Hazarika, L.K., Rahman, T., Das, P., Kalita, S., Sharma, K.K., & Mohanasundaram, A. 2022 Exploration of native plants of Assam for host preference of lac insect Kerria chinensis. Indian Journal of Entomology 84(2): 280-285
Notes: Study on morphological parameters revealed that the girth of the bark of the plants possesses significant negative correlation with the settlement density of crawlers as well as production of lac. However, trichome density of the bark was found to possess positive but non-significant correlation with the settlement density of crawlers as well as production of lac.
