Physiological Age of Host Plant Foliage and Survival of Gypsy Moth Larvae

  title={Physiological Age of Host Plant Foliage and Survival of Gypsy Moth Larvae},
  author={Vasily I. Ponomarev},
  journal={Russian Journal of Ecology},
The pH of leaf homogenates of common birch (Betula verrucosa L.), a food plant of gypsy moth (Lymantria dispar L.) larvae, was measured at different times of day in the course of leaf organogenesis, and midgut pH was measured in gypsy moth larvae phenotypically differing in the color of the hypodermis at the fifth instar. A possible relation between these parameters is discussed.
