Covariance of adult size and development time in the parasitoid waspAphidius ervi in relation to the size of its host,Acyrthosiphon pisum

Abstract

Adult size (in terms of dry weight; DW) and development time (T p ) of the solitary parasitoidAphidius ervi varied when reared in different nymphal instars of its host, apterous virginoparae of the pea aphid (Acyrthosiphon pisum). Parasitoid DW increased with an increase in the DW of the host at parasitization, from the first to the third aphid instar… (More)
