Expansion of Geographic or Host Range

Fundamentals of Stored-Product Entomology textbook discusses how the expansion of the geographic and/or host ranges of Cynaeus angustus (p. 53, 201), Prostephanus truncatus (p. 17, 201) and Trogoderma granarium (p. 20, 201)  have occurred during recorded history. Stored-Product Insect Resource book discusses the expansion of geographic and/or host ranges for Acanthoscelides obtectus (p.4, 203), Caryedon serratus (p. 48, 203), Cynaeus angustus (p. 71, 203), Prostephanus truncatus (p. 150, 203), Trogoderma granarium (p. 3, 189-190) and Zabrotes subfasciatus (p. 198, 203). Conditions allowing other stored-product insect species to expand their geographic and/or host range also are discussed on p. 3 and counties into which species have been introduced are noted in Table 1.1. The adaptation of Sitophilus oryzae to non-cereal grain hosts is discussed in Atlas of Stored-Product Insects and Mites book (p. 200). Other pages on this website provide citations for examples of geographic range expansion and efforts to prevent these expansions (See Regulatory Control of Khapra beetle, Regulatory Control of Potato Tuber Worm and Regulatory Control of Sweetpotato Weevil). The following references provide additional information the expansion of geographic and host range.
