Abstract

Recent ecological theories predict higher typical abundances of herbivores on early, in comparison with late, successional plants and, within the same species, on seedling in comparison with mature plants. The abundances of leaf-mining insects on different types of plants were measured in comparable units to test the hypothesis. The relative abundances of leaf miners were found to vary as predicted by theory. /// Современные экологические теории предполагают более высокие типичные показатели обилия фитофагов на растениях ранних сукцессионных стадий в сравнении с более поздними, а в пределах одного вида - более высокие показатели на всходах в сравнении с зрелыми разтениями. Численность минирующих листья насекомых на разных типах растений определяли в сравнимых показателях для проверки гипотезы. Относительное обилие листовых минеров варьирует в соответствии с теоретическими предпссылками.
