Physiological integration plays key role in cranberry (Ericales: Ericaceae) for tolerance of damage by Dasineura oxycoccana (Diptera: Cecidomyiidae).

Abstract

Understanding the mechanisms by which plants tolerate herbivory is important in the study of insect-plant interactions. In cranberry, current season growth has been identified as the main source of photosynthate for the developing fruits. Feeding injury by larvae of cranberry tipworm, Dasineura oxycoccana Johnson, disrupts the apical growth of cranberry… (More)
