Abstract
Parasitoids are group of insects that play an important role in the agricultural ecosystem. They play a pivotal roles by laying eggs inside their host, get nutrient from the host and consequently kill the hosts. Their presence in the field are highly significant and influences yield production and sustainability of the ecosystem. Through several series of studies (2011-2018), we have presented and compiled several significant parasitoids that potential to be applied as natural enemies or parasitoids on several insect pests that infesting crops e.g. oil palm, cocoa, coconut, paddy, rice storage, fruits, vegetables etc. in Malaysia. The parasitoids for the pests of Bactrocera spp., stem borers, storage pests, bagworms, cocoa pod borer (CPB), sap beetles, Red Palm Weevil (RPW) and many more have been performed based on samples from various localities and populations throughout the Peninsular Malaysia. The identification status of the species has been verified based on molecular data in both species, the pests and the parasitoids. Besides that, phylogenetic analysis implemented and helps to investigate the species relationships, and promotes accurate classification and identification. Furthermore, the coevolution and evolution of the species also obtained to reveal some information on the particular species. Besides that, genetic diversity and species variation information are also necessary for population genetic study to enhance understanding on adaptability and survivability of a species. Therefore, the aim of this study is to update the current information of the Malaysian insect parasitoids-pests species for creating the best strategy towards sustainable species management.
