The effects of abiotically induced changes in host plant quality (and morphology) on a salt marsh planthopper and its parasitoid

Abstract

Assesses the effects of shading and fertilization on the density of Pissonotus quadripustulatus, which feeds on Borrichia frutescens. Shading and fertilizer increased nitrogen levels in plant leaves and increased the density of P. quadripustulatus. Shading and fertilizer also increased the percentage of P. quadripustulatus eggs that were parasitized.
