Principal investigator: Saskya van Nouhuys

We study host-parasite interactions, and processes affecting community structure and dynamics in a patchy landscape.

Our primary research system is the community associated with the Glanville fritillary butterfly Melitaea cinxia in Finland. Within that community we mainly focus on parasitoids and hyperparasitoids, though we also work with related butterflies, their food plants, and endosymbionts.
