Invertebrate community structure predicts natural pest control resilience to insecticide exposure

Arran Greenop, Sam Cook, Andrew Wilby, Richard Pywell & Benjamin Woodcock
Biological pest control has become one of the central principles of ecological intensification in agriculture. However, invertebrate natural enemies within agricultural ecosystems are exposed to a myriad of different pesticides at both lethal and sub-lethal doses, that may limit their capacity to carry out pest control. An important question is how underlying diversity in invertebrate predator species, linked to their unique susceptibility to insecticides, can act to increase the resilience of natural pest control. We...
