Kaiser L, Le Ru BP, Kaoula F, Paillusson C, Capdevielle-Dulac C, Obonyo JO, Herniou EA, Jancek S, Branca A, Calatayud PA, Silvain JF, Dupas S. Kaiser L, et al. Evol Appl. 2015 Sep;8(8):807-20. doi: 10.1111/eva.12260. Epub 2015 Jul 7. Evol Appl. 2015. PMID: 26366198 Free PMC article.
To develop efficient and safe biological control, we need to reliably identify natural enemy species, determine their host range, and understand the mechanisms that drive host range evolution. We investigated these points in Cotesia sesamiae, an African parasitic wa …
