Interactions between non-native plants and native insects: research gaps.

Abstract

This paper provides information on the research gaps in addressing the interactions of non-native plants and native insects in India. The importance of the role of native insects, as herbivores and pollinators, in the control and spread of non-native plants on a regional scale is discussed in order to understand and decipher how this interaction affects plant communities.
