    Description

    It is well known that large differences in performance parameters such as growth rate, survival rate, or fecundity rate are found between various insect guilds, e.g. root feeders and sapsuckers (Slansky and Rodriguez 1987, Slansky and Scriber 1985). Within guilds and even within a given host plant, the variability of the plant material may also result in considerable differences in the performance parameters of insect larvae feeding on the plant (Whitham 1983, Jensen 1988).
