The effect of environmental factors is essential to the success of parasitoids as biological control agents, as it determines their foraging activity, development, and survival.

In this study, the percentage of parasitism and induced mo…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
