Abstract:The physiological host range of C. flavipes-complex parasitoids will likely be narrow, but exact host range will be difficult to predict. It is the hope that basic biological studies, such as those presented here, will help in the design of host range tests while also providing better understanding of the mechanisms used by insects to defend against invaders.
