In conclusion, the process of pecan domestication within its native range appears
to have, on balance, intensified the ability of numerous arthropods to cause
damage although much remains to be done to identify the nature and extent of
this exposure. The nut feeders, particularly pecan nut casebearer and pecan
weevil, constitute the key pests in the pecan arthropod complex and represent
those for which host plant resistance would be most valuable. These arthropods
also severely ...

Plant breeders, entomologists, and others have invested tremendous amounts of
effort and resources toward the development and deployment of vegetable crops
resistant to arthropods. Despite the difficulties inherent in incorporating arthropod
resistance into vegetable crops, the return on the investment has been promising.
However, this promise falls short of that anticipated for plant resistance in
vegetable crops.55,98,105 For plant resistance to meet its full potential in

Resistance. The literature commonly describes three types of plant resistance to
arthropods, which Painter (1951) originally defined as non-preference, antibiosis,
and tolerance. Kogan and Ortman (1978) suggested replacing the term non-
preference with antixenosis because non-preference only concerns insect
behavior and antixenosis occurs when a plant or variety is less used by insects
for nutrition, oviposition, or as shelter compared to others under equal conditions.
Antixenosis ...
