Some of the following propositions are to be read as suggestions or hypotheses, supported by circumstantial or direct evidence, but not yet rigorously demonstrated. An estimate of the significance to be attached to each should be gathered from the body of the paper rather than from the following brief statements. 
A note on the resistance of two parasitoids to the defence reactions of their insect hosts
  • G. Salt
  • Biology
    Proceedings of the Royal Society of London. Series B. Biological Sciences
  • 1980
TLDR
An experiment is described which shows that the resistance of the ichneumon wasp Nemeritis canescens to the cellular defence reactions of caterpillars of Ephestia kuehniella does not involve general inhibition of their haemocytic reaction.
A note on the defence reactions of insects to Protozoa.
  • G. Salt
  • Biology, Medicine
    Parasitology
  • 1969
TLDR
It is suggested that the situation with regard to protozoan parasites, including some genera for which insects act as vectors between vertebrate hosts, may be necessary to be re-examine.
George Salt and the development of experimental insect parasitology
TLDR
The work of George Salt is used as a paradigm for the diversification of the study and his paper shows how this work has stimulated the development of several avenues of research and which continue to provide a challenge to the analysis of the relationship between a parasitoid and its host.
The Adaptability of Introduced Biological Control Agents
The ecological circumstances necessary for successful establishment of an entomophagous insect in a new environment are complex. The climate must be suitable in its direct effects on development,
Immune defense and suppression in insects
TLDR
Biological properties of some of the host proteins suggest that they might be involved in the insect defense reaction of the insect endoparasitoids.
Experimental studies in insect parasitism. XVI. The mechanism of the resistance of Nemeritis to defence reactions
  • G. Salt
  • Biology
    Proceedings of the Royal Society of London. Series B. Biological Sciences
  • 1973
TLDR
The egg of the ichneumon wasp Nemeritis canescens is shown to be resistant to the defence reactions of its usual host, Ephestia kuehniella, by virtue of a coating on its surface, and the possibility that substances chemically similar to the particles of Nemersitis might inhibit cell adhesion and aggregation in vertebrates is briefly discussed.
Teratocytes as a Means of Resistance to Cellular Defence Reactions
  • G. Salt
  • Chemistry, Medicine
    Nature
  • 1971
TLDR
It is suggested that teratocytes, the giant cells which develop from the trophamnion of many parasitoid Hymenoptera, serve as a means of resistance to the defence reactions of insect hosts and the consequent depletion of materials in the haemolymph would impede or inhibit haematopoiesis and prevent an effective haemocytic reaction to the young parasitoids.
Insect Host Responses Against Parasitoids and the Parasitoid’s Resistance: With Emphasis on the Lepidoptera-Hymenoptera Association
TLDR
The major factors responsible for the immune response of vertebrates appear to be lacking in insects and the mechanism of the host’s defense reaction or the means by which a parasitoid escapes it is unclear.
Role of virus-like particles in parasitoid-host interaction of insects.
TLDR
A simple proposal would be that hypothetical viruses, which were able to suppress immune reaction in lepidopteran hosts, were incorporated into a Parasitoid wasp to become part of the life cycle of the parasitoid.
Intramolluscan inter-trematode antagonism: a review of factors influencing the host-parasite system and its possible role in biological control.
TLDR
The study of intramolluscan single and double trematode infections has proved to be a useful approach in better understanding host–parasite relationship.

  • G. Salt

TLDR
It is concluded that surface properties of the parasite or implant determine whether or not it shall be encapsulated.
Experimental Studies in Insect Parasitism. VI.—Host Suitability
TLDR
The host list of most groups of parasites is greatly limited by the inaccessibility of many species; it is further restricted in some groups by the selection exercised by the parasite; and it is finally limited in all groups (and especially the parasitoid Diptera) by the unsuitability of many infected animals.
Experimental Studies in Insect Parasitism
Trichogramma evanescens is able to distinguish healthy from parasitised hosts, and when few hosts are available can restrain itself for 8 hours to the deposition of 5 per cent. of its available eggs.
Experimental studies in insect parasitism. IX. The reactions of a stick insect to an alien parasite

  • 1956
TLDR
Eggs and larvae of an ichneumon fly injected into adults of a stick insect, Carausius morosus, elicited two defence reactions, both by living and by dead parasites; the haemocytic reaction appeared to be elicited by clean glass rods, but the melanin reaction was not.
Immune Surface of Eggs of a Parasitic Insect
TLDR
The ability of eggs of Nemeritis canescens to avoid a defence reaction in caterpillars of Ephestia kuehniella was investigated and it was found that a property of the surface acquired by the egg during its passage through the genital ducts of the adult parasite enabled the egg to escape a haemocytic reaction.
The defence reactions of insects to metazoan parasites
TLDR
Analysis of the stimuli that produce defence reactions has not yet gone far enough to explain the phenomena, and it is concluded that the blood cells of insects are their only known agents of defence to internal metazoan parasites.
