Influence of host origin on host choice of the parasitoid Dinarmus basalis: does upbringing influence choices later in life?

Sankara F, Dabiré LC, Ilboudo Z, Dugravot S, Cortesero AM, Sanon A - J. Insect Sci. (2014)

Bottom Line: In the three-dimensional system, the females from the four strains did not appear to have any preference for a given type of seed containing 4(th)instar larvae or pupae.These results show that the use of D. basalis as a biological control agent is possible in host changing situations where C. maculatus starts to attack other legumes.The results of this study also provide information supporting the behavioral plasticity of D. basalis.

Distribution (means ± SE) of female Dinarmus basalis in a situation of free choice in a 3D device between cowpea (Vigna unguiculata), white and striped Bambara groundnut (Vigna subterranea), and pigeon pea (Cajanus cajan)). Treatments with the same letter are not statistically different according to the Fisher LSD test at a significance level of 5%. High quality figures are available online.

f03_01: Distribution (means ± SE) of female Dinarmus basalis in a situation of free choice in a 3D device between cowpea (Vigna unguiculata), white and striped Bambara groundnut (Vigna subterranea), and pigeon pea (Cajanus cajan)). Treatments with the same letter are not statistically different according to the Fisher LSD test at a significance level of 5%. High quality figures are available online.

Mentions: In a free choice situation in the 3D system, females from all the strains did not have a clear preference for a given type of seed. These females were invariably distributed after 24 hours in the four boxes containing the seeds of legume hosts (p > 0.05) (Figure 3).
