Anatomical and biochemical parameters of resistance of the wild cowpea, Vigna vexillata Benth (Acc. TVNu 72) to Maruca testulalis Geyer (Lepidoptera: Pyralidae)



Anatomical and biochemical parameters of resistance of the wild cowpea, Vigna vexillata Benth (Acc. TVNu 72) to Maruca testulalis Geyer (Lepidoptera: Pyralidae)



Insect Science and its Application 14(3): 315-323



The anatomical and biochemical basis of resistance of Vigna vexillata (Acc. TVNu 72) to Maruca testulalis was investigated. An uncharacteristic network of fibrous structures was observed on the petal surface of TVNu 72, but not on that of the susceptible V. unguiculata variety IT82D-716. Stems of TVNu 72 and IT82D-716 had thick and closely packed collenchyma cells.
