The article offers information on the study conducted regarding the implication of larval diet and nectar nicotine feeding to the sexual behavior of Manduca Sexta. Researchers found that many of these lepidoptera interact with the same plant species, both herbivorous larvae and nectar-feeding adults. Moreover, they found that the said behavior paves the way to influence both pollination and herbivory in floral and foliar tissue.
