Aphid (Hemiptera: Aphidoidea) diversity in Tunisia in relation to seed potato production
Annales de la Société Entomologique de France 43 (3), 311-318
Abstract: Winged morphs of aphids were investigated from 2002 to 2004 in 4 Tunisian regions of potato seeds production in order to know the aphid diversity and the potential vectors of Potato Virus Y. This is a very important contribution to the knowledge of aphid fauna in Maghreb. A total of 50,030 aphids were caught using yellow water traps and one suction trap. 130 taxa were identified including 103 species. Ten species are well represented in all regions prospected and typical species were also observed in every region. Some differences in species diversity appeared between regions which are discussed considering weather condition and vegetation.
