Technical Abstract: Effect of brown, Euschistus servus (Say), and southern green stink bug, Nezara viridula (L.) (Hemiptera: Pentatomidae), feeding on 2- 3- and 4-leaf stages of corn seedlings was examined under greenhouse conditions. Impact of stink bug feeding was assessed by morphological (i.e., plant height, stem circumference) and physiological parameters (i.e., photosynthetic rate, and light and CO2 response curves). The impact of stink bug feeding on corn seedlings varied among the growth stages of corn seedlings.
