Facultative production of alates by greenbug schizaphis graminum and corn leaf aphid rhopalosiphum maidis and implication in aphid population dynamics homoptera aphididae



Journal of the Kansas Entomological Society 56(3): 434-440



Studies of biotype-C greenburg, S. graminum (Rondani), and corn leaf aphid, R. maidis (Fitch), suggested a 2-fold impact of facultative alate production; a significant role of alate emigration in the numerical decline of both aphid species on sorghum and removal of significant numbers of immature primary parasites via alate greenbugs. The implications of these results in interpretation of aphid population dynamics and impact of natural enemies are discussed.
