Impact of host plants on the genetic diversity of aphid (Homoptera) populations


The aim of this program is to analyse the influence of plant resistance on the DNA polymorphism of aphids, biotypes production and microspeciation. In the same context, the relationships between mites and plants are investigated. Moreover, the characterization of mite strain (Tetranychus urticae) by the use of RAPD-PCR, is now currently realized.
