Edges in Agricultural Landscapes: Species Interactions and Movement of Natural Enemies

New paper published in PLOS ONE

This is a paper in which Warren Muller and I illustrate how insects moving through agricultural landscapes perceive different edges or eco-tones. We combine this movement data with information on species interactions (herbivores-parasitoids) to discuss the implications for pest control services.

Let me know what you think of the paper and if you are currently doing any work around insect movement in agricultural landscapes.
