The virus infecting the parasitoid Leptopilina boulardi exerts a specific action on superparasitism behaviour.

Abstract

Parasites often induce behavioural changes in their host. However, it is not necessarily easy to determine whether these changes are representative of an adaptation of the parasite (parasite manipulation), an adaptive response of the host or a side-effect of infection. In a solitary parasitoid of Drosophila larvae (Leptopilina boulardi), viral particles… (More)
