Parasitoids of Drosophila

Edited by

  • Genevieve Prevost, Laboratoire de Biologie des Entomophages, Universite de Picardie-Jules Verne, Amiens, France

Much is known about the biology of Drosophila parasitoids, which is why they are used as a model for studying other parasitoids. This book brings together the different fields of research that can be explored, thanks to the "Drosophila parasitoid" model. It shows how the complementary knowledge arising from different approaches is inspiring the development of new areas of research on this biological model. It also discusses techniques and methods specifically adapted to the study of larval parasitoid species.

Reviews

"One is struck by the quality and scholarship of the various chapters and the obviously efficient editing."--PARASITOLOGY
"The policy of the editors of
Advances in Parasitology to include reviews from any aspect of parasitology and the high standard of individual papers have resulted in this series of volumes becoming an indispensable source for students, teachers, and research workers."--ANNALS OF TROPICAL MEDICINE AND PARASITOLOGY
