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
