Field Borders Provide Winter Refuge for Beneficial Predators and Parasitoids

Scott Clem, Ph.D., recently completed his doctoral degree at the University of Illinois. Part of his research focused on evaluating the value of semi-natural field borders as winter refuge for beneficial arthropods that like to eat or parasitize crop pests. Here, Clem visits the array of soil-emergence tents used to capture arthropods in the field border at one of his study sites. (Photo courtesy of Scott Clem, Ph.D.)
