Abstract

This review examines recent research on the foraging behaviour of aphid parasitoids and highlights current knowledge on host location, searching mechanisms and variation in parasitoid performance. In addition, the theoretical relationships between host spatial distribution and parasitoid behaviour are explored. Predictions from this theoretical framework are compared with results from recent experimental studies on foraging behaviour.
