By JACQUES L. AUCLAIR2 Research Station, Research Branch, Canada Department of Agriculture, St. Jean, Quebec, Canada The subject of aphid feeding and nutrition is considered in its broader sense, and is being treated with special reference to the physiological and biochemical aspects, with occasional reference to the morphologic, behavÂ ioural, and ecologic aspects. The more practical and economic aspects of host-plant selection and resistance in relation to aphids are only briefly menÂ tioned. The principles of host selection in aphids, and in phytophagous inÂ sects in general, were previously reviewed by Kennedy & Stroyan ( 141 ) and Thorsteinson (295 ) , and aspects of resistance of plants to insects in general, and to aphids in particular, were discussed by Painter (238, 239 ) . The presÂ ent review should nevertheless represent a useful reference to those interÂ ested in host-plant resistance to aphids, virus transmission by aphids, as well as to insect physiologists in general, as it includes a collection of basic qualiÂ tative and quantitative data on the physiology and biochemistry of aphid feeding, digestion, and honeydew production, and a discussion on possible nutritional functions of symbiotes. Since knowledge of the feeding and nutrition of so
