Differences in gene expression within a striking phenotypic mosaic Eucalyptustree that varies in susceptibility to herbivory

Padovan, Amanda; Keszei, Andras; Foley, William J; Külheim, Carsten


BACKGROUND Long-lived trees can accumulate mutations throughout their lifetimes that may influence biotic and abiotic interactions. For example, some Eucalyptus trees display marked variation in herbivore defence within a single canopy. These “mosaic” trees support foliage with distinct chemotypes which are differentially favoured by insect and vertebrate herbivores, resulting in susceptible and resistant branches within a single canopy. These mosaic trees provide a unique...[Show more]
