Cover September

The cover for our September Issue comes from the study "Host nutritional status mediates degree of parasitoid virulence" by Fanny Maure et al. 

The photo shows a "Spotted lady beetle (Coleomegilla maculata) attending a newly emerged parasitoid larva on a maize plant in Quebec, Canada. The ladybird is turned into a bodyguard by the parasitoid to confer protection against predators and it is suggested that host nutrition plays an important role in the outcome of the Dinocampus coccinellae – Coleomegilla maculata relationship."
