Abstract:

A field experiment was conducted in nearby areas of Bhubaneswar to document the insect pests associated with some important tree species used for avenue plantations. The species taken for study are Gambhar (Gmelina arborea, Verbenaceae), Kadam (Neolamarkia cadamba), Mahogany, (Swetnia macrophylla) Kangada (Xylia xylocarpa Fabaceae)and Spanish cherry(Mimosups elengi, Sapotaceae). A total of 50 numbers of insect pests have been recorded. While categorizing the recorded insects based upon their mode of damage, foliage feeders are found as the dominant groups comprising more than 50% of total recorded insect pests followed by sap feeders (22%). The bark feeders like termite and Inderbela comprises the third largest group (16.0%) in the studied location. While categorizing the available insects on taxonomic aspects. Lepidepterous insects are found as pioneer among all comprising of 34% of the total followed by the sap feeders belonging to hemiptera. (22%). Coleopterous insects occupies the third positioned with 12% share of the total recorded species Among plant species Kadam recorded highest Lepidepterous diversity (66.6%) followed by Gambhar (30.00%). Orthopteran population including grasshoppers and crickets were more recorded in Mahogany (57.14%) followed by Mimusops.
