Insects and Other Arthropods That Feed on Aquatic and Wetland Plants
by Ted D. Center, F. Allen Dray, Jr., Greg P. Jubinsky, and Michael J. Grodowitz
Plant-feeding insects play an often unappreciated but important role in the dynamics of aquatic and wetland ecosystems. Natural resource managers, scientists, and others working in such ecosystems need to be able to recognize these insects and the damage they cause. This manual provides photographs and descriptions of the life stages and feeding damage of about 50 of the most common native plant-feeding insects and naturalized biological control insects found in aquatic and wetland ecosystems in the United States.
