A biological interaction is existed between host plant and phloem feeder. In this interaction, plant based defense responses are activated. These plant defense responses function in a variety of ways for hindering the invaders. In insect-plant interaction, recent researches focus on the interaction of aphids with their host plants and make them a model phloem feeder. Hence this review article is based on the consequences of aphid’s interaction to their host plants as well as phloem based defense mechanism that is activated in response of this interaction.
