Abstract/Contents:The preferences and reproduction of the cereal pests Schizaphis graminum (Rond.),Stiobion avenae (F.), Rhopalosiphum padi (L.) and R. maidis (Fitch) on seedlings and mature stages of 15 species of weed grasses occurring in the Northern Plains of the USA (eastern North and South Dakota and western Minnesota) were studied under controlled conditions in environmental chambers. In the preference tests, Poa pratensis , Bromus japonicus and Stipa viridula were as attractive as seedlings and mature plants to alighting Schizaphis graminum as barley, while mature B. japonicus and Stipa viridula were again as attractive as barley, together with S. comata. Sitobion avenae preferred to alight on seedlings of Setaria lutescens, Avena fatua and Bromus japonicus; none of the mature grasses was as attractive to this aphid as barley. Cereal aphid reproduction was generally higher on seedlings than on mature grasses. The numbers of R. padi at least doubled in 1 week on 1 seedling and 13 mature grasses, whereas those R. maidis did so on 4 seedling and 3 mature grasses; the other aphid species ranged between these extremes in their adaptability. Correlation coefficients showed that aphid preferences for particular grasses and their reproductive success when confined on them were often closely related.
