      A gall is a deformity in a plant that’s caused by another organism—which could be a fungus or a bacterium or a mite, but many of the most conspicuous ones are insect-caused. There are wasps and flies [including midges] and aphids .   To identify galls, probably the best references are Plant Galls and Gall-Makers by E.P. Felt (Hafner Press) and The Plant-Feeding Gall Midges of North America by R.J. Gagne (Cornell Universtiy Press). Unfortunately, Felt’s book has been out of print for at least 25 years, and almost all oak galls are caused by gall wasps, not midges.

      Come one, come all. The Bent Science Salon officially opens in two weeks, on Thursday, September 21 at pm. First up: Weird Things in the Woods, channeled through a Weird Thing himself, yours truly, Jim Chatfield. This is only the first of these salons, continuing on the third Thursday of every month: next will be Dan Herms on Plant Phenology (Not .   The crown gall bacterium causes galls on more than species of plants in 90 plant families. Additionally, some gall makers, such as the spiny witch-hazel aphid and the cedar rust fungi have very specific life stories that cycle between two different types of host plants. The overall number and variety of galls is staggering.

    - Galls are growths created by insects, specifically insect larvae. They come in a wide variety of shapes, sizes and textures because they are actually created by the plant itself in reaction to the insect. These growths, or tumors, provide food and shelter for the growing insect until it reaches adulthood. See more ideas about Insect larvae, Insects and Plants pins. Inflorescence gall is serious problem in Khejri trees as it reduces the pod formation tremendously. Galls are formed as a result of nutritional dependence of gall makers on the plant tissue. Inflorescence gall are unique example of a plant pest relationship causing harmful effects such as hypertrophies and tumorous (neoplasmic) Size: KB.

the rich nutritive tissue in the gall. Galls such as Oak Bullet galls (illus. #4) and Crown Gall bacteria are also formed on twigs and branches, but they are usually much harder and thicker than galls formed on other tissue. Because galls are formed from the plant’s own tissue, a gall takes its form not only from the organism that initiated its.

Most of us have noticed galls as bizarre and often colourful distortions of plant growth, and wondered what goes on inside them. The drama enacted within a single gall may involve many species of insects and mites. Their interrelationships are intricate and their identification has been challenging.

The communities of insects and mites associated with galls of certain plants. The nomenclature of as well gall inducers as host plants has been updated. Information about specific groups of gall inducers has been reviewed and new insights were implemented.

To the proxy 9, galls and malformations described by Buhr and Houard, we added about 1, new galls which have been described in the more recent literature.

Many appear in Table 3, where they are organized under four themes: a greater focus on plants as gall‐makers, continued exploration of individual gall‐inducing species, and two comparative endeavors – one to compare plant galls to discover their unique and distinctive features, and the other to compare plant galls to other types of plant Author: Marion O.

Harris, Andrea Pitzschke. In the simplest terms, galls are plant tissue growths resulting from exposure to minute amounts of hormone-like chemicals produced by the gall makers. The gall makers can be fungi, bacteria, nematodes, or mites — but insects are the primary culprits.

Galls can occur on roots, flowers, bark or buds, but the galls on leaves and twigs are the. Euura is a genus of sawflies of the family Tenthredinidae, subfamily of the larvae feed externally on plants and some form plant galls on willows (Salix species).

Some authors have commented on the high level of specificity of gall makers and host plant association (Mani, ; Abrahamson & Weiss, ).

Although gall inducers belong to many different taxa, the gall makers induce galls in relatively few plant groups, and each one is closely related with the host. Galls consist of modified host plant tissues that provide food and shelter for the developing larvae inside, which, in turn, control the development and morphology of the gall (Cornell, ; Price et al., ; Stone and Schönrogge, ) and have a negative impact on the host plant’s growth and/or fitness (Weis and Kapelinski, ).Cited by: 5.

Many plants serve as gall hosts, but certain plant groups are more attractive to gall producers than others. The Oak family is by far the most popular (with species of gall makers; the next largest family being the Daisy family, with less than gall makers).

Galls on oaks are most often caused by small wasps or midges.A number of sources have been used for information contained herein. The publications are included in the list of references.
