英文摘要: In natural environments, organisms must adapt to changing light conditions. Significant research has been done on diurnal pollinating insects’ vision. However, little is known on parasitoid insects. Here, we studied how locomotor activity of the parasitoid wasp Aphidius ervi and its main host, the pea aphid Acyrthosiphon pisum , is affected under controlled artificial illumination. Using LEDs of 5 different wavelengths (361, 450, 500-600, 626 and 660 nm), we created different artificial light spectra that parasitoids and host aphids can encounter in natural environment including leaf-shade and direct sunlight. We found that pea aphid probability of walking depended on interactions between illumination, developmental stage and genotype as expressed in clonal variation. Artificial light...
