The two-spotted spider mite is a herbivore that feeds on over 1100 host plant species. This species is able to interfere with plant defense activation . Such defense manipulation has also been described for pathogens, nematodes and herbivorous insects and is mediated by so-called 'effector proteins'. Wim Jonckheere investigates the role of effectors and other components of the saliva of two-spotted spider mites during interaction with its many host plants.
