About this book. Aphids are well-known as pests of agriculture, horticulture and forestry, but they are also one of the most biologically interesting groups of plant-feeding insects, and thus have attracted the attention of biologists in many research fields such as ecology, .

What is an aphid? Aphids are small, soft-bodied insects that feed by inserting their slender mouthparts into phloem cells, the food conduits of plants. Most aphid species feed on only one species of plant and closely related aphid species tend to feed on closely related species of plants. Once an aphid finds the correct plant species, it simultaneously feeds and reproduces. Species Included. AphID includes all 38 aphid species in the dichotomous keys to polyphagous aphids in the three seminal works by Roger Blackman & Victor Eastop (, , ).. The remaining aphids represent the 28 species most frequently intercepted at United States ports of entry that are not already represented on the Blackman & Eastop list.
Did you know that aphids poop honeydew? It's true! And it's also fact that ants harvest this sweet poo. In this insect introduction, early readers will see aphids more as honeydew suppliers than pests. Red ones, black ones, green ones, woolly ones, and winged ones are all swarming in this title!

The group includes the fluffy white woolly aphids.A typical life cycle involves flightless females giving living birth to female nymphs—whom may also be already pregnant, an adaptation scientists call Class: Insecta.
Aphids represent one of the world's major insect pests, causing serious economic damage to a range of temperate and tropical crops. These range from grain crops and brassicas to potato, cotton, vegetable and fruit crops. This book provides a definitive reference volume on the biology of aphids, their pest status, and how to control them.
It includes approximately 30 specially commissioned 4/5(1). Aphids are particularly good organisms for studying the evolution of sex for three reasons. First, they show coexistence of different reproductive modes within a species, either as alternating sexual and asexual phases (cyclical parthenogenesis), or as cyclical and obligate parthenogenesis (Fig.

Aphids are expert kickboxers and will pummel their pursuers with their hind feet. Some aphids bear spines that make them challenging to chew on, and others are merely thick-skinned. Aphids are also known to go on the offensive, stabbing the eggs of predatory insects to kill their enemies in vitro.
Introduction. Aphids constitute a diversified group of insects widespread and of economical relevance as crop pests. The underlying reason of their ecological success is their novel capability to exploit ecological niches with little competitors, mainly due to their diet based on phloem, which is abundant and of easy access but represents an unbalanced source of nutrients, rich in sugars Cited by: Since the establishment of the symbiosis between the ancestor of modern aphids and their primary endosymbiont, Buchnera aphidicola, insects and bacteria have coevolved.
Due to this parallel evolution, the analysis of bacterial genomic features constitutes a useful tool to understand their evolutionary history. Here we report, based on data from B.
aphidicola, the molecular evolutionary Cited by: Thus, while aphids cannot live long without Buchnera, Buchnera also depends on aphids. This obligate mutualism between eukaryote and prokaryote might resemble early stages of organelle evolution. Aphids also possess facultative symbionts that confer other benefits, such as resistance to heat and to parasitoid attack.
While aphids in general feed on a wide variety of plants, different species of aphids can be specific to certain plants. For example, some species include bean aphids, cabbage aphids, potato aphids, green peach aphids, melon aphids, and woolly apple aphids. Some aphids are darker colors, like brown.
The potato aphid is a common brown aphid. Aphids are well-known as pests of agriculture, horticulture and forestry, but they are also one of the most biologically interesting groups of plant-feeding insects, and thus have attracted the attention of biologists in many research fields such as ecology, biodiversity, physiology, behaviour and genetics.

The Evolution of Aphid Life Cycles The Evolution of Aphid Life Cycles Moran, N A sections of the largely taxonomic works of Heie (73) and of Blackman & Eastop (19) are useful for developing a broad overview of the variation in the superfamily, especially when combined with Eastop's (45, 46) surveys of particular tribes and genera.
Aphids need nitrogen, but phloem juices contain mostly sugars. To get adequate nutrition, aphids must consume an enormous quantity of phloem liquids.
They excrete the excess sugars in the form of honeydew, a sweet residue left behind on plant surfaces. Other insects, such as ants and wasps, follow behind the aphids, licking up the honeydew.Preface to book.
