Aphids are small sap-sucking insects and members of the superfamily names include greenfly and blackfly, although individuals within a species can vary widely in colour. The group includes the fluffy white woolly aphids.A typical life cycle involves flightless females giving living birth to female nymphs—whom may also be already pregnant, an adaptation scientists call Class: Insecta. Aphids represent one of the world's major insect pests, causing serious economic damage to a range of temperate and tropical crops. These range from grain crops and brassicas to potato, cotton, vegetable and fruit crops. This book provides a definitive reference volume on the biology of aphids, their pest status, and how to control them. It includes approximately 30 specially commissioned 4/5(1). Aphids are particularly good organisms for studying the evolution of sex for three reasons. First, they show coexistence of different reproductive modes within a species, either as alternating sexual and asexual phases (cyclical parthenogenesis), or as cyclical and obligate parthenogenesis (Fig. 1, Box 1).This allows a direct comparison of the genetic and evolutionary consequences of Cited by:

Tosh, and Jim HardieCited by: Aphids can also be regarded as holobionts because they are colonized by obligate and facultative microbes which enable them to feed exclusively on phloem sap and influence their resistance against pathogens, parasitoids or environmental stress.

The biosystematics, including taxonomy, is a powerful tool for the study of biodiversity that relies on many biological disciplines such as evolutionary biology, phylogeny, population genetics.
