Intraspecific variation in plant chemistry and implications for ecological interactions

Bustos Segura, Carlos Eduardo

Description

Plants produce a wide range of secondary metabolites (PSMs) that are involved in defence against herbivores and other natural enemies as well as influencing with higher trophic levels. Variation of PSMs within species can be both quantitative and qualitative. In this research thesis I focused on intraspecific qualitative variation in PSMs and its consequences on ecological interactions, particularly between plants and herbivores. I used a range of experimental...[Show more]
