Abstract: Plant responses against biotic stress agents are affected by a number of environmental conditions, including the presence of other pests and pathogens. Moreover, the impact of infestation on subsequent plant colonization by conspecifics can vary, reflecting the high diversity in the co-evolutionary processes shaping host-plant interactions. Here, we address this issue by studying how aphid-plant interplay can influence the subsequent colonization of zucchini plants (Cucurbita pepo L., Cucurbitaceae) by conspe…
