Abstract: Some plants own the mechanism protecting them against the infestation of the eriophyoid mites or rendering quick regeneration of injuries caused by mites possible. The specific morphological or chemical features preventing the establishment or limiting the colonization of mites and their feeding play an important role in this mechanism. The eriophyoid feeding induces the wide diversity of host plantsí defensive responses. The infested plant sets in motion a series of biochemical, physiological and morphological processes that either limit the development and activity of mites or decrease the losses caused by their feeding. This work presents the examples of the defensive responses and the plant resistance to the infestation and feeding of mites and the plant-mite-plant interactions.
