Edges in Agricultural Landscapes: Species Interactions and Movement of Natural Enemies

  title={Edges in Agricultural Landscapes: Species Interactions and Movement of Natural Enemies},
  author={Sarina Macfadyen and Warren Muller},

Agricultural landscapes can be characterized as a mosaic of habitat patches interspersed with hostile matrix, or as a gradient of patches ranging from suitable to unsuitable for different species. Arthropods moving through these landscapes encounter a range of edges, with different permeability. Patches of native vegetation in these landscapes may support natural enemies of crop pests by providing alternate hosts for parasitic wasps and/or acting as a source for predatory insects.
