  • The metabolic costs of fighting and host exploitation in a seed-drilling parasitic wasp. [Journal Article]
    J Exp Biol 2017; 220(Pt 21):3955-3966Boisseau RP, Woods HA, Goubault M
  • Oviposition sites may be challenging and energetically costly to access for females in the presence of competitors contesting that resource. Additionally, oviposition sites may be difficult to reach, and penetrating a hard substrate can raise energy costs. In the seed-drilling parasitic wasp Eupelmus vuilleti, females actively fight with conspecific competitors over access to hosts. They are ofte…

    Insect Sci 2018; 25(6):1080-1088Tougeron K, Hraoui G, … Brodeur J
  • Organisms often live in unpredictable environments and have to adopt life history strategies that optimize their fitness under these conditions. According to bet-hedging theory, individuals can reduce variation in fitness outcomes by investing in different strategies at the same time. For arthropods, facultative summer diapause enables survival during dry and hot periods of the year, and can be t…
