Biology, Disease Ecology / Epidemiology, Evolutionary Biology / Genetics

This chapter looks at the specificity of parasites, noting it as an important character. Normally, specificity is measured by the observation of infected host species, or the host range. Host range, ... More

Michael S. Singer

in Specialization, Speciation, and Radiation: The Evolutionary Biology of Herbivorous Insects

Subject:
Biology, Evolutionary Biology / Genetics

The evolutionary ecology of polyphagy by phytophagous insects has been overshadowed by an intense focus on the evolutionary ecology of their host specificity. This bias reflects the preponderance of ... More

Subject:
Biology, Evolutionary Biology / Genetics

Plant–insect cophylogeny has been investigated across a range of ecological conditions including herbivory, mutualism, and seed parasitism. It has been argued from phylogeny that non-pollinating seed ... More
