Density-dependent intraguild predation of an aphid parasitoid

  title={Density-dependent intraguild predation of an aphid parasitoid},
  author={Jeremy Matthew Chac{\'o}n and George Eugene Heimpel},
A growing body of research has examined the effect of shared resource density on intraguild predation (IGP) over relatively short time frames. Most of this work has led to the conclusion that when the shared resource density is high, the strength of IGP should be lower, due to prey dilution. However, experiments addressing this topic have been done using micro- or mesocosms that excluded the possibility of intraguild predator aggregation. We examined the effect of shared resource density on IGP… CONTINUE READING
