Reviews


"This is a fascinating volume that provides a significant contribution to the literature on parasitoid insects. It goes a long way towards providing insights into numerous aspects of parasitoid behavior and will stimulate a diversity of future projects, something that should be the goal of any such text. I highly recommend Wajnberg et al. for all of those working on the biology or evolution of parasitoids." (PALAIOS, March 2, 2009)

"The book has an attractive cover, useful figures (mostly graphs) and tables, and an index that includes subject matter and taxonomic names." (Ecology, January 2009)

"[The book] will become indispensable both for students in basic research and workers in biological control … and will certainly promote further progress in the field." (European Journal of Entomology, 2008)

"Hopefully will engender support for young investigators to embark on field investigations to bolster the discipline. Editor Wajnberg and colleagues have compiled papers from expert international authors that provide an insightful theoretical context for designing, conducting, and evaluating needed field studies for informed decision making in biological control. Recommended." (Choice Reviews, October 2008)

"The editors should be congratulated … [this book] should provide excellent value to most academic entomologists." ( British Journal of Entomology and Natural History)
