The large amounts of insecticides used for crop protection lead to widespread environmental pollution. Determination of the potential impacts induced by this contamination on key species involved in the equilibrium of ecosystems is therefore a necessity. In this study, we tested the effects of a pyrethroid insecticide, deltamethrin, on the capacity of males from two sympatric Trichogramma species to discriminate the sex pheromones emitted by females of their own species (Trichogramma are… CONTINUE READING
