Insect parasitoids are extremely important study organisms in population biology, and the most frequently used agents in biological control of insect pests. This book presents the ideas of 17 international specialists in three main sections: population dynamics, population diversity, and population applications. Discusses parasitoid behavior and persistence, how space and landscape affect dynamics, how evolution molds parasitoid populations and communities, new approaches in biological control, and why parasitoids have been neglected in conservation biology.
