Peripheral and central structures involved in insect gustation
Studies in insect gustation have a long history in general physiology, particularly with work on fly labellar and tarsal sensilla and in the general field of insect‐plant interactions, where work onExpand

An Examination of Serotonin and Feeding in the Flesh Fly Neobellieria bullata (Sarcophagidae: Diptera)
The role of serotonin in controlling feeding in flesh flies is examined. Amount of feeding was recorded over 6 h for flies injected with serotonin or saline. The proportion of time spent on variousExpand

Physiology of the maxillary sugar sensitive cell in the red turnip beetle,Entomoscelis americana
SummaryThe galeae of red turnip beetle larvae each have a single sensillum which is chemosensitive. One of the four chemosensitive cells in this sensillum responds to sugars, sucrose and mannoseExpand

Quiescence in the Colorado potato beetle, Leptinotarsa decemlineata
Quiescence (death feigning) was induced in the Colorado potato beetle, Leptinotarsa decemlineata by mechanical disturbance of live and artificial plants on which beetles were walking, feeding orExpand

Characterization of galeal chemosensilla in the adult Colorado beetle, Leptinotarsa decemlineata
ABSTRACT. Approximately fifteen gustatory sensilla are present on the galeae of adult Colorado potato beetle, Leptinotarsa decemlineata Say (Coleoptera: Chrysomelidae). In the SEM, these sensilla areExpand

Taste receptors in Colorado beetle larvae.
Abstract Electrophysiological studies show that at least six sensilla on the various mouthparts of larval Colorado potato beetles (Leptinotarsa decemlineata) contain chemosensory cells. TheseExpand

The chemosensory basis of host-plant recognition in Chrysomelidae
Chrysomelid beetles offer excellent opportunities for detailed and comparative study of feeding behaviour and of the sensory mechanisms underlying trophic relationships. Many genera contain speciesExpand

BEHAVIOURAL AND ELECTROPHYSIOLOGICAL INVESTIGATIONS ON THE RESPONSES OF LARVAE OF THE COLORADO POTATO BEETLE (LEPTINOT ARSA DECEMLINEATA) TO AMINO ACIDS
Behavioural observations utilizing feeding and dual choice experiments showed that a limited number of amino acids is involved in the feeding response of the fourth‐instar larva of LeptinotarsaExpand

Adult leaf beetles as models for exploring the chemical basis of host-plant recognition
Abstract This paper reviews studies on adult Chrysomelid beetles which have provided insight into the role of phytochemicals as feeding attractants, stimulants, deterrents and host-recognitionExpand
