Effect of two solanaceous
plants on developmental and population parameters of the tomato leaf miner, Tuta absoluta (Meyrick) (Lepidoptera: Gelechiidae).
The disease also affects other plants, especially solanaceous
plants such as tomatoes, tobacco, peppers and eggplants.
Or SolGenes, the world's most comprehensive genome database for solanaceous
crops like tomatoes, peppers, and potatoes.
Anthonomus eugenii develops on cultivated and wild species of the solanaceous
genera Capsicum and Solanum (Clark & Burke 1996), being, however, a pest only of Capsicum (Morales 1989; Patrock & Schuster 1992).
Sometimes called the solanaceous
fruit fly, the Malaysian fruit fly, Bactrocera latifrons, lays its eggs in peppers, tomatoes, eggplants, and cucurbits.
As demonstrated earlier (Barbara & Capinera 2003) and in these tests, however, solanaceous
crops were less preferred.
For example, there are 162 nationally endemic species of Solanaceae in Peru (Brako & Zarucchi, 1993), but this number is high only because there are many solanaceous
species, not because the proportion of endemics is particularly high: 30.
These crops belong to a botanical family known as solanaceous
plants, after the Latin name for the group, Solanaceae.

Two-dimensional spreads of synaptonemal complexes from solanaceous
In addition to the impacts to cattle producers, TSA is a reservoir of several plant pathogens and serves as a host for a number of insect pests of solanaceous
crops (McGovern et al.
Applied to Brown's objects of study, the Ithomiinae, this means that these butterflies colonized their present solanaceous
larval host plants long after their distinctive pattern of secondary metabolites had evolved.
