Olfactory learning is generally involved in the host-finding process in parasitic wasps. But the reliability of odour cues for predicting future host-finding success depends on the rate at which host-substrate associations are subject to variation within and between parasitoid generations. Since learning comes at physiological costs, we can expect animals to learn in a way that optimizes costs and benefits. The parasitic wasp Venturia canescens occurs in two reproductive modes that forage in… CONTINUE READING
