Examination of four species of aphid and four of whitefly showed that mannitol was present in each species of aphid, while sorbitol was present in the whitefly species. In the cotton aphid, Aphis gossypii Glover, the total body content of mannitol was considerably higher at noon than during the early morning. A similar increase in the sorbitol content of the silverleaf whitefly, Bemisia argentifolii Bellows and Perring, was also demonstrated. In both species, polyol synthesis is stimulated by… CONTINUE READING
