About This Project

Parasitoid diversity is rapidly declining in La Selva Costa Rica, yet many species remain undescribed limiting our ability to understand how local extinction of parasitoids will impact ecosystem function and stability. Here, we explore the hypothesis that increased frequency of extreme weather events negatively affects tropical plant-insect-parasitoid interactions by measuring the impact of flooding on parasitism rates and interaction diversity.
