Wild species of Nicotiana as a new source of tobacco resistance to the tobacco hornworm Manduca sexta



Wild species of Nicotiana as a new source of tobacco resistance to the tobacco hornworm Manduca sexta



Entomologia Experimentalis et Applicata 38.2: 157-164



Sixteen species of Nicotiana were examined for resistance to 2nd instar larvae of Manduca sexta. The tests were designed so as to discriminate between antibiosis and non-preference. High levels of antibiosis resistance were observed in several wild species such as N. gossei and species in the Repandae section.
