Caption: Whitefly. A culture of whitefly (Trialeuroides vaporarium) on the underside of a kidney bean plant leaf. Whitefly are thought of as pests in agriculture, and a variety of methods are used to control them. This culture of whitefly, however, was grown to be part of an experiment in the Ecotron project. The project aims to study the effect of species diversity and climate change on simple ecosystems. Each experiment uses a small number of plant and insect species and is contained in a four square metre sealed chamber, with lighting and watering controlled by researchers.
