We used comparative methods that account for the phylogenetic correlations among species to test hypotheses about the community of gall-inducing insects on dicotyledonous and monocotyledonous plants and woody and herbaceous angiosperms in the UK. We found that the species richness of gall-inducing insects on dicots was greater than on monocots and that the odds of a dicot having an associated gall-inducing insect is 42% higher than for a monocot. Woody angiosperms have higher species richness… CONTINUE READING
