Ford, Karen; Saraf, Isha; Hocart, Charles; Youngentob, Kara; Singh, Inder Pal; Foley, William


A group of plant specialised metabolites (PSMs) collectively known as unsubstituted B-ring flavanones (UBFs) have previously been found in the foliage of some species from the genus Eucalyptus L’Hér. (Myrtaceae), specifically from the subgenus Eucalyptus (monocalypts). Captive feeding studies using artificial diets suggest that these compounds may potentially influence the feeding preferences of marsupial folivores, such as koalas. Understanding natural variation in the composition and...[Show more]
