Cover for Nutrition and symbiosis.

A single question dominates the study of aphid nutrition: how does plant phloem sap, a nutritionally unbalanced diet of high C:N content, support the remarkably high growth and reproductive rates characteristic of many aphid species? The 'long answer' to this opening question requires a mechanistic ...

Cover for Population dynamics: cycles and patterns.

This chapter looks at the abundance on crops of several aphid species and what explanations for the patterns observed can be proposed from field-derived evidence. Although attempts over the years to understand the causes of population change of aphids on crops from field-collected data have...

Cover for Monitoring and forecasting.

This chapter covers the monitoring and forecasting of aphids: why, what, where, when and how? It summarizes, only briefly, techniques that have changed little since the reviews mentioned and concentrates more on areas where subsequent progress has been evident. Much effort, building on fundamental...
