Project Aims

 

1) Quantification of the life-cycle of the currant-lettuce aphid, in particular, its overwintering biology.

2) Forecast of the timing of key events in the life-cycle/population development of the currant-lettuce aphid

3) Increased understanding of currant-lettuce aphid biology (e.g. the mid-summer crash, important natural enemies, alternative hosts)

4) Compare wild type and host-plant-resistance-breaking aphids
