  • The objective of the present study was to assess oviposition site selection by females of various groundnut seed‐beetle strains, Caryedon serratus, bred from different hosts. Tests of choice on pods of various host plants were initially made. Egg distributions among hosts were compared. The levels of adaptation of wild strains on groundnut and the capacities of development of \"groundnut\" strain on the seeds of the wild hosts were also tested. Results indicated that strains may be considered… CONTINUE READING
