Finding the needle in the haystack – making biological control of an invader possible
Four years ago, the brown marmorated stinkbug Halyomorpha halys arrived in the Netherlands and meanwhile can it be found all over the country. This pest has a broad range of hostplants, including fruits and vegetables and forms a  ...

What is necessary to send an insect to Mars?
Diapause is an amazing adaptation to survive harsh weather conditions. We will perform experiments to artificially induce diapause and compare the differences among different neopolyploids. We will also see the transcriptome for d ...

Volatile communication between plants
As a response to insect herbivory, plants emit volatile compounds. These compounds serve as a cry for help for the plant because they attract the natural enemies of the insect herbivores. Neighbour plants have also been shown to r ...

Parasitoid foraging behaviour under natural conditions: Attraction distance and influence of surrounding vegetation
Parasitoid foraging in a controlled laboratory environment is well understood, but less is known about factors that influence host location behaviour under more natural conditions. Herbivore-induced plant volatiles (HIPVs) which a ...
