Do floral resources in Eucalyptus plantations affect fitness parameters of the parasitoid Palmistichus elaeisis (Hymenoptera: Eulophidae)?


Adult parasitoids depend on sugar-rich foods such as nectar and honeydew to meet their energy requirements. The availability of nectar, honeydew or fruit sap affects the longevity, fecundity and dispersal of parasitoids and consequently their potential as biocontrol agents. The aim of this study was to evaluate the development and reproduction of an… (More)
