ABSTRACT
Palatability of 20 plant species to the slugs Deroceras reticulatum (O. F. Müller), Arion lusitanicus Mabille and Arion rufus (Linnaeus) was estimated in laboratory food tests (multiple-choice and no-choice). The rate and degree of damage to seedlings and leaves of weeds, herbs and winter oilseed rape were determined, and plant species preferred or rejected by particular slug species were identified. Brassica napus and Datura stramonium were preferred by all the examined slugs, while Geranium robertianum was rejected. The slug species differed in their preferences for the remaining plant species.
