Caterpillar eating a rice stalk. Known as the striped rice borer, this caterpillar is the larva of the Chilo suppressalis moth. This work is part of research into transgenic (genetically modified) rice, aimed at modifying the rice so it is resistance to pests such as these. Cultivated rice (Oryza sativa) is a key food crop, forming the staple diet of around half the world's population. Photographed at the French agricultural research institute, CIRAD, in Montpellier, France.
