The effect of genetic variation of oak (Quercus pubescens L. and Q. petraea L.) on the genotype fitness components in green oak leafroller moth larvae (Tortrix viridana L.) at esterase (Est-4) and protease (Pts-4) loci was studied. The samples of larvae were collected from nine oak trees, whose genetic variation was assayed by RAPD-PCR using primer OPA14. The contributions of the factors of oak species/genotype and green oak leafroller moth genotype and their interaction to the variation of important size-related traits of the larvae were evaluated by two-way ANOVA. It was shown that the same larval genotype can display maximum fitness on the trees of one species or genotype and minimum, on the trees of other species or genotype. The interactions between the oak genotype and green oak leafroller moth genotype factors lead to the relationships that appear in statistically significant associations between genotype classes of green oak leafroller moth and oak. These results are discussed from the standpoint of a recently developed new field, community or ecosystem genetics.
