Abstract
The feeding preference by Thaumastocoris peregrinus, Carpintero and Dellapé (Heteroptera: Thaumastocoridae) on different Eucalyptus species was evaluated through choice tests in a paired comparisons design. Twenty individuals per combination were tested over a 48 h period, and each one was offered leaves of two species at a time, in all possible combinations. Preference was determined by counting the number of insect excrements on each plant as a proxy for effective feeding, and then ranked through a paired comparison matrix. A linearity index was calculated to test for hierarchy preferences and, after that, a cardinal index (David’s score) was calculated to ass...
