comment How do plant galls form?
I recently aquired, "“Britain’s Plant Galls, a Photographic Guide.” It expanded upon what you said about insects injecting growth hormones: Sawflies belong with the gall wasps in the order Hymenoptera. The female has a tiny saw-like ovipositor with which she cuts slits in plants prior to laying her eggs. She injects a stimulant when laying her eggs and the galls start to grow before the eggs hatch. Most sawfly galls are solid at first and usually contain a single larva that gradually hollows them out. Mature larvae of most species leave their galls before pupating – often in the soil.

This is an exciting field. I am very interested in the potential to avoid the immune system.
