Caterpillars in the Middle!

A new edited volume is coming out that is focused on the ecological interactions of caterpillars, their host plants, their mutualists, and their enemies. Robert Marquis and Suzanne Koptur (the editors) have collected chapters on a diverse array of topics involving caterpillars and their interactions with other species authored by dozens of top-notch scientific researchers. Throughout the book there is an emphasis on how these interactions are affected by anthropogenic changes to abiotic and biotic environments. I want to highlight one chapter in particular authored by Scott Shaw (U. Wyoming) and myslef focused on the the natural history and ecology of caterpillar parasitoids! I will try to announce when the volume is officially published (but given my recent record with updating this site, I may be a bit late with that!).
