Insect plant interactions

Our project is aimed at understanding the effect of nutrient inputs and natural enemies on the butterfly (Pieris rapae) host plant choice and is lead by Ph.D. student, Margie Lund, with funding from USDA-NIFA-OREI. We are also investigating the consumptive and non-consumptive effects of predators on different life stages of the herbivore.
