Abstract

Researches the correlation between resistance to azalea lace bug and the presence of lipids found in the leaf surfaces of seven Rhododendron genotypes. The high level of resistance in R. canescens may be due to reduced amounts of lipids that serve as attractants or stimulants for feeding or oviposition of the azalea lace bug.
