Interpretive Summary:

Technical Abstract: Flower morphology and volatile chemistry are related to the number and type of parasitoids captured in Malaise traps baited with various flowers, including native plants. Such information could guide attempts to conserve natural enemies through modifications of agricultural landscapes such as intercropping or providing parasitoid reservoirs.
