MARTINEZ-SANCHEZ, Itzcóatl et al. Chrysomelidae associated to timber and non-timber forest resources in Victoria, Tamaulipas. Rev. Mex. Cienc. Agríc [online]. 2016, vol.7, n.8, pp.1945-1957. ISSN 2007-0934.

Among the most economically important insect herbivores are Chrysomelidae, who are also bacteria vectors and phytopathogenic viruses. In Tamaulipas, 610 species of useful plants are listed, of which 30% are edible. Ecological processes such as herbivory caused by insect reduce the quality, quantity and price of plant products (leaves, stems, roots, flowers, fruits, seeds) which are fully or partially damaged. In the present study monthly collections were made directly and with insect net for a year from February 2012 to January 2013 in the localities of Cañon La Libertad and Cañon del Novillo, located in the municipality of Victoria, Tamaulipas. The biological material was mainly collected from plant species of economic importance, transported to the laboratory of entomology at the IEA-UAT for taxonomic determination. 26 species of Chrysomelidae belonging to 24 genera were determined.
