In this paper, the mactolepidoptera
feeding on Prunus species in Britain and Finland are examined, together
with the influence of host range and plant history on the breadth of
insect diet and insect species richness.
The authors recorded the identities
of insect and plant species and their interactions.
Data are presented as a binary interaction matrix, in which cells with
a "1" indicate an
interaction between a pair of species, and a "0" indicates no
