It is becoming increasingly clear that the impact of low doses of an environmental stressor, such as Bacillus thuringiensis, can often not be predicted from high dose experiments, and the impact of these effects on the evolution of resistance has received little attention. In the present study, we examined the effect of low levels of B. thuringiensis exposure on the growth, food consumption and digestion efficiencies of Trichoplusia ni resistant and susceptible to Bt. Larvae were fed on… CONTINUE READING
