Abstract/Contents:Explores the insect-plant relationship in grasses grown for seed, suggesting that it is the change in plant characteristics over time rather than insects that can potentially promote or diminish pest infestation. Presents a table ranking the severity of common pests in bluegrass, fine fescue, bentgrass, orchardgrass, and ryegrass, noting the part of the plant to experience damage. Provides several recommendations on research approaches to studying the effects of insect infestation, emphasizing seasonal timing of study and rearing environment. Encourages researchers to consider insect diapause when beginning a study, and indicates that breeding insect-resistant cultivars may be "the only economical way to suppress pest populations on range grasses."
