Oviposition behaviour an ecological factor in woodland canopy leafhoppers



Oviposition behaviour an ecological factor in woodland canopy leafhoppers



Entomologia Experimentalis et Applicata 24: 301-309



The role of female oviposition behaviour in determining the food-plant preferences of phytophagous insects observed in the field is reviewed. Complex patterns of food plant relationships in leafhoppers associated with trees in Britain are discussed. Some species are polyphagous, others are oligophagous and most are monophagous.
