Parasitoid communities: their size, structure and development
The authors develop a system of categorizing parasitoids, based on a fundamental dichotomy in their biology, which allows them to make predictions about host range. Expand
Reconstructing Community Assembly in Time and Space Reveals Enemy Escape in a Western Palearctic Insect Community
Reintegration of parasitoids after host escape shows these communities to have been unsaturated throughout their history, arguing against major roles for parasitoid niche evolution or competition during community assembly. Expand
The Organisation of Chalcid-Dominated Parasitoid Communities Centred upon Endophytic Hosts
The phytophagous larvae of many small endopterygote insect species complete their development inside plant tissue, and the oak gall community is qualitatively almost totally different from the deciduous tree leaf-miner community, although both communities are part of the woodland ecosystem. Expand
The diversity of insect communities in leaf-mines and plant galls.
The varied structure of oak galls provides a basis for a partitioning of resources between polyphagous parasites and may explain the co-existence of many cynipid species on oak trees. Expand
An account of the Chalcidoidea (Hymenoptera) parasitising leaf-mining insects of deciduous trees in Britain
Data on the distribution and frequency of hymenopterous parasites of leaf-mining insects on deciduous trees show that Chalcidoidea of the family Eulophidae are the chief component of the parasiteExpand
Catalogue of Parasitoids and Inquilines in Galls of Aylacini, Diplolepidini and Pediaspidini (Hym., Cynipidae) in the West Palaearctic
The author presents a list of parasitoid and inquiline species an d their host galls and some examples of how they have changed over time have changed in appearance and behaviour. Expand
Torymus sinensis: Biology, Host Range and Hybridization
Torymus sinensis is a solitary ectophagous parasitoid of the chestnut gallwasp, Dryocosmus kuriphilus, and its biology is still unknown or at most scarcely investigated, but preliminary tests were performed in order to investigate some important aspect of its biology. Expand
