A standing army in the field?! How effective is augmentative biocontrol using banker systems in suppressing pest populations in open field vegetables? (Internship or Thesis)
Banker plants are often used in protected cultivation to support the released biocontrol agents (BCAs) with alternative (supplementary) resources such as flowers or alternative prey. Banker systems may thus ensure that a “standing ...

Exploring plant defence strategies to deal with attack by multiple herbivores
In nature, plants are confronted with a plethora of insect herbivores which have been driving the evolution of plant defences for more than 400 million years. Plants have developed plastic defensive strategies to be resistant or t ...

Biological control on tomato plants lacking type VI trichomes - NEW
Tomato plants are typically covered in glandular trichomes: sticky hairs that inhibit small pest species. However, these plant hairs also harm beneficial arthropods. Because of this, only a few biological control agents provide su ...
