Summary1. Ecological and physiological costs of resistance to herbivory are core concepts in the study of plant-insect interactions, but identifying them remains challenging. These costs are most obvious when trade-offs in resource allocation occur between different growth and resistance traits. 2. We used plant genotypes collected from long-term herbivore exclusion plots and from plots with natural herbivory. We evaluated putative trade-offs between resistance to two different herbivore species (the larvae o… Show more
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and understand research articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by students researchers from around the world and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
