1. Aphids are notorious pests of world agriculture. Even so, uncertainty persists as to their capacity for successful aerial dispersal. Evidence exists that, under some conditions, aphids can be wind‐borne over long distances, i.e. hundreds of kilometers over desert or sea. It has been argued, in the recent past, that this phenomenon may be part of a strategy to locate fresh host plants in new distant areas. However, the proportion of these insects successfully colonizing new hosts is unknown.

Aphid colony turn‐over influences the spatial distribution of the grain aphid Sitobion avenae over the wheat growing season
TLDR
This work has shown that phytophagous insects, such as crop pests living in agroecosystems, have a high ability to find and exploit new patches in temporary habitats, and their invasion is of great agricultural importance. Expand
Polymorphism and Damage of Aphids (Homoptera: Aphidoidea)
TLDR
It is shown that damage of aphids is determined by their mode of feeding on plant sap, gregariousness, short- and long-range dispersal, and intraspecific variation. Expand
Walking aphids can partake in within-field dispersal to distant plants
TLDR
The aphids’ walking abilities may have strong implications for their spatial distribution in natural habitats, for their levels of infestation and damage and for virus epidemiology in agricultural fields, and should be incorporated in models of aphid and virus dispersal. Expand
The role of landscape context in biological control of cereal aphids
TLDR
Novel analytical approaches using random forests were used to explore temporal and inter-specific variation in the influence of landscape context on species of aphid and hymenopterous parasitoid in winter wheat fields in the UK, and to produce models predicting the abundance of aphids, parasitoids and syrphid larvae as functional groups. Expand
Symbiont‐conferred protection against Hymenopteran parasitoids in aphids: how general is it?
1. Hosts are often targeted by multiple species of parasites, leading to a confluence of selective pressures on them. In response, hosts may either evolve defences that act very generally, orExpand
Migratory Aphid (Hemiptera: Aphididae) Habitat Selection in Agricultural and Adjacent Natural Habitats
TLDR
Paired suction traps were used to study the habitat choice of migrating aphids in adjacent crop and natural habitats in east central Illinois, finding that outside-source aphids were more abundant in the row-crop than the restored prairie, despite the absence of potential host plants. Expand
Tracking movement in small insect pests, with special reference to aphid populations
TLDR
A national survey-system that could be managed by specialist centres and involving members of the Public, that would enable invasive pest insect populations to be tracked efficiently is outlined, and an insect tracking mandate is described that will promote the standardisation of population movement measurements. Expand
Cereal aphid movement: general principles and simulation modelling
TLDR
An overview of how knowledge about cereal aphid flight and migration can be utilized by mechanistic simulation models is presented, and specific gaps in knowledge are identified for researchers who may wish to further scientific understanding of aphidFlight behaviour. Expand
Population Dynamics, Demography, Dispersal and Spread of Bemisia tabaci
Understanding the population-level processes of any pest insect is central to predicting temporal and spatial changes in abundance and occurrence, as well as in developing effective pest managementExpand
Characterization of microsatellite loci in the aphid species Metopeurum fuscoviride (Homoptera, Aphididae)
TLDR
Six polymorphic microsatellite loci are isolated in the aphid species Metopeurum fuscoviride Stroyan, monophagous on the common Tansy, indicating that the resolution will be high enough to study differentiation on a small spatial scale. Expand

TLDR
It is concluded that long-range dispersal has received inadequate attention in relation to its biological and economic importance. Expand
MIGRATION AND THE SPATIAL DYNAMICS OF AN APHID, MYZUSPERSICAE
TLDR
There has yet been no evidence of any resulting geographical pattern in the epidemiology of aphids, nor any field assessment of the relative contribution made by the environment and by the individual behaviour to the ultimate spatial distribution of populations, so it remains to be seen if aphids such as Myzus persicae (Sulz.) are as effective in finding and exploiting their spatially mobile resources as their highly sophisticated resource-searching adaptations might lead one to expect.

Aerial migrations of the rose‐grain aphid, Metopolophium dirhodum(Wlk.), over Europe in 1979
TLDR
Aerial migrations of Metopolophium dirhodum over Europe in 1979 measured by suction traps indicated that alates flew first in the south of France where the warm climate probably encouraged early population increase. Expand

COMPARATIVE DYNAMICS OF A SINGLE-HOST APHID. I. THE EVIDENCE
TLDR
The dynamics of thimbleberry aphid on its wild perennial host at different parts of its geographical range are compared, and the external factors which restrict both the dynamics and the range are examined. Expand
Winter mortality, development and reproduction in a field population of Myzus persicae (Sulzer) (Hemiptera: Aphididae) in England
Population change in Myzus persicae (Sulz.) overwintering on spring cabbage in south-eastern England was studied in relation to meteorological and biological factors. Leaf surface wetness andExpand
Spatial pattern of abundance of the black bean aphid, Aphis fabae, in Britain
TLDR
The wide distribution of wild hosts in late summer affects the numbers of autumn migrants, and the regional variation in abundance of E. europaeus affects the success of the aphid in finding sites for overwintering eggs. Expand
The migratory ambit of the hop aphid and its significance in aphid population dynamics.
TLDR
Of about 320 species of aphids whose aerial distributions were examined, only sexual autumn migrants of the hop aphid originated from dense, isolated and persistent population 'patches', and migration was not random, but directional orientation was negligible. Expand
