Table of contents 1. Introduction -- 2. A simple framework. A classical framework. Three models. Functional responses and interference -- 3. Parasitism and host density dependence. Parasitoid survival and sex ratios. Parasitism and host density dependence -- 4. Heterogeneity in host-parasitoid interactions. What is heterogeneity? Spatial patterns of parasitism. Models with spatial heterogeneity. A more unified approach. Other sources of heterogeneity -- 5. Continuous time and age-structure. The Lotka-Volterra model. The destabilising effect of time lags.
