Effects of the maternal and pre-adult host plant on adult performance and preference in the pea aphid, Acyrthosiphon pisum

Abstract:

1. The taxon known as the pea aphid, Acyrthosiphon pisum, is composed of a series of host plant associated populations and is widely used as a model system to explore ecological speciation and the evolution of specialisation. It is thus important to know how maternal and pre-adult experience influences host plant utilisation in this species. 2. The relative importance of the maternal and pre-adult host plant for adult fecundity and host preference was investigated using three aphid clones col...
