    • Abstract


      The host relations ofCrotonothrips withMemecylon on the criterion of gall formation appear interesting. In the light of the morphogenetic courses that the susceptible host organ, the leaf, show, an attempt has been made to assess their functional efficiency in terms of structural adaptations envisaging the organisation of a nutritive zone, and tissue dynamics takingMemecylon edule, Memecylon lushingtonii, andMemecylon umbellatum as models.
