Spatial trade-offs in the digestive and reproductive systems of grape phylloxera

Andrews, Kathryn; Kemper, Daniel; Powell, K S; Cooper, Paul


Trade-offs between reproduction and other energy-requiring activities are present in insects. However, feeding and reproduction are not often thought to be trade-offs, although in small insects space may be limiting for both ingestion of food and egg development. This study characterised the structure of the digestive system of radicicolae Daktulosphaira vitifoliae (Hemiptera: Phylloxeridae) to investigate how feeding and egg development occur in this species. Using light and electron...[Show more]
