Two broad classes of arthropod natural enemies attack insect herbivores: specialists and generalists. The tight dynamical linkage of specialist natural enemies and their prey may make the specialists able to respond numerically to, and perhaps suppress, herbivore outbreaks. Because generalist predators may attack not only herbivores, but also the herbivores' specialist natural enemies, generalist predators may disrupt control of herbivore populations rather than contribute to it. We examined… Expand
