Most herbivorous arthropods are specialists that feed on one or a few related plant species. To understand why this is so, both mechanistic and functional studies have been carried out, predominantly restricted to bitrophic aspects. Host-selection behaviour of herbivorous arthropods has been intensively studied and this has provided ample evidence for the role of secondary plant chemicals as source of information in behavioural decisions of herbivores. Many evolutionary studies have regarded co… CONTINUE READING
