Host-feeding strategies of parasitoid wasps

Abstract

Three models of the evolution of host-feeding behaviour in parasitoid wasps are developed. The first assumes that the wasp host feeds purely to obtain resources to mature eggs (limited resource model) while the second assumes that host feeding provides energy for maintenance (pro-ovigenic model). The third model assumes that host feeding provides resources… (More)
