Abstract

Abstract The human population is ever-expanding and the ability to provide enough food is becoming increasingly difficult. Insect-plant interactions have always been of interest to man but, owing to the need to feed the world's population in a sustainable and environmentally friendly fashion, such studies are taking on a new significance. By considering the third trophic level (natural enemies of herbivorous insects) when studying insect-plant interactions, not only can this help improve ecological understanding but it may enable us to improve biological control.
