Phenotyping thrips resistance of Arabidopsis accessions with video tracking and damage assays. Thrips feeding preference was monitored with automated video tracking. Half leaf discs in a 96-well plate were used to screen the preference of thrips for 345 Arabidopsis accessions relative to reference accession Col-0. a The proportion of time thrips spent on Col-0 relative to the test accession is presented for 0–40 min post inoculation. Shown are genotypic mean ± SE (N = 5). b Feeding damage after 6 days, in a two-choice whole plant assay. Mean ± SE; N = 9, P = 0.004 (Wilcoxon signed-rank test, two-tailed). c Feeding damage after six days, in a two-choice detached-leaf assay. Two adult females were released in a Petri dish that contained one leaf of both lines. Mean ± SE; N = 24, P = 0.004 (Wilcoxon signed-rank test, two-tailed)
