- ... Several studies have shown that group feeding by immature insects enhances larval performance through feeding facilitation. However, the benefits of this behavior have not been studied for species that hatch off from their host plant. For these taxa, group feeding may enhance recruitment of newly emerging larvae and may improve larval performance through feeding facilitation. I conducted laborator ...

- ... The potential of two invasive herbaceous vines Vincetoxicum nigrum (L.) Moench and Vincetoxicum rossicum (Kleopow) Barbar. (Asclepiadaceae) to reduce monarch butterfly (Danaus plexippus L.) (Lepidoptera: Nymphalidae, Danainae) populations was investigated by evaluating oviposition selection in adult monarch butterflies and larval feeding preference in choice tests comparing the native host plant o ...
