The fitness of herbivores that have limited mobility as juveniles or larvae may often depend on the host choice behavior of adults. For such herbivores, selection should favor adults that choose plants that maximize the performance of their offspring, resulting in positive correlations across host plants among adult preferences, offspring performance (growth, survival, etc.), and for herbivores that are restricted to living on host plants, population-level parameters such as abundance on… CONTINUE READING
