Differential defoliation of Eucalyptus grandis arises from indiscriminant oviposition and differential larval survival

Henery, Martin; Stone, C; Foley, William

Description

1 The influence of six open-pollinated families (OPFs) of Eucalyptus grandis on both the growth and development of larvae and the oviposition preference of a paropsine chrysomelid (Paropsis atomaria) was investigated. The OPFs had previously been identified as differing in their susceptibility to defoliation by P. atomaria in forestry progeny trials. 2 Oviposition preference for resistant and susceptible foliage was tested using binary choice tests. These tests did not demonstrate any...[Show more]
