Introduction Larvae are a characteristic feature of all thrips life histories. But what is the evolutionary significance of larvae in this order? In most insects the preadult developmental instars provide the species with a means of obtaining nutrition and sometimes of dispersal (Wolpert et al., 1998). These allow a population to exploit new and different habitats or environments for feeding. From this view selection strategies are clear and understandable. But what of larval and adult thrips… Expand
