Generalist predators are potential controlagents of aphids in cereal fields. Becauseaphids are low-quality prey for most generalistpredators, the availability of alternativehigh-quality prey may influence theinteractions between aphids and their predatorsby reducing the predation rate due to loweredpreference for aphids. We analysed this bytesting the ability of six generalist predators(the spiders Erigone atra (Bl.), Clubiona lutescens (Westr.)/reclusaO.P.-C., Pachygnatha degeeri Sundevall… CONTINUE READING
