Acer saccharum seedlings were exposed to either cool (11.9°C) or warm (18.2°C) temperatures in the presence or absence of adult Taeniothrips inconsequens during bud burst and early spring growth. Time required for spring stem elongation was shorter at the warm than at the cool temperature. Thrips feeding reduced height, leaf are, and seedling dry weight at both temperatures: reductions were greater at the cool temperature than at the warm temperature. -from Authors
