    Description

    Intensive herbivory may influence the resources available to the next generation of herbivore in three ways: quantity may decrease, be unchanged, or increase. There are now two good examples of the last possibility. One of them concerns Monochamus beetles on firs in Siberia (Isaev et al. 1984), and the other a galling sawfly on willow in Arizona (Craig et al. 1986). The highly intimate and sedentary way of life of galling insects should predispose them to evolve the means to manipulate their hosts. Therefore, it is not surprising that a third example which we report herein deals also with a gallmaker.
