Intensified management of agricultural land has produced dramatic yield increases over the last century. Intensification involves increased mechanization, irrigation and use of synthetic fertilizers and pesticides, in conjunction with use of crops bred to respond to high-input environments (Matson et al. 1997). Accordingly, the large monocultures currently epitomizing agricultural intensification differ in many ways from natural ecosystems. Compared to plants in natural environments, crops in monocultures may be easier to find for insect herbivores (Root 1973; Feeny 1976; Andow 1991), more suitable nutritionally (Scriber and Slansky 1981; Myers 1985), or less defended by natural enemies (Croft 1990; Andow 1991). Moreover, economically acceptable damage to crops can be low compared to damage occurring in natural environments. Such differences facilitate pest outbreaks in monocultures, which are suppressed most of the time with synthetic insecticides.
