EFFECT OF THE WATER STRESS IN THE CHEMICAL COMPOSITION OF BRASSICÁCEAS AND THEIR EFFECTS ON Plutella xylostella (L., 1795) (LEPIDOPTERA: PLUTELLIDAE).

Abstract

Plutella xylostella (Lepidoptera: Plutellidae), also called diamond back moth, is an important pest of Brassicaceae, which can be found on all continents. The relationship between P. xylostella and brassicaceae has been much studied, and these plants, in general, use secondary metabolic as a defense against the attack of generalist insects. For specialist pests, like P. xylostella, some metabolic are inciting to the feeding and oviposition. In the insect-plant interaction there are questions that are not understood, or are poorly understood, and which must be studied because there are several biotic and abiotic influences interacting in these organisms and can promote physiological and nutritional changes in the plant and also in the development of the insects. Thus, the objective of this work will be to evaluate the influence of water stress on plant varieties of the Brassicaceae family and its effect on the herbivore P. xylostella. (AU)
