A major, and largely unexplored, uncertainty in projecting the impact of climate change on biodiversity is the consequence of altered interspecific interactions, for example between parasitoids and their hosts. The present study investigated parasitism in the Brown Argus butterfly, Aricia agestis ; a species that has expanded northward in Britain during the last 30 years in association with climate warming. 2. Aricia agestis larvae suffered lower mortality from parasitoids in newly colonised… CONTINUE READING
