Native generalist natural enemies and an introduced specialist parasitoid together control an invasive forest insect

Hannah Broadley, George Boettner, Brenda Schneider & Joseph Elkinton
Specialized natural enemies have long been considered a major force driving the population dynamics of outbreaking forest insects. While research has traditionally focused on the role of specialist parasitoids, recent studies and reviews reflect an appreciation of complex interactions among many regulatory factors. The sources suggest that specialist parasitoids and generalist predators can each inflict strong top‐down effects and that specialists and generalists can interact to regulate insect herbivore populations. Here we use the model...
