Ajayi, O. and Dewar, A. M. 1983. The effect of barley yellow dwarf virus on field populations of the cereal aphids, Sitobion avenae and Metopolophium dirhodum. Annals of Applied Biology. 103 (1), pp. 1-11.
|Authors||Ajayi, O. and Dewar, A. M.|
The numbers of cereal aphids, especially Metopolophium dirhodum in 1979, and Sitobion avenae in 1980, were significantly increased on BYDV infected wheat and oats in 1979, and wheat, barley and oats in 1980.
The differences were probably caused by attraction of alates of each species to virus infected plants which had changed colour as a result of their infection. Significantly more alates of M. dirhodum were found on virus infected oats in 1979, and of S. avenae on oats and barley in 1980, although not on wheat in either year. probably because the colour contrast in wheat was less intense than in the other crops.
Flight chamber experiments with alates of both species confirmed their visual attraction to virus‐infected leaves. The interaction between virus, vector and host plants is discussed with reference to the ecology of virus spread.
