Coevolution? Insect/plant interactions have been important in defining models of coevolution and cospeciation. In the Canary Islands metapopulation structures combined with local variation in host plant ecology and habitat/island fragmentation may support Thompson’s ‘geographic mosaic theory of coevolution’ (Thompson ; Gomulkiewicz et al. ; Thompson & Cunningham . The leucaena psyllid (Heteropsylla cubana) causes defoliation and the death of leucaena. The insect is native to Central America, and has spread in the s across the Pacific to Asia, where it is now a serious pest and may spread to Africa. The biology of this pest is reviewed. The breeding of resistant varieties and the use of biological control measures, using the predatory Cited by: 3.

Department of Primary Industries and Fisheries Queensland Government Media Release 16 January Psyllid leucaena damage can be managed CENTRAL Queensland’s spring rains and warmer temperatures have created the ideal environment for a heavy build-up of the sap-sucking leucaena psyllid insect in highly productive leucaena-based Size: 39KB.
‘Wild’ leucaena arrived on the coast of northern Queensland in the late s, but it was not until the s that the ﬁ rst forage variety was released by the CSIRO. Another decade passed before the ﬁ rst commercial stands were planted in the s. In the mids, the leucaena psyllid insect devastated productive stands inFile Size: 2MB.
Hosts/Species Affected Top of page All thirteen species and all known hybrids of Leucaena are susceptible to some degree.
cubana seems to attack few other plant taxa, though Mimosa spp. and Piptadenia spp. appear to be susceptible, and other studies have indicated that the psyllid can also subsist on Albizia saman (Napompeth, ).H.

leucaena psyllid Native to Central America and Caribbean islands where the genus Leucaena occurs naturally. Leucaena (notably Leucaena leucocephala) has been used as an important agroforestry shrub throughout the tropics and subtropics and during the s and s the leucaena psyllid has rapidly followed this spread (Geiger and Gutierrez.
Psyllidae, the jumping plant lice or psyllids, are a family of small plant-feeding insects that tend to be very host-specific, i.e. each plant-louse species only feeds on one plant species (monophagous) or feeds on a few closely related plants (oligophagous). Together with aphids, phylloxerans, scale insects and whiteflies, they form the group called Sternorrhyncha, which is Class: Insecta.
The rapid spread of the leucaena psyllid, Heteropsylla cubana, across the Pacific Islands, Australia, southeast Asia and the Indian subcontinent durin the mids is legendary in the annals of modern economic entomolgy. The purpose of this sub-regional workshop was to bring together research scientists, forest pest management specialists and foresters from African.

Abstract An account of the biological control programme for H. cubana developed by the Hawaii Department of Agriculture, describing the early taxonomic confusion caused by the presence of 3 species of Heteropsylla in Hawaii, host range tests, the search for natural enemies, and quarantine and field natural control of H.

Psyllid-resistant leucaena to bolster northern beef production 14 August Seed from a new psyllid-resistant variety of the tropical legume pasture leucaena will soon be available to commercial cattle producers, opening the way for massive productivity gains in northern Australia.
leucaena psyllid in East and Southern Africa, focusing particularly on the use of pest resistant leucaena species and classical biological control. New knowledge was being sought on the performance of newly collected accessions of leucaena and their resistance/tolerance to the psyllid, and on the performance and impact of classical.

There are over species of psyllids found throughout North America. Here’s how to identify and get rid of them using proven, natural and organic treatments.
Sometimes called jumping plant lice, psyllids feed on a variety of plants including most fruit trees and small fruits as well as tomato and potato. Both adults and nymphs feed by. Psyllid definition is - psylla. Recent Examples on the Web For the next 15 years, Baumann, Moran, and their colleagues used similar DNA analyses to document equally long-term relationships between bacteria and white flies, spittlebugs, cicadas, leafhoppers, and psyllids.

Redlands has enabled leucaena to be adopted by graziers in humid coastal environments. Many of these graziers have limited knowledge and experience of leucaena production systems. The. Six- and twelve-month results are reported from this trial in Hawaii, which is part of the International Leucaena Psyllid [Heteropsylla cubana] Trial Network established in by the NFTA.
Each trial had a standardized design in which trees were managed as hedgerows for fodder production (in order to maintain high psyllid populations).Cited by: Treatment for Psyllids.
Psyllid control information available online may recommend a wide range of chemical sprays, monitoring and beating of the bushes, but in practice, psyllids on most plants can be ignored so long as you put the broad-spectrum insecticides away and allow beneficial insects to feed in your garden.
Psyllids (Hemiptera: Psylloidea) are small insects that suck plant juices. The adults resemble miniature cicadas and are sometimes called jumping plantlice.
Over psyllid species occur on native or introduced landscape plants in California. Several psyllid species are pests of crops such as citrus, olive, pear, potato, and tomato.In Uganda, the productivity of leucaena has been drastically reduced by a psyllid. If left unpruned it will grow into a small to medium tree, but it it is often managed as a shrub.
