphid parasitoids (Hymenoptera, Aphidiinae) with regards to the biological control of pest aphids are presented. The aphidiines are exclusively associated with aphids and can be found in various natural and agro-ecosystems. There are both specific and generalist aphid parasitoids, which can be used in various...

A survey of pine-associated aphids and their parasitoids was carried out in the arboretum of Pinus halepensis Miller in the Higher Agronomic Institute Chott Mariem (ISA CM, Tunisia) during 2010–2011 and 2018. The survey revealed the presence of the aphid parasitoid species, Diaeretus leucopterus (Haliday) (Hymenoptera, Braconidae, Aphidiinae). This...

Biological invasion of aphids and other insects has been increased due to long distance commercial transportation of plant material. The bamboo-aphid-parasitoid association is strictly specific and even though it does not develop interactions with the local environment it should be listed as part of the fauna of southwestern Europe. On-going resear...

Aphids are a serious pest for peach crops. They have traditionally been managed with insecticides, but there is increasing concern about the risk that insecticides pose to both humans and the environment. As a first step to use biological control in aphid management, we conducted a 3-year field survey in northeastern Spain to determine which parasi...

Full-text available
Species from the genus Paralipsis are obligatory endoparasitoids of root aphids in the Palaearctic. It is known that these species are broadly distributed, parasitizing various aphid hosts and showing great biological and ecological diversity. On the other hand, this group of endoparasitoids is understudied and was thought to be represented by a si...

Aphids reproduction is a complex issue and depends on the where they live; a phase of sexual reproduction generally occurs in temperate regions while no male or no eggs production take places in subtropical and tropical area. This asexual production also depends on overwintering hostplant and the plant plays vital role for successful expansion in s...

Although Aphidiinae parasitoids have been used as agents for biocontrol of alfalfa aphids for more than half a century and have been the subject of numerous ecological investigations, there is an evident lack of systematic studies on the parasitoids of aphids infesting alfalfa in Europe. Here we present an original and up-dated key for identificati...

PARASITOIDS AND BIOCONTROL: POSTER Lysiphlebus Foerster is a medium-sized genus that includes over 30 endoparasitoid species which parasitize numerous aphid host species of both economic or non-economic importance, prevailingly in the northern hemisphere. On the basis of existing knowledge about Lysiphlebus taxonomy and using available morphologica...

Specialization is a central concept in ecology and one of the fundamental properties of parasitoids. Highly specialized parasitoids tend to be more efficient in host-use compared to generalized parasitoids, presumably owing to the trade-off between host range and host-use efficiency. However, it remains unknown how parasitoid host specificity and h...

Morphological divergence often increases with phylogenetic distance, thus making morphology taxonomically informative. However, transitions to asexual reproduction may complicate this relationship because asexual lineages capture and freeze parts of the phenotypic variation of the sexual populations from which they derive. Parasitoid wasps belongin...

Abstract Studies of food webs suggest that limited nonrandom dispersal can play an important role in structuring food webs. It is not clear, however, whether density-dependent dispersal fits empirical patterns of food webs better than density-independent dispersal. Here, we study a spatially distributed food web, using a series of population-disper...
