Hill, Roscoe E. (1946) Influence of food plants on fecundity, larval development and abundance of the tuber flea beetle in Nebraska (Research Bulletin: Bulletin of the Agricultural Experiment Station of Nebraska No. 143)
Laboratory and field tests were conducted to determine the effects of different food plants on fecundity, adult longevity and larval development of the tuber flea beetle, Epitrix tuberis Gentner. All food plants tested were those upon which the overwintered beetles commonly feed in the spring following emergence from hibernation.
