Title: The sympatric coexistence of two reproductively independent lines of the endoparasitic wasp Venturia canescens / by Harry Leslie Scougall Roberts.

Abstract: It has recently been shown that a thelytokous laboratory culture of the parasitoid wasp Venturia canescens contains two genetically distinct lines, coexisting on their host, the flour moth Ephestia kuehniella. The primary aim of the research presented in this thesis was to determine the basis of the coexistence of the two wasp strains, and estimate whether it is an artefact of the laboratory rearing conditions, or could, in principle, occur in field populations.
