Intraguild predation (IGP) is a primordial mortality factor that generates consequences for the coexistence of species in natural communities as well as for the implementation of antagonists in biological control programs. Among parasitoids and predators the most frequent form of IGP is asymmetric. Because it exerts a strong selection pressure on the inferior parasitoids it seems to be likely that these antagonists have evolved strategies to minimize IGP. Our study traced the behavior of the… CONTINUE READING
