    • Abstract


      Problems of systematics and speciation in the context of recent advances in the field of insect-plant interaction are highlighted with reference to the comparative study of speciation in relation to the population structure and genetic architecture of living organisms. The role of insect-plant interaction in the biosystematic study of some aquatic weevils, aphids and archid pollinators are also discussed besides sympatric speciation in some phytophagous insects.
