Recent parasitoid paper: Editor’s Choice

Sara Prado, an esteemed alumni of our lab, just had her paper selected as Editor’s ChoiceScreen Shot 2014-04-15 at 10.38.00 AM in Ecological Entomology. When given the choice, parasitoids select the hosts that will increase offspring fitness. Thanks Mom! It turns out this has benefits for biological control in greenhouses because the parasitoids prefer the green peach aphid, an important greenhouse pest, over grain aphids introduced on banker plants.

Nice job Prado!
