Host plants mediate omnivore-herbivore interactions and influence prey suppression 

Eubanks, Micky D.; Denno, Robert F. (2019-12-19)
We conducted laboratory and field experiments to determine the effects of plant quality and prey abundance on the intensity of interactions involving an omnivorous insect, its two herbivorous prey, and their shared host ...

Micro- and Macroevolutionary Trade-Offs in Plant-Feeding Insects 

Peterson, Daniel A.; Hardy, Nate B; Normark, Benjamin B. (2022-10-14)
A long-standing hypothesis asserts that plant-feeding insects specialize on particular host plants because of negative interactions (trade-offs) between adaptations to alternative hosts, yet empirical evidence for such ...

Phylogenomics and the evolution of hemipteroid insects 

Johnson, Kevin P.; Dietrich, Christopher H.; Friedrich, Frank; Beutel, Rolf G.; Wipfler, Benjamin; Peters, Ralph S.; Allen, Julie M.; Petersen, Malte; Donath, Alexander; Walden, Kimberly K. O.; Kozlov, Alexey M.; Podsiadlowski, Lars; Mayer, Christoph; Meusemann, Karen; Vasilikopoulos, Alexandros; Waterhouse, Robert M.; Cameron, Stephen L.; Weirauch, Christiane; Swanson, Daniel R.; Percy, Diana M.; Hardy, Nate B.; Terry, Irene; Liu, Shanlin; Zhou, Xin; Misof, Bernhard; Robertson, Hugh M.; Yoshizawa, Kazunori (2022-10-14)
Hemipteroid insects (Paraneoptera), with over 10% of all known insect diversity, are a major component of terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems. Previous phylogenetic analyses have not consistently resolved the relationships ...

Plant defense theory provides insight into interactions involving inbred plants and insect herbivores 

Hull-Sanders, Helen M.; Eubanks, Micky D. (2019-12-19)
Inbreeding in the form of self-fertilization is widespread among plants and typically results in broad, detrimental changes in plant morphology and physiology. Phenotypic changes associated with inbreeding are likely to ...
