Extrafloral nectar: entomological implications

Extrafloral nectar: entomological implications

Bulletin of the Entomological Society of America 31(3): 15-20

The source, characteristics, functions and chemical ecology of extrafloral nectar are examined from the perspective of entomological research. The importance of extrafloral nectar to ants, lepidopterous and hemipterous pests and to beneficial entomophagous insects in the ecology of crops such as cotton, castor and peaches is discussed.
