Plant-provided food for carnivorous insects : a protective mutualism and its applications

Author: F L Wäckers; P C J van Rijn; J Bruin

Edition/Format:   eBook : Document : EnglishView all editions and formats
Summary:
"Plants provide insects with a range of specific foods, such as nectar, pollen, and food bodies. In exchange, they may obtain various services from arthropods. The role of food rewards in the plant-pollinator mutualism has been covered broadly. This book addresses another category of food-mediated interactions, focusing on how plants use foods to recruit arthropod "bodyguards" as a protection against herbivores."

    schema:description ""Many arthropods with primarily carnivorous lifestyles require plant-provided food as an indispensable part of their diet. Only recently have we started to appreciate the implications of non-prey food for plant-herbivore-carnivore interactions. Insight into this aspect of multitrophic interactions is not only crucial to our understanding of the evolution and functioning of plant-insect interactions in natural ecosystems, it also has direct implications for the use of food plants and food supplements in biological control programs."
