, herbivorous sea slugs attack desiccation-prone, green algal hosts (Codium spp.): indirect evidence of prey-stress models (PSMs)?
These are mostly generalist predators but some spiders are stenophagous
that can check the population of certain insect pests (Liznarova et al., 2013; Pekar and Toft, 2014; Petrakova et al., 2015).
Monophagous and stenophagous
tephritids are attracted by chemical, visual, and tactile stimuli, and are selective when choosing oviposition sites (Papaj 2000).
latus, Bi = 0.042), indicating that only a few prey types dominate the diet and predators can be classified as stenophagous
All are stenophagous
, specializing on saltbush and its relatives.
Thus, confirmation of araneophagy as a preferred trophic strategy awaits future observations and it is currently unknown whether these are stenophagous
or euryphagous predators.
The effects of sequentially switching food plants upon biomass and nitrogen utilization by polyphagous and stenophagous
Chemical basis of host selection in four stenophagous
insects found on Convolvulus and Calystegia at Belleville, Ontario.
Unlike the other paradigms of plant -- herbivore interactions that are based on observations of generalist herbivores, this hypothesis seeks to explain the feeding behavior of specialized, stenophagous
This is not surprising for stenophagous
species (in this study, Onchidoris and Alderia have restricted trophic requirements) as these larvae would be expected to metamorphose only on a highly specific substrate (Seeleman, 1933; Chia and Koss, 1988).
The hawks were more diverse (euryphagous) in feeding habits with maximum feeding during summer while kites were less diverse (stenophagous
) in feeding with feeding at peak during autumn.
The avocado lace bug (ALB), Pseudacysta perseae (Heidemann) (Heteroptera:Tingidae), is a stenophagous
insect originally found in Mexico and southeastern North America affecting plants of the genus Persea (Laurales: Lauraceae), i.e., Persea americana, P.
