Abstract:The biology of Mononychellus tanajoa (Bondar) on resistant and susceptible genotypes of cassava, Manihot esculenta Crantz, was studied by using the leaf disc procedure. Mite biology was affected distinctly by different resistant sources. Among these effects were the lowering of fecundiyy, preference, larval and nymphal survival, adult longevity, and the rale of development as compared with the susceplible controls. The M Col 1434 resistant variety had the most severe effects on mite development, survival, and preference. M Bra 12, although showing high levels of resistance in the field, had intermediate effects on mite survival and preference.
