Aggregation in Aphis varians: an effective strategy for reducing predation risk

Ecology (Washington D C): 704: 1008-1016
Aggregation in Aphis varians: an effective strategy for reducing predation risk
The advantages or disadvantages of clumping to prey was studied for the interaction between Aphis varians and the coccinellid Hippodamia convergens on fireweed (Epilobium angustifolium) in Washington during 1986-87. Aphids tended to stay within clumps of conspecifics.
